    Sometimes I use this http://www.iwebtool.com/backlink_checker

    However I agree with the Yahoo explorer.

    Yahoo site explorer.
    It works fine.
    But I am not pretty sure about whether it shows the exact number of backlinks

    some ppl prefer to close indexation from yahoo by setting permission to disallow yahoo bot to index a site in robots.txt file

    so, be prepared for this and check robots first

    That is a very limited thing to do. Yahoo can bring lots of traffic. Msn also. You just gotta target the right keywords.

    When it works which sadly has been a lot less recently, this is a great tool. Checks thousands of backlinks which is always useful,

    my favorite is jon legers web companalyst because it checks backlinks by their anchor text so I can see how difficult it will be to rank for a particular account.

    I actually paid for it but I think it might be here on BHW

    this is a pretty cool tool, need to download though. Havent used it in a while but as far as I remember it does anchor text, linking page title and PR as well.

    For my own websites, Google webmaster tools. For external sites Yahoo site explorer is good - also recommend hxxp://www(dot)linkdiagnosis(dot)com/
