    Lets say I started building backlinks for one of my website which was not even built yet. I just bought the domain and straight away started building backlinks. Now my question is how will I track the number of backlinks to it? I did not add it to Google Webmaster Tools/Analytics because it will ask me to add a Meta tag which I will not be able to because I have not built the website yet.

    What other option I am left with now?

    you can use yahoo site explorer, but why do you want to do that. worry about where your site ranks in the serps, not how many backlinks you have.

    true that.. I just wanted to know...Well, in Yahoo Site Explorer, do I not need to add my site prior to building the backlinks? Or can I view any site's backlinks any time?

    yahoo has to have found it first for links to show. you can submit your site for consideration or just let it happen naturally. in my experience it takes 1-3 days before I can check my site on yahoo site explorer.

    yahoo explorer will take too muc time for your needs (imho). but you should realy not start backlinking before your site is online

    It's true, but with adding single page "we are launching soon" with 300-500 char text about the project/product and optimized for kw you can start building authority and backlinks without waiting for a launch.
