I was wondering if there was free software I could use to crawl someone's website to see if they link to my website? I also have access to Ahrefs and Screaming Frog. Thanks
 
Can't you just put your site into Ahrefs, take a look at your referring domains and check whether the particular website is there?

Ahrefs is one of the best tools out there.

This.

Or you can import this "someone's site" and check out his outbound links list and see if your website is in it.

As others have said Ahrefs is the best tool for this. Is it a link you're happy to have to one you want to get rid of?
 
I agree with others. Go to ahrefs backlinks RD then cntrl + F and see if you are there. Simple!

Ahrefs is seriously an all in one seo tool.
 
If you are able to get the website's sitemap and all the links on the site, you can then perhaps use Scrapebox to run over all those links and check for links back to your site's URL. Of course, there will be a one-time cost for Scrapebox, and you may need to do a little extra, but Ahrefs and all those other tools now cost money as well.
 
ahref and majestic is enough, I dont usually using other service, these site is not free. Most free service have very limited feature

The Scrapebox tip is more what I am looking for, but I am hoping for something free (like Screaming Frog - but I don't know if it has this functionality). Ahrefs is an amazing tool that I use everyday, but based on what I need it is not fast enough (neither is Search Console). I would like to be able to know if someone adds a link the second after they add it (for a cold outreachcampaign), and Google/Ahrefs takes between a week and two to find the information. Any other ideas?

Maybe I can build this myself if it doesn't exist - it wouldn't be tooooo hard

Just click the Referring Domains button and see if yours is there, it's instant.
I can't really comprehend why you've got those paid tools in your arsenal and still look for something free hehe.
 
Opensiteexplorer.org and majestic.com are good tools to check your links
 
Hmm. Ahrefs takes time to crawl websites. I need something that I can deploy instantly. Ahrefs is a great tool that I use evryday, but it does not tell me if a link is pointing to my website if, say, it was only placed 5 minutes ago. Do you know of any tools that can do this?
