    Hi, how do you discover backlinks. I want to subscribe to the linklicious service, but I understand it requires a list of links. I have some old sites, and have no idea where the links are coming from. Is majesticseo the answer?

    Thanks!

    Yeah - Majestic SEO offers a free option as well.

    Thanks, Download. I will give the free version of Majestic a try first.

    You could also take a look at SEO SpyGlass.

    Thanks, I would think SpyGlass would not work? After all, Majestic does its own crawl. I figure Spyglass depends on scraping SE. If they scrape google, that would not show many links.

    Thoughts?

    You must be right, Majestic SEO should show more links, because it does not rely on search engines.
