    You can use a Firefox plugin called SearchStatus, then check Yahoo backlinks easily to monitor the backlink count.

    For more in depth reporting you can use tools like Market Samurai or SEO Spyglass to track changes in backlink count in a graph format.

    There are some free webpages also that will list the backlinks that are indexed. backlinkwatch is a great page. If you google 'backlink checker' it will pull up a few site that will help.

    backlinkwatch will list the backlinks coming in and the exact url its from, and keyword that it is pulling.

    Just google 'backlinks check'' and you'll find plenty of websites offering this.

    Link aggregation can take some time... you'll have to stagger your monitoring by a couple of weeks or it won't look like they're doing anything.

    I highly recommend MajesticSEO's tool, as it shows all the backlinks in their index (unlike tools that depend on partial backlink totals from Google/Yahoo).
