    It seems with all the different link counting tools out there, I always get a different number when I try to find out the total number of links pointing to my site, or to a competitors site.

    What tool do you guys use to find out the most accurate number of links pointing to a site?

    With both of the above mentioned sites I've entered in sites and seen "5000 backlinks", yet when I put it into traffic travis I see 80,000 links for the same site. The only problem is that TT doesn't have and detailed information on the links. Does anyone know where TT gets it's backlink information from?

    In the end, it really only matters what google shows for link:domain.com

    I believe Traffic Travis gets their backlinks from Majestic SEO, not 100% sure though

    I tried backlinkwatch.com, but not sure how updated their info is. When I checked some of the URLs in their report, many of them went to empty sites, or the link that they said was there was not.
