    Many tools can do this - but a quick way is to go to Yahoo and type

    link:

    right before the url you want to check and you will see the backlinks that Yahoo knows about. You can do the same in Goog, but it's useless.

    As for getting the same backlinks, that depends in the nature of the backlinks of you competitors site. If they're all from Web 2.0 properties then it's easy. If they're proper bl's that they have earned through being relevant, authoritative and trustworthy then you'll just have to creat your own links on different sites using the usual bl methods (SENuke, Xrumer etc)

    You can use my service (see sig)

    Or if not rely on "yahoo site explorer" to give you a kinda rough estimate on their backlinks however it still doesn't show all of them and even more annoying you can only actually see the first 1k.

    Use the custom footprint and scrape all the url's (pages) of the site using the site: operator in the custom footprint box.

    Then scrape the backlinks!

    Main problem still with this is you only get 1k per url! Because they use the indexed backlinks in yahoo site explorer and even adding google and bing to the box gives you roughly the same amount (as the show even less).
