    Hey guys, I've searched the forums and can't seem to find an answer to this. I may have passed over something idk. But basically I want to try and check my backlinks for my site but all the sites I've gone to have way different numbers. I've tried YSE Majesticseo and other sites. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    You'll be seeing different numbers because - frankly, every service use it's method of checking / displaying / counting backlinks. Until now the most accurate way to check the count of your backlinks was by going to

    Code:
    https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/search?p=[YOUR_URL_HERE]
    but lately a lot of tools have emerged, such as:
    1. MajesticSEO
    2. OpenSiteExplorer

    If you want to check the links (indexed in Google) for your main domain, just visit Google and type this in the search box:

    Code:
    link: your_url
    Hope this shed some light.
