    I regulary check backlinks of my website and they are always different on these tools, Opensiteexplorer shows less links than Backlinkwatch. I tried some other web tools for backlinks checking, and they also show different results.

    How these tools work, what's the catch? Where do I get most accurate results for my backlinks?

    OpensiteExplorer.com updates itself in certain dates that why.

    I personally use Ahrefs.com as they usually find backlinks very fast and accurately.

    Majestic is good too and has a different database from ahrefs and moz

    Though basically all those added up are still only a % of what Google (and Bing and Yahoo) has indexed

    You'll get the most accurate results from combining all the various BL tools: ahrefs, Majestic, OSE, WebMeUp, etc.

    Ahrefs is still the top site explorer. I don't really like the moz products.....

    Ahrefs blows OSE completely out of the water. They constantly update their index and they simply have a larger database.
