    Since Yahoo site explorer is shutting down it's service, I'm looking for a good alternative to check my backlinks.
    I know majesticseo is a good one, but I would prefer some free service. Can you recommend one please?

    You can try with Bing webmaster tools... Though I have never tried it, so, I am not sure about its accuracy.

    Also, you can try ‘Keyword Country'... Its pretty good tool for checking your own and your competitor's backlinks.

    Thank you both. But backlinkwatch seem to only find very few links. It found 8 links for my page, when even alexa found 274. Bing is unfortunately also showing very few links.
    I'm going to try keyword country now, hopefully that's better. Otherwise I guess I have to pay majesticseo.

    Sites like backlinkwatch are a wank, they deliberately give you poor results because what are they selling on their site ? Backlinks . I believe Google webmaster tools is the best way to check links as these are the only links Google finds credible and thus worthwhile. Why bother looking for links that don't matter ?

    Well, I think there is no more free tool to check backlinks. Most of them have low quality results. And we have to pay to view more links. Also seoglass is still somehow good.
