    SEO Spyglass rocks for that. I've tested it against SEO Elite and Market Samurai...it stacked like this roughly:

    SEO Spyglass brought back 4k + backlinks
    Market Samurai brought back 1k backlinks
    SEO Elite brought back 500 backlinks

    Hope this helps.

    PS I hear IBP is ok, but personally when I looked at it I couldn't stand the iface and heard it may be close or comparable to Spyglass, I'd love to run a test against that versus my other data.

    If you want quick answers, you can also use yahoo site explorer. However, you won't know if they are ******** or not.

    i appreciate all of your comments very much.
    could some one please elaborate on how to sort out backlinks of competitors using spyglass?

    I used site explorer and backlinkwatch.com but in bigger sites it comes up with a lot of industry/vender specific backlinks that i can't use. what is the tactic to sort out useable links and build to compete>?
