    Hi Guys

    I used to use yahoo site explorer, but that seems to have gone!!

    What are you guys using now?

    Are there any free backlink checkers that check inner pages not just the home page for indexed backlinks?

    Thanks, Mark

    There are other sites like blekko as well but they mostly don't show enough data. The 3 most accurate search tools right now are these ones.

    Code:
    majesticseo.com
    ahrefs.com
    opensiteexplorer.org

    I found Majestic SEO and seo power suit (if that is seo spyglass) doesn't check inner pages??

    yahoo site did!

    I've just installed Traffic Travis I didn't know it was free, going to have a look at what this can do!

    This is true, majesticSEO uses a fresh index just like yahoo site explorer did. It may cost £30 a month but for some people it is a necessary tool now that YSE is gone.

    Open site explorer is also good but it's index can go upto 6 weeks without updating.

    I use Open Site Explorer to check, mostly because I have an SEOMoz PRO subscription. I also use MajesticSEO and Blekko if necessary

    - yes, SEO SpyGlass is part of SEO PowerSuite tookit (with also has a Rank Tracker, an onpage SEO tool called WebSite Auditor and a linkbuilding tool called LinkAssistant)

    - yes, SEO PowerSuite does check inner pages if by that you mean if it checks backlinks beyond home page. again, yes, it does

    here is a pretty new BHW thread discussing new backlink database in SEO SpyGlass http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...zation-spyglass-new-huge-backlink-source.html

    my main tool for checking backlinks is ahrefs, it even gives you more data than yahoo site exployer if you use it right, such as the ability to see anchor text.

    I havent used market samurai since they discontinued yahoo site exployer.. does anyone know where they get backlinks now?

    I use SEO SpyGlass now and I have MagesticSEO as well. I am not sure which one I like better yet as I just bought SpyGlass. Seems like a pretty powerful tool from what I have done already.
