    If you're a FireFox user, install SEOQuake plug-in.

    I personally think SEO quake is too busy and distracting. I like backlinkwatch.com

    All good services but none really give you the "true" backlink counts!

    You can also use "yahoo site explorer" which gives you a better backlink count but still not the full amount and only allows you to see the first 1k!

    If not then there is always my service :p (see sig) but i really only recommend it if your competition shows more than 1k backlinks in yahoo site explorer or else it is most likely to be a waste of your money.

    Well I use spyglass and it pulls from all the search engines. Been using it for quite awhile now and it works pretty well.

    Another vote for spyglass, but just because I have it - i think as long as you use the same program/service for you and your competitiors all the time at least it gives you something to compare.

    the spyglass trial doesn't allow you to save projects, and I think saving is the most useful part because you can see any spikes/jumps in your competitiors counts easier.

    That only works with your own website! And the real power is finding other sites backlinks not your own (as after all you probably created most of them anyway).
