    You can try backlinkwatch, but sometimes it is not very reliable. I also use the free versions of opensiteexplorer and ahrefs.com. The last 2 show more detailed information which is very helpful.

    No mention of SEO Spyglass? Really?

    It's my favorite SEO tool of all time and tells you most of what you need to know about any site's backlink profile. That and OSE are my one-two punch.
