    I used to use Yahoo, probably just like everyone else, I've now moved onto MajesticSEO but was wondering if there are any better alternatives? I know there's SEO SpyGlass and the likes but what's most accurate? So what do you all use?

    I have not found the perfect system yet.

    How do you like Majestic SEO compared to OpenSiteExplorere?

    nothing I find seems to crawl/find links very deeply.

    Code:
    http://yourdomain.com/something
    i got backlinks for all the pages of domain instead of just getting backlinks for
    Code:
    http://yourdomain.com/something

    SEO Spyglass is not as good as before YSE shut down.

    Either Ahrefs/Majestic will work.

    these are superb, they have a trial version where you get 100 backlinks, if you get full version you get 10,000

    everything is laid out with PR etc well worth it

    Why not use multiple tools? No one tool is 100% accurate, use Traffic Travis, SEO Spyglass, and Open site explorer. Compare metrics. You can never have too much information in competition analysis.
