    What is wrong with yahoo site explorer.I know they are shutting down but lately they are not indexing links. I saw my comp has a handful of links on yse but when i check majesticseo they have 5000. So is it good just to ignore yse altogether now?

    What are free alternatives to check your backlinks besides g analytics

    Probably yahoo isn't indexing new links because of future shutdown. My links are even going down in YSE.

    Alternatively, you can use opensiteexplorer, ahrefs, majesticseo

    Yup, YSE is dying.

    My backlinks count over there is decreasing, while on majestic I see nothing but increase. :)

    Don't bother about YSE, do your SEO, index your links and monitor the serps. That's all.
    If you want to see your progress, you can use ahrefs graphs to have an idea.

    thats why I can only get one link to show in Spyglass for a new site thats top ten for almost all of its keywords..............it all makes sense now.

    I would expect that Yahoo could turn this off at any time now.

    Also if you try "link:yourwebsite.com" you will see few or no results. Previously this used to work for getting your competitors backlinks. YSE sucks.
