    The online report is limited to 200 links but if you export to csv it gives many more. You can also do multiple searches by anchor text to get around the limit.

    That's awesome..... Can you do this for any domain? Meaning others than your own?

    I'm hoping that they bring back the old YSE functionality with this tool. I heard that they were gonna do this today but haven't had time to look into it.

    Here is the actual url for pulling the backlinks. Make sure you have a valid cookie aka (signed in to bing)
    Code:
    https://wmstat.bing.com/webmaster/data.ashx?wmkt=en-CA&wlang=en-CA&type=linkexplorer&linkurl=http://www.google.com&url=&anchor=&query=&domain=false&source=1
    
    parameter: linkurl
    is where you would input the website you want to get the links for.

    Enjoy
    Growth

    Finally something free that can check backlinks more accurately. It has been a long wait since yahoo removed their link explorer.

    I logged into webmaster tools, but I don't see the link explorer anywhere. How do you access it?

    Though it does not export more than it shows in Link Explorer for not confirmed domains.

    You cant really say that Microsoft took the idea forward and made it better.
    Alexa shows me more backlinks, and I don't need to bloody login.

    Microsoft is such a failure when it comes to web.

    So.. I have to have a "Live" ID, and then verify my domain, and only THEN can I see the backlinks?

    https://ssl.bing.com/webmaster/diagnostics/link/explorer just redirects me to https://ssl.bing.com/webmaster/home/mysites and "Dashboard" isn't a link until I verify a site. MS seems to have !#@$ when it comes to the web yet again.

    It seems it is only available for Bing webmaster tool's users. It is still in Beta so maybe someday it will become public.
