    That site is alright but i remember in the past there were times it would not give backlink info. i think because the site was overloaded or something

    YSE is gone. A couple of days already. Search the forum, as there have been discussions about it shutting down.

    "With the completion of algorithmic transition to Bing, Yahoo! Search has merged Site Explorer into Bing Webmaster Tools. Webmasters should now be using the Bing Webmaster Tools to ensure that their websites continue to get high quality organic search traffic from Bing and Yahoo!."

    baclinkwatch sucks. webmaster tools even shows like 1.5k links and blw shows 0... remember I used it before and it sucked too... you can try free seomajestic account for a first glance I guess but for more you have to pay. looking for an alternative myself.

    Yep, I noticed this a few days ago also. Kinda stinks because it really was a simple way to track down high PR blogs to comment on.
