    As of today Market Samurai isn't using yahoo sitexplorer's data because of unreliability and phasing out of the API.

    They've switched to majestic seo. I'm familiar with opensiteexplorer, yahoo siteexplorer and google webmaster tools data, but don't know anything about the state of the majestic database. How's it spidered, how often, what portion of the web (compared to the others), how reliable and so on it is.

    For example i know that opensiteexplorer tends to show 1/3 to 1/2 of the root domains backlinks google webmaster tools shows. But nothing about majestics.

    So, please do share here everything you now about it and hints, thanks :)

    Majestic to me has always been the most concise. It finds more backlinks than any other tool i've used.

    yes indeed, after further research, it really seems to be the best tool for that out there. Opensiteexplorer for example, has just a fraction of their data.

    The only problem with majestic is that their data isn't updated as frequently as yahoo site explorer was. So with new sites it takes a while for the data to show.

    a lot of people say now that their data is unreliable anymore
