    Hi Anirudh,

    Thanks for the list. I normally use OpenSiteExplorer, BacklinkWatch and SEO Spyglass.

  2. Hi Anirudh, that’s really a great list of tools that can be used to check incoming backlinks of a site. However, I use only one of them i.e. Open Site Explorer, which I guess is the best one.

    Anirudh, I read your article.. its been a while I have read someone article.. by Reading I had two question in my mind.. Why you having concentrate only with “Dofollow”… I hope you must be know it doesn’t matter.

    Try to have links from Nofollow but from authority and have see your rankings goes up. Although many other link building methods work..

    I use ahrefs, Majestic, opensite explorar, semrush and seo spyglass tool. uh sometime scrapebox work best for me…

      Hi Dear Anirudh
      I Think Open Site Explorer is The Best One. What you Think ?

        It depends. I got OSE Premium, and it rocks! But, I’d choose ahrefs over OSE. Thanks for your comment 🙂
