    Open link Profiler is one of the favorite SEO tool for many. Open link profiler has the large database of freshest backlinks to a site.

    It depends! Do you want to check backlinks for your website? Or competitors website? If you want to check your website's backlink then google webmaster & bing webmaster is enough for that. But you want to check your competitors you can use SEMRush, moz, seo spy glass, ahref, open link explorer. Further question? Please ask!

      Correct, SEO SpyGlass from SEO PowerSuite has a free version as a tester and paid ones with wider range of features. Moreover it has a pretty fast crawler, integration with GA and Google Search Console and it allows improting any backlinks manually. The best is that you can check the presence and status of any backlinks in real time and then analyze the other factors for existing ones only.

    Mietmeerut,

    Most of the free backlink checker tools are giving to all possible backlinks earlier and present you have acquired, If you check manually some of the backlinks are not available either it may broken or domain expired and your incoming links are not available etc. If you need to verify your website live backlinks, I would recommend you ahrefs, Since It has a paid tool. But It will segregate the backlink status like dofollow, nofollow, lost links, new links, .edu links, .gov links, .org links etc. Depends on your requirement you can choose the right tool. Google Search Console also giving the backlinks details.

    SEMRush, Ahrefs or Majestic are the most accurate, so I'd use any one of them.

    Ahrefs has a massive database of links, so you'll find a lot more links and better metrics.

    I've tried Moz (numerous times) but find it doesn't provide enough information. Not for backlinks anyway.

    I'm currently using SEMRush as it's a brillaint all rounder. You can audit your site for backlinks and technical SEO issues, monitor yours and your competitors rankings and it even gives you suggestions on how to improve individual pages.

    Check out the links below to get a free 30 day trial of SEMRush:

    Lot of backlink checker tools in online but some tools only show the whole backlinks, if you choose free backlink checker tools it shows less amount of backlinks only, if you use paid sites it shows all backlinks based on your subscription, so my suggestion is "aherf" is the best for backlink checking i used this it give the best results

    There are so many Backlink Checker tools available online. You can search and find online. But according to me, I thinks these following 4 of them are best for checking back-links online.

    1. Backlinkwatch,
    2. Moz Open Site Explorer,
    3. Webseoanalytics Backlink Checker
    4. Aherf
    I used these sites for checking competitor's link analysis for finding competitor's back-links online. I hope this will help you too.

    There are many free online backlink checker websites that can help you to check the number of backlinks to your blog or website.

    Here is I would like to suggest you a best tool "Ahrefs" in which you can analyze "Do follow" or "No Follow" back link for your website.

    With a free 14-day trial, you have nothing to lose by taking a closer look at this link checker tool and its variety of features.

    In addition to the total number of backlinks, you can review each one to ensure that you’re satisfied with the quality.

    As you’ll see in this post, there are many link checker tools designed to help you better understand your link profile. However, I have long considered Ahrefs to be among the best.

    There are different backlink checker tool. But the result is not same all the tools.
    You can use Ahrefs or Semrush. I think Ahrefs is really effective for backlink issue. SEMRush is the best SEO tool both competitors analysis and Keywords research.
    You can also use Google Webmaster Tools, Open site explorer, Open Link Profiler and more.

    Thumbs up for the integration with other sources like GA and GSC, in-built disavow file generator and for checking all the data in real-time (what I always missed in any other tools). Also, unlike most of the tools allows adding any backlinks manually, and that`s always a pain to wait for any crawler to recognize the links that were just built.
