Which BackLink Checking Tool Most Closely Reflects Google Results?

I know there are a lot of good tools and programs for checking backlinks. The problem is, they all seem to give different results - even for the same page. But, if I'm looking to improve my SERP standing, it would seem to me that the ones I would want to know about would be the one's Google has, sees, counts, indexes, or whatever. I can see some of the links in Webmaster Tools.

Does anyone have any idea which backlink checker shows the links that Google recognizes, or closest to it?

Thanks

    Hah, Google Webmaster Tools, of course! It will show you the exact links that Google sees, and LOTS of other useful information! If you have a website, Google Webmaster Tools is a must have

      Google webmaster tools is in no way a reliable source for backlink checking. They will not show the right number of backlinks.

      Backlinkwatch.com is a tool that I use and is a pretty reliable source.

      You're not gonna find a tool that gives close approximates to google's crawlers. No other company has the appropriate knowledge and/or resources to supply you with data similar to google.

          I came across a really good article just about that on rankabove (Backlink Data). Definitely read that! Personally I'd go with ahrefs, but OSE is a really good option to with a lot of other info you might want to check, so it really depends on what you want to use it for and the info you want to check!

    There are Several Tools which are pretty much accurate for determining the relevancy of Links! Like Open Site Explorer, Back Link Watch & Google Webmaster Tools!!

    Since Yahoo Site Explorer disappeared, there's actually no accurate tool, at least a free one. The most reliable ones I have tested are Open Site Explorer and Majestic Seo, but still not as good as YSE used to be. One which might be worth trying is the paid version of Seo Spyglass.

    Majestic seo is the one that shows most links compared to the other tools.

    As we mainly depend on Google so Google Webmaster tool would be the right option.

    Try www(.)domain-pop(.)com/ this tool. I use this tool to check up my backlinks. The best way to identify your backlinks which are valued by Google is by checking your links in webmaster tools.
