Top SEO backlink checker tools

I thought I would list the top tools for checking your back-links (inbound) towards your site. With the Google penguin update, checking your back-links on a regular basis is a must.

Majestic SEO Explorer Tool

https://www.majesticseo.com/

Maybe one of the most comprehensive of public available data. I recommend registering for free to make the most out of this tool. For your own domain or ones you control you can create advanced reports with a larger amount of data.

Columns of the report include: Title and URL of linking page, Link anchor text, if the link is No-follow o not and the date (I assume the last crawl date)
