Sorry to mention this, but i noticed the no.1 link backlinkwatch is actually pointing back to this website :). I normally prefer using the google link search to analyse backlink. Just have a look and test on the backlinkwatch. A great tool which i think webmaster should have. Thanks David Cheong

Why no mention of Yahoo search exlporer? we all know its the most accurate

These tools are great, but none appear to be able to tell me the location that the backlink is pointing to... Apparently SEO Elite can do this - does anyone have expereince of this product/know of another that can do this?

Recently webmaster link search shows less back link data, if you remember. I would like to share raven tool which shows some exact back-links with Anchor tag.
