The search for links is a never ending quest by search engine optimizers, and we can use all the help we can get. Thankfully many talented SEO’s have created helpful tools for link building and analyzing competitor backlinks. Using these tools we can refine the manual process for finding high quality backlinks.

Search here for a keyword, for example search for ‘leather chairs’

Leather-Chairs-Search

Then use each URL and search for sites that link to it. These are good places to find links, as they already link to similar competitors:

Another backlink checking tool developed by an SEO firm is the back link anchor text analysis from SEOmoz.org.

The Yahoo Site Explorer is currently the only major search engine that provides detailed backlink data. Many of the links shown by Yahoo.com are spam links/paid links/scraped links/unrelated links but it is a good public link repository. Also links are shown in descending order of quality, so the links on the first page of Yahoo search results are the most trusted.

Yahoo Site Explorer linkdomain command linkdomain:www.site.com%20-site:www.site.com

Basic Yahoo.com Query:
http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=linkdomain:mysite.com%20-site:www.mysite.com

I love linkbuilding, and with helpful tools like these you can learn to love it as well!
