    Google Link: Don't Use it
    Yahoo Site Explorer: Only Shows 1000 Links, but not accurate IMO

    Never use the other ones

    I was using Backlinks Checker Tool - Backlink Watch and Free Backlink Checker, Free Link Check Tool

    Will give Advanced Link Manager a shot!

    Thanks

    I think those two are just front-ends to Yahoo Site Explorer.
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory

    I was mucking around with these (and burning a fair amount of time), but did not see a difference when compared to submitting to RSS aggregator's and other parasitic sites that did better.
    For the time I was burning on them, I now devote to research or other content creation.
    Cheers,
    James

    I constantly see tons of people offering directory submissions. How do you guys know that maybe half of the sites they use, have been used for submitting your links.

    Scenario

    Day 1: I submit my site to 500 directories.

    Day 2: I see someone offering 1000 directory submissions, and I buy in. What happens when their list contains the 500 directories from my submissions on Day 1? Wouldn't it be a waste of money?

    Ask the second guy for a list. Import the report from the 1st guy and list from the 2nd guy into MS Access. Run a query and add both tables. Create a relation and run. This will provide to you a realtional database so you will see how many of the directories are uniqe to the second list.

    Thanks for the reply.

    The issue is, many of the people would not give out there list, because they think we are going to use it to make money

    it depends on directory to which you submit .. if look at DMOZ they don't approve any site like other directories thats why Dmoz backlink is important..so try to submit your links to only few important and clean directories

    Good luck

    Since most directories lost their internal PR, and rank very low for their categories, it would not provide a huge help.

    A few years ago, categories of trusted quality directories ranked high and provided traffic. Now these days, not a single directory provide traffic even Yahoo directory.

    I use to like directories, perhaps they should create a huge network to avoid to be kicked out from search engines.

    It takes time, and I don't always have time to do that. I need a virtual assistant , got so much to do in little time.
