Here is the list of tools I use to help
Ahrefs – this is good I used it a lot – it is frustrating though as it picks up some links fast and others months later, so if you are actively building links it is hard to track the overall.
Moz – Open site explorer – has a great reputation and its concepts of DA, PA and Trust flow are widely used in the SEO community – expensive and slow to update however – another frustrating experience.
Open Link Profiler – Free section is better than others and good overall. Has a good list of free sites to build links from
Open Link Profiler – Another report this time for London Equity Release it lists all links it finds with a link back to the link so good for indexing if nothing else.
