Here is another backlink checker. It's pretty good but won't work once in a while. Not sure why.

There are cases where it's the search engines which choose not to show the backlinks, and that's why a tool can not retrieve them.

You can also try the link command in google search. Type in link:www.yourdomain.com (replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name) and click search.
On top of that, if you submitted your site to google webmaster, then you can check backlinks through google webmaster tools.

You can try the Affilorama SEO Toolbar for Firefox. Not only does it tell you about backlinks; it also retrieves a webpage's PageRank, Alexa Traffic, Compete Traffic Rank, among other things.
Go to http://www.affilorama.com/seo-toolbar for more information.

My two favorite backlink checkers are majesticseo.com and ahrefs.com

Even their free services provide a lot of information. You just have to register to use them.

As this thread went alive, let me share a fresh and huge backlink index which is completely free at the moment: http://webmeup.com/tools/backlinks.html
While the index is being currently updated, it already showed me some links ahrefs didn't see.

Many are not too reliable, it is not really esy to get a truly database of the backlinks.

I used backlink.com but I don't know if they are all shown.
