Backlinks are considered as an important resource for websites and are highly valuable in terms of search engine optimization. However these backlinks can be both useful and harmful depending on the quality of the domains they originate from.
While there are many services on the web to view the backlinks to your site, but none of them allow you to view more than 10 or 20 of them unless you register with them or go for a paid subscription of their service.
Most popular websites usually have more than hundreds of backlinks at minimum. So unless you can get a detailed list of all the backlinks to your site, most web based backlink services will be useless for you.
But did you know that the Google Webmaster Tools can provide you with a detailed list of all the backlinks to your site and a lot more for free? So if you can’t afford a paid subscription to a backlink checking service, you can use the Google webmaster tools instead to check the complete list of all the backlinks to your website.
Here how you can view a complete list of all the backlinks to your site from Google Webmaster Tools.
