It is a fact that over 90% the web sites out there do not allow dofollow links to be added by visitors. While I am frustrated with the lack of good places to add dofollow links to my site, I am also curious about where my competitors get their backlinks.

Is there a good tool or method to find out where the backlinks of my competitors are? So I can at least find out some of the good places and add my own backlinks. :)

Any good answer is appreciated! Thanks!

I use software called TrafficTravis. I have the professional version which is very good. I started off with the free version which is quite good as well. There is another free tool known as backlinkwatch. I haven't tried it so I can't tell you much about results.

There are some options which require a bit of investment to get details. Trial versions of Ahrefs and MajesticSEO are available. These are professional online services producing accurate competitor analysis. Another tested online tool is OpenSiteExplorer.

MajesticSeo it's definitely my favourite backlink checker, it will not only show you backlinks but they're category, time when they got indexed (or removed). I've tested premium version of Ahrefs, MajesticSeo, SeoMoz and SEO Spyglass and yeah... the winner is really clear to me.

I think you should use sites like backlinkwatch, SemRush, and seoprofiler. Although I am not a very big fan of Semrush in some other utilities, but I must say that it works fantastic here!

With SEMRush & Ahrefs you can not just check the competitors backlinks only, you can also do keyword and content gap analysis. This gives you a detailed insights of additional opportunities to overtake your competitors.
