---- Yahoo Site Explorer Closing Down November 21st

I think most people serious about Site Explorer type functionality, especially a service that provides all the data you really need, have already bailed ship to the vastly superior Majestic SEO.
An extremely sad day - particularly as Majestic and the other popular one both are inadequate. Once the yahoo api died it was all over really. Definitely time to invest and start my own crawling, even if I crawled the Alexa top 1m monthly, the data could potentially be far more useful than any other tool I've used.
Being on the highest Majestic package for some time, I can say their data is totally unusable due to the backlink limits as the raw reports counts nonsense backlink data. Amazing since they have so many (almost) free bots doing the work for them, I'm sure their developers have proper access to some useful data and their public service is some sort of inhouse joke.
