AFAIK, YSE is the top source for back link checkers in the world today, it would be nice if folk encourage them to continue
The bing tool was better than Googles, but would only show you your own links

Now I can understand why Japan's Yahoo Site Explorer was down & in maintenance mode for 1 full week.

|We want webmasters to know that the Yahoo! Site Explorer team is planning tighter integration between Site Explorer and Bing Webmaster Center to make the transition as smooth as possible. The information that you provide about your website and its structure using Yahoo! Site Explorer has been extremely useful in helping us maintain the freshness and relevancy of our search results, and as you know, it helps ensure that your website gets great search traffic. |
Frankly, this sounds ominous to me. Bing's keyword information is available only through Bing Webmaster Tools, and it's limited to the site you're monitoring... "your website".
It would be a shame if Bing similarly limited Site Explorer, but I'm guessing that it might. It's possible to read the article and the FAQ in several different ways.

Ouch, this could be a major blow to competitive link analysis

Microsoft always do something that seems to be sneaky move. If Bing fully take control of Yahoo Site Explorer hopefully they will not do like what happen to Netscape.

I already see no backlink data for websites. This is crazy!

Yahoo site explorer is being closed.
