Locating links on large sites

How do I find the page that's linking to my site?

I was looking at my links in webmaster tools and noticed a few from some larger sites. I'd like to see what they're saying about my site but WT only shows acme.com, instead of the actual page. Is there a way to find out exactly which page on the domain has my link?

The WMT interface seems to have changed (again) but if I go to 'Links To Your Site' tab for my site, then click on 'More' to see a full list of linking sites, click on the site I'm interested in, I see a list of pages on my site that the linking site points to.

Now if I click a page from my site, I drill down into a list of pages from the linking site that link to that page on my site.

I hope that makes sense! It's possibly the ultimate drill down!

Aagh, I wasn't doing the last click so was just seeing a list of my pages. Thanks for helping a bonehead out John!

No worries sdguy, glad I could be of help.

Phranque's suggestion of site explorer is worth checking out too. I'm sure neither tool picks up all your backlinks, one may miss links the other detects.
