Best Way To Identify Backlinks

I'm looking for the best tool to identify all backlinks to our site from all sources including the anchor text they are using to link to us and they page they are linking to...

What's the best tool out there for this?

I use Google webmaster and Yahoo but they give different results and Yahoo only gives the first 1000.

There's no real way to get a list of every link pointing to you if you have a lot (over 1,000), because the engines only show 1,000 results.

There are a few different software programs that do that. optilink is one (if it's being sold anymore). They will query the engines for the links they report, then spider the sites to get anchor text and other bits of information.

They work pretty well, but again, you won't get every link simply because the engines don't always return all the links pointing to you.

I think an equally good question would be - how do you find 1000 unique linking domains to your website - and sort them by the highest value down.
