What is the best way to collect all backlinks?
I want to collect all the backlinks to my site to go through and discover the bad ones. Google Webmaster tools/console only has a small portion. What is the best method to obtain all backlinks of my site for review?

You'll have to use multiple sources, not just one. Google webmaster tools only has the latest ones found and is not a complete reference. I'd suggest signing up for several link crawling companies and combining all of their links together. Here are some:
And any others you can find. Use the list from GWTs as well.

Like said above Majestic, Ahrefs, and Moz are defnitely the top dogs in this field.
Here are a few that aren't as well known:
Both of these are free to a certain point just like Majestic, Ahrefs and Moz. But if you have under 1,000 links then these will be a great addition to your webmaster toolbox

Well the first thing to do is do it manually in Google search results using the minus site operator of
This will show you all the results where your site is indexed to but none of your actual site results. So for instance, if I wanted to see how many sites there are that are linking to seoclerks.com for example (whether they be hyperlinked URLs or just citations) I would use;
Of course, seoclerks.com also has seoclerk.com so for that you would want to minus out both sites from showing in the results but also tell it to search for and show all results from the other domain too with this operator;
-site:seoclerks.com -site: seoclerk.com "seoclerks.com" + "seoclerk.com"
That tells it to find all results showing for both seoclerks.com and seoclerk.com but minus out those sites from the results. Just apply the same method using your own sites domain name. That only applies for Google though. The search operators to use for Bing/Yahoo are a little different. You can search for "bing and yahoo search operators or they do provide an Advanced Search Form here:
but its still not as comprehensive as say the Google Advanced Search Form:
The above mentioned crawlers can help as well. But there are literally so many backlink count site out there now that can do the job just as well as any paid service can. Just do a Google search for "how to find my backlinks" and you'll find many free services that will be more than adequate in finding them.
But one tool I can definitely
. I've been an owner/user of ScrapeBox for the past 5 years now. It was one of the first tools I ever purchased because it is so flexible and has a lot of features for webmasters. One of them is the Link Harvester and the Backlink Checker which literally enables you to download up to 1000 backlinks for a URL or a domain for analysic. The backlinks are ordered from highest to lowest for you by MozRank and can be exported as a text file, csv etc provided you set up a free Moz API and provided you own a copy of ScrapeBox that is.
I hope this is insightful for you!

I think I will have a headache in gathering all the backlinks of a site. What if there are thousands of backlinks that you have scattered in the legal way, how can you evaluate each and every one of those backlinks? By the way, how do you remove a bad backlink that is posted on a site?
