Along with backlinks, checking your competitors keywords is also a good idea
Try spyfu for that, it is great but paid, then free is not always great
for backlinks, backlinkwatch or some other desktop softwares like linkassistant is also good, they have improved functionalities like emailing the webmasters of those websites where your competitor has a backlink and even the ability to manage the links resource pages etc.

thanks for those links, I'll be sure to check them out. Another cool tool for competitor investigations is http://www.my-ip-neighbors.com/ which helps you find all the sites hosted on a particular server. If you're competitor is on a dedicated, that's all his sites right there.  :o

This is nice I could spend all day on this backlink checker.  I would like to mention though not everything is backlinks sometimes these are spammy and actually hurt search engine results!

Agree.
They say that Google shows only most important links (link:somedomain.com).
I do not know if it is true.

I think the yahoo site explorer is the best option for this. Just put the URL of the competitor's site in the search string and you will get the whole list of the sites where your competitor had made submissions. :)

Hey, while we are on the subject... does anyone know of a full analysis tool that will tell me the Titles and internal link structure of a domain?

I want to see  how my competitors sites are constructed.?

There are many tools avaolable for the same. You can try spyfu. Google and yahoo search engines are also good for checking backlinks of any site including your competitior. Simply write link: url of site in the search box

I would prefer SEOmoz's tools set- especially "open site explorer" for that matter.
Some of my colleague will argue that MajesticSEO is more accurate and shows newer links.
