* Technorati.com enables you to do this almost in real time. Output is in the
form of Web pages or RSS feeds
* Try 'link:<your_site_address>' in Yahoo search or Google search. You can
pull results in the form of RSS feeds from both
* Use one of a variety of meta search engines in http://gada.be/ to keep
track of items that identify your site. Many links are included and
delivered in RSS form.
* Look at your referrals logs and try to see what comes up. valuable links
tend to lead actual visitors (traffic) to your site.
I mentioned RSS form quite often because you sought a software tool. Use an
RSS reader (e.g. RSSOwl, Thunderbird or Web-based Feedlounge, Google
Reader...). This means that you will have a comforable environment for
keeping track of this any time, anywhere. You can also aggregate results
form a variety of distinct sources.
Hope this helps,
