Free SEO tools

http://tools.seobook.com/ - This SEO tool allows you to analyze all of the links that are pointing to one particular website. Once you download and run it, you are given several reports-one of the reports allows you to see the anchor text of the links that are pointing to that site. Anchor text is the actual clickable link text that describes a link. Search engines rely anchor text information in order to "figure out" what a web page is about-they use that as an important part of their algorithm. This tool requires that you install it on your PC.

http://www.webuildpages.com/tools/ - The Neat-o Backlink Tool, like Aaron Wall's tool mentioned above, "checks your backlinks (only showing one backlink per URL that links to you) and shows the link text used to link to you." This tool is an online tool and doesn't require that you download it.

http://www.urltrends.com/ - allows you to view trend reports of a website's current and previous Google PageRank, Alexa Rank and incoming links for the URL. It also tells you the site's DMOZ status (if it's listed in DMOZ.org).

And ofcourse - I've already noticed them in other threads :

http://www.pagerank.sc - gives u backlinks and future pagerank (and other things ofcourse :> )

http://www.whois.sc - BUT some of its best services are paid ... but even free u can know much things about the site u are looking for (for example how much other sites are hosted on its host which was very courious to me :)
