Hi, I'm looking to use the search engine optimization toolkit on IIS to find all the inbound links to my site.
So from the dashboard I created a "new link query" where Linking-IsExternal Equals true.
I ran this query and got back some results. However the results were not as comprehensive as I expected.

First of all I have created several site and which in the footer I have referral links back to my site.
I have checked that these are valid but there are quite a few not showing.

Next I have some links from other site that I can see work but are not shown up in the report.

Finally I  often tweet with referring links back to the site, I did so in the belief that these also increase the inbound link list, but they are not shown on the report. (even if shortened)

How do I get a definative list of the inbound links to my site? the IIS SEO toolkit looks quite comprehensive, but I am not that confident in it due to the results above. Or do I need to do something to get the links registered.

When were the links created?, you need to wait for the search engines to crawl the websites where the links exist.  This can take a long time (months or not at all).  To help things along you can submit the sites directly to the search engines or link to those sites yourself so next time the bots crawl your site they get directed to those sites as well to pick up the backward link.

Does this also include twitter and facebook and any shortened links within them. I was led to believe that these count for SEO as well, but cannot see the back links

If the page that you post the link on is visible without logging in/being your friend then I would say yes.   I have a link to my site on my facebook profile and I can see it.  I don't have twitter but presume it will be the same.  Have you tried googleing your site in inverted commas?
