Ahrefs

This is a very comprehensive tool in terms of ability and information it provides. While it won't give you every link a site has, it will give you most of them and will provide you with the most up to date link information for any site compared to all of the other link crawl providers.

Pros

Ahrefs

  • I love how Ahrefs Site Explorer includes a list of the broken links to a site, the backlinks pointed to these broken links, and the date these broken links are found. It makes identifying quality 404 error pages so much easier, especially when we have the option to download a file with all this information.
  • I love how we can gauge what the top content and top pages are for any website using Ahrefs Site Explorer. Assessing the top content and pages on a website provides insight into what we can do to amp our content strategy.
  • I also like the anchors cloud function on Ahrefs Site Explorer, because it's a clear overview of what anchor texts are most prominent for a given website, and allows us to make adjustments if there's a lack of anchor text variety.

Their index is too vast to ignore when looking at a complete backlink profile. We find links in Ahrefs that do not appear in any other link detection tool. For this reason, it's a must for our agency to use for the foreseeable future. Plus, it's very affordable considering the data you get

Usability

Ahrefs is very easy to use - you can jump right in and understand most of the assets. Overall, the dashboard snapshots give a very good picture of inbound link activity. For deeper analysis of historical trends, the system can become cumbersome, making it hard to do full work without exporting and reformatting the data.
