Ahrefs has great prices for the data they provide. As a freelancer, I know there are cheaper options, but they do not provide the backlink data that Ahrefs provides. As an in-house SEO, I believe that Ahrefs is a must for research. If I had one SEO tool, it would be Ahrefs because it has most SEO tools all in its suite.

Pros

Ahrefs

  • Their backlink database is still one of the most up to date we've seen when compared to similar tools.
  • The user interface is very intuitive and easy to learn.
  • They provide you with a lot of great information and the ability to set a date range can really help you narrow things down.

Bing Webmaster Tools

  • Clarity. Bing Webmaster Tools is well-designed and easy to navigate, even for beginners.
  • Keyword rankings. Gives more visibility than Google Search Console into how your website ranks for specific keywords.
  • In-program SEO editing. Allows you to submit URLs, disavow links, block URLs, control BingBot's crawl, and more.

Cons

Ahrefs

  • Ahrefs Site Explorer provides an overview of domain health and the issues that can be fixed, and sometimes the suggested "critical issues" can be an astronomical number and not accurate.
  • For certain features on Ahrefs Site Explorer, there can a more elaborate description/guide on how to utilize the feature.

Bing Webmaster Tools

  • The user-interface isn't as friendly or appealing as Google's - very bland overall.
  • The way they present their Page Traffic report is a big turn-off. It's basically just a grid of numbers and arrows which is hard to interpret at a high level.

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

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.

Ahrefs has always been responsive when there's been a technical issue with the site. There are usually very little problems, but if there are, they announce it on their social media accounts which keeps its customers informed. Email support is prompt and the customer service people are very helpful, knowledgable and friendly.

The support for Bing Webmaster Tools is responsive and very helpful. They have a "help" section for all frequently asked questions along with phone/email support. I would recommend that they add a chat support feature to assist with questions/issues that the user may experience. Screen share and chat support are my recommendations.

Ahrefs Site Explorer gives us an easier way of obtaining backlinks when we're doing link building, whereas with other products I have a more difficult time finding viable backlinks. The keyword list you can export from Ahrefs is also a lot more clear than in other products making it easier for me to read and our clients to understand.

Bing Webmaster Tools

I think that Bing does a good job of being a competitive product in a space that has very basic and insanely complex products. While Bing isn't pretty, it gets the job done and also gets you the right tools in a simple and straight forward backend UI. The ability to place Bing ads, track SEO and see how your site is performing, all from one backend interface is awesome!

Return on Investment

Ahrefs

  • We can help sales by providing them with info on potential sites' areas that need boosting.
  • We can help sales by providing them with info on competing sites and how they are beating our potential client, and how we can help them.

Bing Webmaster Tools

  • Not really an ROI product but the ability to do more tasks than google is something that can be used as added value for clients
  • Having another search engine to do reporting on helps increase hours and client spend
  • some issues flagged in bing but not seen in google can be fixed once shown in BWT
