Ahrefs

Ahrefs is appropriate to track the technical elements of a site and can compete with Webmaster Tools. If you're looking for an abundance of keyword information on competitors, Ahrefs is not the front runner. Instead, I would check out SpyFu.

Linkody

For the explicit need of managing backlinks, Linkody is a good tool for this use. If you need additional search and website related verification tools, then another tool would be better, such as SEMRush or SpyFu.

Pros

  • Dashboard is very easy to read at a glance and allows us to manipulate data in many different ways to get more insights.
  • Index is fresh (compared to most competitors) and it's easy to see the most recent changes in the number of backlinks, referring domains and see the correlation in the changes of rankings and changes in the backlink profile.
  • Great tool for tracking most popular URLs and understanding reasons of why those pages rank well or bad.

Cons

  • Dashboard could be easier to follow
  • Exports can take forever
  • Social reporting would be awesome

  • The tool is exclusively related to backlinks, so there are not any other features (which we are subscribed) to utilize on the platform.
  • There are periodic crawl errors, so we have occasions with reports filled with hundreds of backlink errors. Commonly these are corrected within a day, but we have to wait to act on the errors because there are so many it is difficult to identify what is a real error and which is a mistake of the Linkody tool.

Usability

Ahrefs7.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

Alternatives Considered

Ahrefs is the oldest of the tools and its index is gigantic in comparison. It also distinguishes between live and historical links which is important for determening the current value of a website.It lacks some of the onsite auditing tools which Serpstat Moz and even SE Ranking have, but it recently added website auditing in its list of features, so it's getting there.For offsite SEO and marketing agencies, Ahrefs is a must-have SEO tool.

Linkody is more limited than SpyFu and SEMRush, as it is specifically related to backlinks management. On the other hand, if that is all you need and on you only have a handful of domains to manage, it is a relatively economical solution.

Return on Investment

  • Increase in value per visit (more targeted traffic).
  • Increase in monthly revenue (average of 20% within 4 months of using Ahrefs) for the majority of our clients.
  • 15% increase in ROI for our business since we started using Ahrefs.

  • Linkody helped tremendously with disavowing uncredible links, which has helped to clean up our domain's reputation.
  • Linkody is a good, centralized way for us to identify changes and new links for competitors websites.
