Likelihood to Recommend

Ahrefs Site Explorer is extremely suitable for any kind of backlink or content analysis in which one wants to get a comprehensive overview of what a website's backlink profile looks like or what a website's top content is. I wouldn't necessarily recommend Ahrefs Site Explorer for keyword tracking because I think there are more efficient tools for that

It is great if your SEO team is young and getting to learn different tools. Or if you don't have access to programmers easily, to crawl and collect some data for you.

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

I like these other softwares too. If you work in an agency you will likely have uses for many different platforms. I do like the way that ahrefs indexes and tracks links more than anything else I have used though. I think it is very effective with competitive research as well

We started using OnPage.org as it was highly recommended by some consultants. Although after using it for few months, we realized that it has very limited "exclusive" information that only this tool can provide.

Return on Investment

  • Positive: Helped me track total links for clients and show them that we were building more links, which helped them want to renew and gave us more revenue.
  • Positive: Same with keyword rankings. Helped prove agency value.
  • Negative. It was too expensive for the start up I worked for, based on the SEO progress we could make vs the cost of the software

  • It can be hard to justify the costs Vs returns, specially if you have most of the data available via other tools
