Ahrefs

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.

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.

Pros

  • 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.

Cons

  • Anchor text alert notifications for a specific domain would be nice to have.
  • Would also be nice to set a specific client domain and then be able to pick 5 competitor sites to compare it to instead of entering in the client site and then 4 competitors to compare.
  • Adding emails to forward the exports to from running a report would be good too.

  • Sometimes the TF*IDF analysis doesn't make much sense
  • Can be difficult to justify the cost for the value provided

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

Ahrefs7.0

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

There are some similarities, but ultimately, they're different tools. I really like both, but I prefer Ahrefs. Its layout and organization of data works for my workflow the best

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

  • Ahrefs allowed us to build smarter SEM strategies and estimate how we ranked against competitors for web traffic
  • Ahrefs' impact on revenue is difficult to measure because it is one tool in a larger suite. Alone, it does not drive leads but supports the efforts of a team to grow traffic.

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