It just does the most important tasks better than anyone else.

RankWatch

RankWatch has helped me a lot with tracking local and mobile rankings for my site. The
best thing about RankWatch is that I can access all my marketing data in one
consolidated dashboard.

Pros

  • Backlinks reporting and analysis: does this at least as well as, and probably better than, Majestic.
  • Linking domains reporting and analysis: does this better than Majestic.
  • Keyword research: powerful and insightful tools for analyzing and selecting keywords for marketing campaigns.

Cons

  • Ahrefs does not have a feature similar to the Topical tagging in Majestic. Adding that would be a big improvement.
  • Pricing: Ahrefs is just plain *expensive* compared to competing products.

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

Actually, I still use SEMRush and BrightLocal. Majestic, though, just didn't compare and certainly didn't have all the features that Ahrefs offers.

We chose Rankwatch because it is very affordable tool and great for almost any skill level. These guys do great work!

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.
