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

I highly recommend SambaSaaS to businesses managing multiple websites and social media accounts. I also recommend it for entrepreneurs who need to manage international branches and international clients

This includes graphical reports and tables for top #1 listing, top 5 rising keywords and newly listed keywords.

Cons

  • UI is sometimes a little imposing and difficult to navigate
  • Many products and very little onboarding on how to use them
Tom Davies profile photo
  • It has a lot of features. So, it's kind of difficult to get started and to learn every feature in the software. However, once you get used to SambaSaaS, it's fairly easy to navigate.

Ahrefs recently became more expensive. While they offer a large web index of backlinks, some of the modules of analysis available in similar tools make them a better value in many respects. Ahrefs continues to update their interface, but the accuracy of link counts and new/lost data modules calls into question the validity of the provided information.

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

Generally these two products offer the same features, but Ahrefs updates far faster meaning their metrics are more relevant.

Both Infusionsoft and SambaSaaS are popular email marketing tools. However, I chose SambaSaaS because it helped me manage multiple websites, social media accounts and create SEO-friendly landing pages

Return on Investment

  • Positive Impact: You can't effectively build links unless you can see their impact, measure results and modify based on experience. Through link building you can make site increase in search engines. If you're in the SEO business its hard to get by without a link building tool
  • Negative: Fairly expensive on a user by user basis

  • It helped me automate my email marketing campaigns, so that I could generate more leads for my business.
