If you want to monitor your backlinks in almost real time, Ahrefs is the tool you need. They update their index faster than any other service I have seen, so if you are actively building link through content marketing other tactics, it will be nice to see what links show up naturally from your efforts. If you are looking for the best solution for cleanse a backlink profile, there are better tools out there specializing in those efforts

SEO PowerSuite

The software is not quite suitable for e-commerce, yet is powerful for gaining organic results.

Cons

  • Sometimes the index does not pick up current live links for a long time.
  • The cap for data exports is pretty low considering the vastness of a link profile.
  • There should be a feature where you can classify link types by your own parameters.

  • Runs on your computer under Java so it's not fast.
  • Uses too much system memory and can slow down your computer significantly.
  • Doesn't have a vast link index, like Ahrefs or SEMrush...

Likelihood to Renew

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.

I gave SEO PowerSuite a two because our company did not renew our subscription. The pricing was too complicated and having multiple platforms made it more difficult to use. We dropped our subscription to SEO PowerSuite and implemented Moz. Moz gave us a full view of all of the metrics we were looking for on one web-based platform. Plus, the pricing model was simple so it was easier to get senior management to cosign on.

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

Each of these tools has advantages over the other. Ahrefs link counts are often considerably higher than Moz or Majestic, which could be indicative of a larger web index or inaccuracy in filtering old links. Ultimately, we use all of these tools to be able to take advantage of the different proprietary analysis modules that they each offer.

SEO PowerSuite is a unique SEO software because it runs on your computer. Unlike Ahrefs or Moz, which run as SaS, this tool depends on your computer resources to crawl and gather data from the websites which can be a good thing, because your business lives on your computer. This can also be a negative thing because Google sometimes show their "captcha" since they recognize your machine as a crawler.PowerSuite recently improved their SEO SpyGlass' link index and now compete with the big dogs, such as Moz and Ahrefs and SEMrush, but not Majestic.They require you to pay a monthly fee for their "algo updates" which increases the cost of their "one time payment" marketing model.

Return on Investment

  • Ahrefs makes me able to perform my work faster and more comprehensively than other tools.
  • Ahrefs allows me to stop using tools that I would otherwise have to spend money on e.g. Majestic

  • SEO PowerSuite is a one-time payment SEO software which shortens the time it takes for you to optimize websites in terms of SEO, content, visibility and conversions which can improve your ROI if used wisely.
  • Can be used on multiple platforms and scales nicely. An Enterprise license allows multiple people to run the software, and it's easy to set up. It's updated regularly which means zero maintenance.
  • BuzzBundle and LinkAssistant can increase your brands reach, potentially increasing the number of prospects and leads.
