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 covers a website's SEO from head to toe, so anytime you have an SEO audit or want to look for ways to improve your site this is the tool to use. It's even better that this tool is free and is an easy to use Chrome extension.

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.

  • Gives a ton of SEO info in one area. I usually have to use a few different Chrome extensions that show different areas to get the full picture that this tool gives you up front.
  • It gives you info on ways to improve the infrastructure of your website.
  • It's free for the first 100 pages of audit.

Cons

  • URL rating distribution is a bit confusing and not as useful as Domain rating distribution would be. All sites I've reviewed with this tend to have a very poor distribution here.
  • New and lost referring domains links is a bit confusing as well. I've never seen any tool do this chart in a way that makes sense. Dramatic rises and loses tend to send people down the wrong path of investigation. A weighted version (based on DR) would likely be more useful.

  • It doesn't have a sleek or exciting design. It is kinda clunky and not super appealing in color.
  • Due to the drop design it can be hard to read. If they updated the program to be more modern I think it would be used much more frequently.

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.

SEOquake has more information than WooRank, but WooRank has a much easier to read design. Because of this I use WooRank more frequently, because it gives me a better user experience.

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

  • It helps promote a positive return on organic results. I have seen a 5% increase since using the program of organic search results only.
