Ahrefs

This is a very comprehensive tool in terms of ability and information it provides. While it won't give you every link a site has, it will give you most of them and will provide you with the most up to date link information for any site compared to all of the other link crawl providers.

SeoSamba for Wordpress Enterprise

The more pages you have, the better, if you choose SeoSamba. For us, it exceeds our needs as we're not fans of excess numbers of pages just to have a lot of pages. We find that distracting as the people "living" on a website either aren't finding anything compelling or are there to learn something, not to take any real action.The best scenario to use SeoSamba in is when you want to prioritize your creative team's time to create, and not to simply do a lot of maintenance of your site(s).

Pros

Ahrefs

  • 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.

SeoSamba for Wordpress Enterprise

  • Automates multisite SEO, so we can stay focused on great content that attracts the right audience for our two entirely different strategic business units.
  • Eliminates the surprises we used to get with other plugins when Wordpress makes unannounced changes that crash other plugins.
  • Agile, easy to use, and saves hours of time and creative resources
  • Automates metric capture: site analytics, keyword/phrase capture, search engine page results etc...in an online dashboard (and it's free).

Cons

Ahrefs

  • 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.

  • There's a lot more capacity to this product than we need right now, but it's also free so we'll grow into it. You do have to pay close attention to the metrics and adapt accordingly, which is the reason behind creating an inbound marketing model anyway. Just choose the metrics that matter most to you, and I do encourage you to do a lot more A/B testing than you might have with another plug-in.

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

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

Ahrefs

I've used Moz in the past, and while it's simpler and easier to use for an unseasoned SEO person, it's also not as powerful as Ahrefs. If you already had a good idea of what you're doing, you're going to find that Ahrefs is much more useful than Moz. Moz is somewhat more affordable.SEMRush is more comparable to Ahrefs, depending on what you need. SEMRush falls short on backlinks and indexing, so Ahrefs is where it's at if that's what you need most. SEMRush also had some data accuracy issues in the past, and I wouldn't trust their info as much as I do Ahrefs'.

Prior to SeoSamba we were making manual changes. Then we started researching several possible other plugins but the reviews all said the same - that if WP made significant enough changes those plugins would become ineffective. SeoSamba's ability to automate optimization and keep up with/stay ahead of those changes was the deciding factor for us.

Return on Investment

Ahrefs

  • Ahrefs has allowed me to create content sections which have become very valuable to our site
  • Ahrefs allows me to review other websites to discover strategies that have worked for competitors
  • We have been able to track our link building progress on influencer campaigns.

SeoSamba for Wordpress Enterprise

  • Extremely positive ROI as it saved us a lot of very expensive creative time and other associated resources.
  • Positive impact was immediate as we were immediately aware of where our sites could be much better optimized and we are able to A/B test very quickly, and take immediate action on those results.
  • Remember, the #1 objective to metrics is to understand the behaviors they represent. Simply capturing reporting isn't good enough. Test, measure, analyze....rinse and repeat.
