Ahrefs

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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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 Site Explorer provides an overview of domain health and the issues that can be fixed, and sometimes the suggested "critical issues" can be an astronomical number and not accurate.
  • For certain features on Ahrefs Site Explorer, there can a more elaborate description/guide on how to utilize the feature.

  • 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.

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

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.

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

  • We have been able to identify and report to clients on reasons for significant changes in the SERPs. This has led to greater client trust and deeper client relationships.
  • We have been able to identify client opportunities for link building from competitors' links.
  • We have identified key broken pages for easy fixes and SEO wins.

  • 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.
