    Ahrefs

    It gives the best report to us which helps us to find the opportunity to build backlinks. Another main feature that makes Ahrefs a safe and sound approach to SEO is that it provides information about duplicate content, URLs, redirects along with other errors that can be dangerous to the website.

    It is an outstanding resource for creating accessible websites or else to improve on accessibility for websites your organization already has. Although the price is a bit high, it is worth the investment. The user interface of this software has a good design, is not complicated to adopt, and has resources that help to understand the importance of accessibility in websites.

    Pros

    Ahrefs

    • Backlink data: Ahrefs continues to provide the best backlink data in the industry when compared to other tools. Other players are playing catching up, but as a first mover, Ahrefs is ahead of the game by far.
    • Keyword data: Ahrefs provides extremely valuable keyword data. Though I rank them second in this category, the data that they provide is comparable to the first ranked player.
    • Content Explorer: I don't think other industry tools (SEO specific) has a content explorer as useful as Ahrefs. Their content explorer works great for identifying top content and trends for multiple industries.
    • Rank Tracker: This rank tracker is better than the average tracker and Ahrefs provides a large limit for tracked keywords. Though they have moved away from daily updates, the rank tracker is great for bench marking progress.

    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.
    Joshua Titsworth | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Silktide

    • The ability to buy more page ranges on larger sites would be great
    • The speed test would benefit from integration to Google's Lighthouse testing
    • SEO rank checking could be broader

    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

    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.

    Ahrefs has always been responsive when there's been a technical issue with the site. There are usually very little problems, but if there are, they announce it on their social media accounts which keeps its customers informed. Email support is prompt and the customer service people are very helpful, knowledgable and friendly.

    Alternatives Considered

    Ahrefs

    I think when it comes to keyword tracking, Ahrefs is not as good BrightEdge, but Ahrefs Site Explorer trumps BrightEdge when it comes to anything backlink related. I would use Ahrefs Site Explorer for backlink analysis, identifying 404 error pages, examining anchor texts, and exploring top content. However, I would utilze BrightEdge for keyword and ranking information

    It is essential to meet all accessibility standards on every website to make them suitable for all types of users that browse them. This is something that Silktide has proven to be instrumental in.

    Return on Investment

    Ahrefs

    • When we can create really great content for our site that ranks well and quickly, we can more effectively monetize that content with affiliate links.
    • Boosting our clients' overall rankings also has a positive impact on revenue since the lifetime value for a client with a high performing campaign is better than one that is lackluster
    • We can analyze competitors (of ours and our clients) and hopefully outmaneuver them digitally

    Silktide

    • Continuing our commitment towards Accessibility
    • Clients can easily understand changes
    • As a manager, playing "bad cop" is no longer needed because Silktide does it for us
