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.

Cons

  • Depending on your plan, how often your Keyword Rankings Update and the amount of times you can search domains are limited, if they could increase this number it would be great.

  • Whitespark should increase the daily limit of Local Citation Finder reports, 20 is small.
  • I'd like it if you could tell the Local Citation Finder to search for just a phone number or just a business name instead of all NAP criteria.

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

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

Ahrefs offers what each of these products have and more along with an easy to understand layout. If you had to choose one of the above due to pricing I would say go with SEMRush, however, if you don't have an issue with pricing then your best option will be Ahrefs

I prefer Link Research Tools' CBLT tool for competitive backlink reports.

Return on Investment

  • My traffic has skyrocketed since I started using Ahrefs, my ROI is extremely high. It's hard to put a value to it because without this tool obtaining backlinks would be really hard.

  • Has allowed us to more effectively update business information to prefect organic traffic loss during name or address changes.
