Open Site Explorer

Open Site Explorer is one tool which marketers use to improve their SEO performance. It highlights strengths and weaknesses in your inbound link profile, which helps you to improve your content strategy and public relations efforts. But, it is only one tool. It does not specialize in other SEO tasks, such as on-page technical optimization.

Alternatives Considered

Open Site Explorer

Ahrefs is much more comprehensive than Open Site Explorer. If you are in need of a deep backlink analysis there are better options out there for your money. If you need a quick look at the state of a client's backlink profile than OSE is for you. It will give you the top metrics you are looking for and then some. I find OSE to be more user-friendly than competitors
