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.

Ahrefs is perfectly suited for the average website to run a backlink review, track link building, and to discover keyword opportunities. There are several ways to track competitors progress as well.

Ahrefs has led me to make several recommendations for answer box featured content and other types of content as well. I get tons of ad-hoc requests for keywords and topics to review because my colleagues have found this information so useful to them. I rarely have to edit the exported reports because they are so clear, even to those with little SEO background.

I would rate it 8/10 because its result match Google Serp Result. I think it's all in one Seo tools box which gives a lot of options under a single dashboard
Nothing is perfect in this world. it has some lacks as well Fetching data and some time it causes an error and slow loading that can lead to bad User experience

There are a number of great SEO tools out there, including Semrush and Ahrefs, but I think personally i'd give the edge to Ahrefs. It is a fantastic tool for identifying high volume, low competition keywords and crafting an article structure that will ideally perform well in the Google algorithm's eyes, and ideally move up the rankings quickly.

Ahrefs is a must have service for SEO and Advertising agencies providing promotion services. It is also a good service to have for every company running a website and highly dependent on organic traffic. If online sales and traffic are not your number one source of income, Ahrefs is something you'd better leave for experts of the search engine optimization community.

Ahrefs is great tool to use when building out a link profile for a website and for tracking that record over time. It is best used for organic as opposed to local efforts particularly if you are looking for the frequency of special search features like site links and top stories.

The link tracking is great, but we need to test out Moz's new index as well to determine if they have bridged the gap. For organic keywords, I haven't used it in depth, but my feeling has been that SEMrush has more comprehensive data in this area. I could be wrong about that though.

This is a complete tool but [Ahrefs] can also be a complex tool. I tend to let coworkers use it but [it] never goes without some explaining to do. There is plenty of info on the internet and in their on website/blogs. We also mainly use it for link building, and use other tools for research on keywords and reporting ranks to customers, where this tool comes short.

After using multiple tools over a period of time and the functionality you might need there might be some better tools on the market function wise and price wise.

For our purposes of helping provide comprehensive SEO analytics over time for several different websites, Ahrefs is the best tool we've found. It has an easy to use interface, doesn't require downloading and installing any software, and provides an extensive library of help resources and tips for application. From page performance analysis to keyword analysis and competitor rank tracking, Ahrefs is a one stop shop for SEO.

For SEO purposes, Ahrefs is simply the best out there. It has the best backlink data and its data analysis is superb. If you want to find SEO opportunities, Ahrefs makes it very easy to find them.

I'd like to see an improvement in the keyword generator to show more suggested keywords and long phrases. Also, if someone wants to get PPC data, I think there are others tools more suited for this.

While Ahrefs has a wide range of uses, I prefer to use it for competitive, keyword, and content research as well as backlink analysis. If you are using it for any one of those purposes then I would say it's an excellent tool.

As an SEO professional, Ahrefs is almost an essential tool in my arsenal to discover meaningful backlink and off-page data in regards to my clients. There are multiple scenarios in which I turn to Ahrefs including:
  1. Rapid keyword growth on a page that hasn't had any on-page optimizations performed on it.
  2. Toxic backlink analysis.
  3. Competitor research (off-page).
  4. Weekly New/Lost backlink alerts.

If you're looking for detailed and actionable SEO data, Ahrefs is useful. It does cost quite a bit, though, so is best suited for more established companies, with existing content and at least a partial strategy for growth. New companies still exploring SEO might not get the full benefit at the start.

It's a great tool to help someone learn the ropes of SEO. Obviously it's not a be-all end-all; you shouldn't solely be looking to boost your metrics in Ahrefs; you should be tracking KPIs that are more centrally-tied to a business. But it does help provide a structural framework for understanding why one website is outranking another, or how you can do certain things; like figure out what pieces of content actually attracted links, find out who's linked to who, and prospect for people to ask for links.

If you are trying to establish recurring traffic to your website, want to increase traffic, or want to monitor current traffic then ahrefs is a great tool for you to use at your organization. You can see what keywords you rank for and also those that competitors rank for. Its also helpful for finding keywords with good traffic volume that aren't too hard to compete for.

When you can afford it Ahrefs is the most capable of all its competitors. However, it requires someone who really understands SEO and is willing to put in the time to learn the tool and make use of everything. If anyone is new to the SEO world I would recommend choosing a different software.

Ahrefs is well suited if you are a beginner to SEO as it is intuitive. It is also a good fit for advanced uses though thanks to a strong feature set. It helps you to optimize your general SEO very well and discover ideas for new keywords you want to rank for. It is less good if you want to optimize specific content pieces.

Ahrefs is perfect for anyone starting an SEO campaign, or anyone well into an SEO campaign. Unless you have an established site that is ranking for all your target keywords, Ahrefs is a vital tool to help you find high quality backlinks and targeted keywords that your site can rank for and bring in high converting traffic.

Ahrefs Site Explorer is great for finding new keywords that you didn't already have in your website or even better versions of the ones you already have. The tool used for link management is great because it's easy to use and generates links you don't have quickly. This allows us to contact other vendors and have them quickly link to our website.

  • We love Ahrefs Site Explorer, and it's been an invaluable tool. We switched from a competitor tool because we felt Ahrefs Site Explorer better suited our needs. We were doing more content creation, strategy, and comparisons. Ahrefs Site Explorer has helped us find content gaps with our competitors, and we've been able to create a strategy to go after those gaps.
  • The keyword research section has been really good for us. It's been really valuable to see the click percentage when we're doing keyword research.

Ahrefs is well suited for anyone developing websites, blogging, or needing to attract more traffic. It is also good for researching keywords for adwords. It is not well suited for anyone who does not have a good foundational grasp of search optimization.
