Currently, we're looking at back links -- internally and externally, redirect types, new and lost links, and indexing.

We also use it to diagnose Google penalties. It has been extremely valuable when helping clients recover from these penalties. It provides the key metrics and attributes when need to identify real problems they may be having. The export features are nice as well.,The index of links updates very often The export features allow easy data cross analysis with other data sources The price is well worth the return of service and usefulness,Sometimes the index does not pick up current live links for a long time. The cap for data exports is pretty low considering the vastness of a link profile. There should be a feature where you can classify link types by your own parameters.,7,Helped remove penalties Proved content marketing strategy Helped improve content marketing offering,Majestic SEO,Open Site Explorer,10Large Web Index, Good for Backlink ResearchAhrefs Site Explorer is being used primarily by the SEO department to monitor and track backlinks for client and competitor websites. Ahrefs' web crawler provides a large amount of data including new/lost links, referring domains, and anchor text distribution to identify gaps or red flags for a website's inbound links. This large dataset is especially useful for off-site SEO audits, competitor analysis, and backlink cleanup.,Large data set of inbound links across a seemingly infinite set of websites and pages. Intuitive interface and dashboard data that can be exported to a spreadsheet.,New/Lost link lists are typically inaccurate, making it hard to identify real trends vs. links that have just been discovered by Ahrefs.

I do not make this decision. But if I had to make a recommendation, I would recommend that we continue use of Ahrefs as long as backlink and link profile is a part of our strategy and an added value we provide to our clients. I'd have no problem continuing use.

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 Review: "Large Web Index, Good for Backlink Research"

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.
