Overall Satisfaction with Ahrefs

We use to inform all our content production decisions - what keywords to target, where to look for guest post opportunities and how to break down each article into sections and topics.

Before Ahrefs, all the above was done by intuition and guesswork - and wasn't very effective. Now we're able to take a scientific approach to SEO.
  • Shows us which websites link to our content and how valuable those links are for SEO.
  • Shows us keywords we'll be able to rank for and what type of content is needed.
  • Accurately measures our search rankings for existing content.
  • Their customer service, while friendly, can be slow to solve problems.
  • Their UI is hardcore and takes awhile for new users to penetrate.
  • Guided flows would be useful - so new users know where to look first.
  • We've been able to write content that ranks quickly.
  • We've been able to find who we compete with in search and plan to beat them.
  • We've found guest post opportunities that have helped our backlink profile.
Ahrefs provides a lot more data, in a lot more detail - and tells you exactly why it matters.
Moz is a nice tool - the UI is easier to navigate and there are more prompts for new users - but anyone doing serious work will do better with Ahrefs.

Would you buy Ahrefs again?

Yes

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.
