Overall Satisfaction with Ahrefs Site Explorer

We use Ahrefs Site Explorer for backlink analysis, broken link finding, and historical data. We use it for research on current clients' websites, competitors, on-boarding clients' websites and even just for fun.
  • Quickly updated backlink data
  • Extreme detail of backlinks, anchor text and strength of backlinks
  • Well designed interface
  • Their global ranks fluctuate wildly when listed below 1 million
  • Price
  • Slow updating to fixes of broken links
  • Streamlined analysis
  • Easy-to-understand reports for us and our clients
  • Up-to-date backlinks means we always know when new links pop-up and can take advantage of them quicker
Generally these two products offer the same features, but Ahrefs updates far faster meaning their metrics are more relevant.
Ahrefs Site Explorer is especially well suited for thorough analysis of backlinks, however its keyword ranking software is a bit limited. However, at the time of writing, that is a brand new feature.
