Overall Satisfaction with Ahrefs Site Explorer

We use Ahrefs for link building and finding new content marketing opportunities. It is being used by the whole marketing department in various ways; some use it for finding new and valuable link prospects, while the content marketing team uses its keyword research tools for optimizing textual content.

  • Link auditing
  • Offsite marketing
  • Content marketing
  • Website auditing
  • Onsite SEO
  • PPC optimization
  • Increase in value per visit (more targeted traffic).
  • Increase in monthly revenue (average of 20% within 4 months of using Ahrefs) for the majority of our clients.
  • 15% increase in ROI for our business since we started using Ahrefs.
Ahrefs is the oldest of the tools and its index is gigantic in comparison. It also distinguishes between live and historical links which is important for determening the current value of a website.

It lacks some of the onsite auditing tools which Serpstat Moz and even SE Ranking have, but it recently added website auditing in its list of features, so it's getting there.

For offsite SEO and marketing agencies, Ahrefs is a must-have SEO tool.
Ahrefs is suitable for SMBs, but also marketing agencies. Their dashboard makes it very easy to track and see offsite positive or negative trends of the websites. Links are still the number one ranking factor, so it's good to have the number one SEO tools when it comes to the index vastness.

It is costly, but it takes SEO to another level, so it's good to have it at your disposal.
