"Ahrefs is exactly what our "SEO game" was lacking!"

What do you like best?

This is my favorite marketing tool! I like Ahrefs because it allows me to track backlinks and keywords for our niche. Since we're creating software, there are quite a few competitors that we have. And thanks to Ahrefs, I'm able to see what the competition is doing which allows us to improve what we are lacking SEO-wise.

What do you dislike?

The biggest downside I think is the inaccurate keyword volume sometimes. Previously, I was only using Google's keyword planner and it gave us more precise volumes. I guess it's easier for Google since it's their own tool and they can give better numbers. This confuses us because in Ahrefs we may see potential in various keywords but in the long run, after our articles are published – the traffic is not what we expect sometimes. Though, it's accurate enough for the most part.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're okay with the pricing they offer – Ahrefs is the perfect solution for any content creators out there. You are able to step up your SEO game with data on number of backlinks as well as info on that particular site. But before you start using Ahrefs, try out what Google already offers first, maybe it will be enough for you in the beginning.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are getting quality data for keywords, competition and using their backlink checker – we get an idea on what websites link to our competitors and what we should focus on. We use Ahrefs for all of our SEO needs.

Biggest benefit I find is that rich data we can get for content creation. It definitely pays off!

"Easy-to-use tool for improving SEO"

What do you like best?

The dashboard is an easy way to get an overall picture of our ranking, backlinks, and organic traffic. And as a small company looking to drive brand awareness through search, their keyword exploration tools are essential to our SEO strategy. It's also a pretty straightforward tool to use, so can you jump right in and get a lot of benefits straight away.

What do you dislike?

There isn’t always a lot of data on niche keywords, which makes it difficult to optimize for SEO when writing articles for very specific audiences.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are a zillion SEO tools available — we use Ahrefs in conjunction with a couple of other tools. Consider whether Ahrefs satisfies all your SEO needs or if you need to supplement with another tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ahrefs is our go-to tool for making our content highly visible, so we can significantly grow our organic traffic and attract the right prospects.

"Step Up Your SEO Game x10 with Ahrefs"

What do you like best?

From the new Keyword explorer to Rank tracker – Ahrefs is definitely an essential service for our marketing strategy. Our organic traffic depends on our brand and SEO presence. With Ahrefs we were able to track down the backlinks our competitors have and aim into the proper internet space.

Here's our situation – we sell software for Mac and Windows. The problem we solve with our software is directed at those who have a pain and search for a solution to this pain on Google. Long story short – SEO is the weapon we use to help our target audience find our products.

We've made a big chunk of articles that target particular keywords. In this articles, we provide tutorials on how to solve a particular problem that users were having after they typed it in their search engine. And this is where Ahrefs comes in.

We can analyze our competitors and analyze the keywords we already use to get new ideas for articles, including long tail keywords. This results in us getting more traffic, more installs and more sales.

Totally recommend it!!

What do you dislike?

One thing I don't like is that Ahrefs sometimes does not provide exact keyword search volume. Instead – it provides approximate numbers which confuses us in cases when we think a keyword should get more traffic that it actually does once the SEO content is published. To get the most up to date and exact numbers, you'd better off use Google's keyword planner.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are a few other options, so it's best if you take a look at other Ahrefs competitors to make sure it fits your exact needs. For us, the price point wasn't always satisfying, but once we saw good results – it made it totally worth it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ahrefs provides solutions to the problems related with SEO ranking and backlink generation. It's a must-have tool if you are serious about having your content at the top of search results.

"Data-filled and indepth backlink analysis tool"

What do you like best?

The index is huge and always has plenty of info, even for smaller, less known sites. There's always backlink info.

Shows date gained, dates lost, etc. Shows broken backlinks.

Great ability to view gained/lost links for specific periods of time, specific days, etc. Makes it very easy to analyze your sites or your competitors' sites.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really. Very happy with this overall. There's so much info and capabilities that I would say it can be a tad confusing. But they have a great collection of how-to videos that will pretty much solve that!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Utilize the "broken backlink" section. Utilize the ability to isolate lost and gained links by date. Let's say you have drops around October. You could go to right before that and specifically isolate good links lost or bad links gained, etc. They also have a good amount of helpful online resources for learning how to use the tool. Great graphs show overall trends for linking domains or linking pages. Check out the ability to sort by AHREFS' quality statistics to help analyze quality/low quality links.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ability to analyze competitor backlinks. Ability to analyze your site's backlinks. I've realized the benefit of finding broken backlinks to handle those and re-capture those links.

"The best link analysis tool in the game"

What do you like best?

Ahrefs boasts the best link database among any system out there. It does most everything -- link monitoring, alerts, calculated metrics, the richest clickstream blend out there, and much more. Its UI is cluttered in a good way and the company has quick and polite support. And Tim Soulo -- the public face of Ahrefs -- has done a ton of good for the SEO community.

What do you dislike?

On-site analysis just doesn't work via a SaaS UI in my point of view. Ahrefs can't yet hold a candle to the rote power and customizability of Screaming Frog or Sitebulb when it comes to drawing metrics from source code.

As my consultancy grew, price no longer became an issue with Ahrefs -- but I do understand why many solo practitioners find it steep.

The support for technical SEO metrics are nigh non-existent, and there are no "spam score" analyses, which is a big way that competitors still beat Ahrefs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Learn the UI and export tools well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Most of my SEO research starts with Ahrefs. My subscription more than pays itself off every month.

"Great complement to Google Analytics"

What do you like best?

I love how easy this product is to use. You can easily check out competitive sites and get quite a bit of info on what they're doing and even where they're spending money. I like their UR and DR ratings and check them monthly for a handful of sites.

What do you dislike?

Even though we're on a paid package, we have to 'upgrade' to see things like links 20-39 of our top link backs. We're paying around $100/month, I think, so only showing us a section of data, for that price, is not cool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We want to monitor our competitors and figure out which sites and pages are linking back to us and which ones are helping us, and hurting us.

"My Go To Tool for SEO"

What do you like best?

There are a lot of SEO tools out there and many of them are exceptionally competitive but AHrefs is always my go-to tool when I'm not using more than one.

One of the things that AHrefs is best at is helping with a content marketing strategy. Though it's best known as a backlink index (which it's great at and I'll get into that), coming up with good content ideas is one of the things I get the most use out of it with using the content explorer. I find articles that do well for the topics I want to target and it's clear what already resonates with your audience which is powerful.

The backlink index is one of the best too though at the time of writing, Moz has just improved their index. Regardless of index size, which theirs is large enough, the type of data they provide is the most useful. The broken links data is probably the most useful that isn't easily matched by other tools. Additionally, going back to the content explorer, you can find unlinked mentions, a feature that appears to have been removed in Moz's "new" tool (I may just not be able to find it).

The rest of the tools are generally matched by other competitors to some degree though, in general, AHrefs understands what you intend to do with that data and presents the most useful information first.

What do you dislike?

The only feature that seems to "lag" compared to it's competitors is their site audit tool. This only launched a few months ago but in my experience experimenting with this tool, it's not the most effective.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is probably the best tool for content marketing, link building, and third party keyword research. If your primary concern is tracking technical errors this tool is alright but probably not the best

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm the biggest AHref's proponent in my agency, we do use the other tools but the biggest benefit that we get is more accurate data to cross-reference with other SEO tools.

"Best backlink tracker software on the market!"

What do you like best?

It is the best backlink analyzer tool on the market. You can track your backlik profile, check our your competitors, and also get email links when you or your competitor gets links.

Also when rankings drop or improve you can get email updates too. A must have for for every SEO expert.

What do you dislike?

The reports are not beautified as other tools. This is more of a no bells and whistle tool, but provide great data points.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Add another layer with a dashboard for rank tracking, so this could be the one and only software fro SEO strategists, or even in house SEO teams.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gaining a competitive landscape of the search market for companies. It helps dig deeper when building strategies than just doing SEO blindly.

"Best All Around SEO Tool"

What do you like best?

Of the three popular backlink reporting tools (Majestic, Moz, Ahrefs), Ahrefs provides the most useful link data. Even in other areas of SEO, Ahrefs seems to always keep their toolsets fresh. They continually add in useful tools and features that make other software suites less relevant. The most recent addition is their site audit tool which provides a beautiful visualization of technical site issues.

The tool I like best within Ahrefs is the content explorer. It provides quick analysis of relevant and popular content for your topic of choice. I primarily use it to determine what kind of content will perform well in social and SEO.

What do you dislike?

When I had their lite plan, I ran into the problem of having to spread SEO research over a few days because of the daily limits. It would have been useful to have an aggregate monthly limit since I don't do SEO research more than once per month. This was easily solved by upgrading to a higher plan.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ahrefs updates and adds to their arsenal of tools constantly. I recommend them to anyone who is looking for an alternative "all in one" SEO toolset if enterprise tools become too costly for their organization.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ahrefs paired with ScreamingFrog and a few other tools provides for most of the data that SEO needs to do a great job. Switching to smaller but more focused tools like these has allowed us to save on costs for enterprise tools.

"Makes competitor research a breeze"

What do you like best?

Their site explorer feature is just amazing for competitor research. Doesn't matter if it's a page or the entire domain, you just put the URL and it gives you their organic keywords and backlinks in a jiffy.

Their content explorer is also one fine feature for content/influencer research. The filters to refine the results come in really handy.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing really to dislike but I think their keyword explorer can get a bit better if it can provide some more keyword ideas based on a seed keyword.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting started with keyword research and backlinking gets difficult for agencies since our clients belong to various industries/domains. Ahrefs has helped us in kickstarting these two things for any client as soon as they sign up.

"Great tool for SEO research!"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to use Ahrefs to track our backlinks, referrals and those of our competitors' websites. I used this tool for link building to boost our search engine optimization and found it incredibly useful - allowing me to see which sites were linking to our competitors and then approaching those sites to links for our website.

What do you dislike?

I wish that more features were available with the free version. There is very little your can do without upgrading to a paid service, and the fees are fairly high.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure to review the paid plans to determine whether you need to upgrade from the free version. If you're doing very simple SEO research, the free version may be sufficient.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Ahrefs primarily for link building and search engine optimization research. The site has allowed us to review the backlinks and referrals that our competitors get, which has informed our own link building work.

"SEO metrics for serious professionals"

What do you like best?

Everything. Seriously.

BACKLINKS--Ahrefs is the king of backlinks.

KEYWORDS--Ahrefs has a great sense of related keywords. I find it more helpful than the same feature in Moz.

RANKINGS--Ahrefs excels at this, too.

What do you dislike?

This is honestly very difficult to answer. One thing that comes to mind--I've had difficulty figuring out where in the interface to manage my email preferences.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give yourself some time to learn the interface if you're new to it. It's more analytical and detailed than Moz.

Also, make sure you continue to learn and educate yourself on SEO concepts generally as you learn the software. The more you know, the more the interface will make sense.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ahrefs allows us to stay on top of our rankings. It also helps us to discover new opportunities and spot issues immediately through a weekly review of Ahrefs. It helps us track our backlink profile. It also helps us spy on our competitors from an SEO perspective. High value all around.

"How Ahrefs helped me tracked my backlinks and helped me know what my competitors are doing"

What do you like best?

The thing that I liked the best about Ahrefs is that it contains a huge database of backlinks when I've checked my own website and my competitor's websites. This has allowed me to dig deeper and find out their exact linkbuilding and SEO strategies. Ahref contains a lot of tools and features that will make the life of an SEO professional or webmaster who wants more search engine traffic a lot easier. One of these features is the batch analysis feature. Basically, instead of entering your competitor's backlinks one at a time you could actually enter it once. This allows you to quickly check on the SEO metrics for a lot of competitor URLs in just one click.

What do you dislike?

What I disliked about Ahrefs is that it takes a little bit of time to learn and use. There's a fairly good amount of learning curve for using Ahrefs. You'll also need to understand what each of the metrics meant in order for you to analyze these metrics properly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ahrefs is one of the most powerful backlink checking tools to date. It's definitely a worthy arsenal in your internet marketing toolset.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a professional blogger, I've always struggled with getting more traffic to my own websites and the websites that I handle. And one of the strategies that I routinely use is search engine optimization. SEO or Search engine optimization involves a lot of things. While On Page SEO is mostly done on the website, the OFF Page stuff is mostly done outside of your website. Ahrefs has helped me do a lot of the Off page stuff like analyzing what are my competitor's SEO strategies, what are their backlinks, where are they getting them. I've also used Ahrefs to find out my competitor's content strategy because I could easily check what are the content and pages that are getting the most shares and backlinks on their website.

"I have yet to see anything better than Ahrefs"

What do you like best?

What I like best about Ahrefs is that they have several different tools that are must-haves for SEOs, all in one place. If you need to do keyword research, they have it right there. If you need to do backlink analysis, it's right there too. Having everything together is a lifesaver.

What do you dislike?

I think that their price is a little high, and even though they have a lot of features, not everybody uses them. I really wish they would offer their keyword research tool as a standalone service for a reduced price.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take some time and familiarize yourself with all that they offer - there's a lot of stuff.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm improving my website's SEO. I'm also getting some content ideas from their research tools. Plus, I have their alerts set up to let me know whenever my name is mentioned throughout the web. It's like Google Alerts, but much more thorough.

"I feel like I'm cheating, but I really am falling in love...."

What do you like best?

As a long time Moz user and I might even say a super fan of their product, it feels really odd to be writing a review of Ahrefs. But here we go--I love Ahrefs. The design, the UI, the gigantic keyword database and now the newly redesign site audit are a thing of beauty. I continue to be impressed by the data they provide, features that are added frequently and my favorite feature has to be the top pages report. (Not sure why I love that so much--but it just makes it extremely simple to research a site or competitor with that report.)

What do you dislike?

Keyword Explorer.... there is nothing wrong with it, I just find the Moz Keyword Explorer (despite having a smaller database) to be easier and faster to use. Otherwise, I really don't have any complaints!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ahrefs might be slightly pricey, but overall I feel it worth the money! If you are an advanced SEO user looking for one software suite, then I feel this is an excellent choice. If you are a beginner--I would recommend Moz. If you have money to spend--get both products. (That is what I do!)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SEO! No seriously--that is all I personally do and being able to use Ahrefs to track keyword rankings, research sites/competitors and now audit sites not only saves me time but helps me to complete my job at a higher level!

"The Most Exhaustive Keyword Research Tool "

What do you like best?

Keyword explorer, which was released few weeks back is one of the most exhaustive tools that we have see off late. Keyword Ideas, Phrase Match and KD help content marketers to align their content marketing efforts with organic search trends. Apart from that from an on page point of view, the tool gives everything that modern age webmaster need to track their overall performance.

What do you dislike?

The Ahref rank seems like an abstract concept. The tool itself was under development for quiet some time and that was exactly when we had purchased it as well. Some of the metrics like KD are available basis cache only and not updated frequently.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keyword Explorer and Rank Tracker are two amazing features that help Ahrefs stand out. Apart from that the product is backed by some great content in terms of how to start cracking traffic and opportunity. Must try

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"The Insights We Need to Out-Link the Competition"

What do you like best?

We love the Intersecting Link Opportunity report, which helps us plan our link-earning strategy based on the semantic Web and relevancy. There really isn't a better way of finding industry websites to market with that could result in organic link wins. Our team has been using Ahrefs for as long as we can remember, mainly because it offers a higher volume of discovered links when weighed against similar tools.

We also really enjoy New and Lost link insights, which allow us to monitor negative SEO behavior and see what the competition is up to in near-real-time.

What do you dislike?

The Intersecting Link Opportunity report we love could offer an automatic version that takes into account the top 20 listings for a given keyword phrase, saving the researcher copy/paste time and having to run multiple requests. Their Most Popular Content list is definitely helpful, but doesn't give us the semantic relevancy we get from the intersecting report.

Highlighting unlinked domains is fantastic, but completely useless without the ability to export and exclude highlighted opportunities. They really need to fix that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You won't find a better a better link research tool than Ahrefs. It complements Buzzstream and other link building CRM software extremely well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google cares about Content first and Links second when it comes to how it ranks a page within it's results. This tool allows us to see where competing domains are earning links and insights into the specific content that attracts links for the competition. This insights assist us in creating an actionable strategy for our clients using a CRM such as Buzzstream to import data into.

"High quality keyword data and analysis"

What do you like best?

We recently switched over to Ahrefs from Moz. Perhaps the greatest (and my favorite) aspect of Ahrefs is with the Link Intersect tool, which lets you compare backlink profiles of your websites with other competitors, to see where they have been getting backlinks. In addition, their tools for collecting keyword data are top quality as well.

What do you dislike?

While not an absolutely necessary feature, Ahrefs does not have an on-page grader tool like Moz. This is a tool I would recommend for more advanced SEO practitioners who are comfortable sorting through a lot of data.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Discovering competitive backlink opportunities has been a great boon to help our clients strengthen their overall SEO.

What do you like best?

The tool has everything. Rank tracking, site audit, link research etc. And all the tools inside ahrefs are really powerful unlike ahrefs' competitors which add new tools for new tools sake.

I particularly like the backlink research feature as ahrefs lets you slice and dice the data in many ways.

What do you dislike?

I don't the limits they have placed. They should increase the limits a bit.

"Most advanced SEO tool on the market"

What do you like best?

Ahrefs accuracy is amazing. It is incredible how much data you can pull from other websites. My team and I use Ahrefs all the time to ensure our content is primed for Google rankings and traffic. Without it, we'd be lost in what content we should write and what keywords we should target.

But I'd also go as far to say that we are constantly learning new things about Ahrefs and what it can do. So much to this tool, it is absolutely incredible.

I'm also a really big fan of their blog. They've got some incredible information there and worth checking out.

What do you dislike?

While Ahrefs can do a LOT, their tutorials and training on how to use it is lacking. I wish they'd have a full free course on everything Ahrefs can do. This would have helped my team do a much better job from the beginning and become more comfortable with it as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to figure out everything Ahrefs can do. You'd be surprised with how much they offer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ahrefs helps us to figure out what keywords to target, what content to write and what backlinks to go after so that we can beat our competitors, raise our rankings on Google and dominate our industry. Thanks to Ahrefs we now get over 100K visitors per month and were able to do that in just over a year.

"Nothing comes close for backlink work."

What do you like best?

The library and crawl index for Ahrefs is unparalleled. If you need to know competitive landscape and build backlinks, there is not another player in this space. moz, etc doesn't come anywhere close. they do alright in other factors, but purely from a research and backlink profile perspective Ahrefs is the leader without competition. Comparison features and backlink tracking are indispensable. Good to help with estimation of traffic on potential client's websites. You can go to the table in a client meeting better prepared. This along with SEO powersuite makes a good package.

What do you dislike?

They know they can charge a hefty fee, so they do. If I could do without their service, I would, but nothing that "competes" with this can come close to the depth of information.

Recommendations to others considering the product

do the trial, along with several other trials. You can definitively rule out 90% of these softwares/interfaces if they are side by side with Ahrefs. I believe Ahrefs will rise to the top when placed alongside the others.

"A powerful and all-in-one content marketing and SERP tracking tool"

What do you like best?

There is so much to like. Ahrefs is the best backlink management and monitoring tool I've ever used. It finds more backlinks quicker than any other backlink tracking tool, as well as a great option to attack and monitor competitors backlinks.

Backlink acquisition is also made easy by Ahrefs content explorer that makes tools like BuzzSumo of no use to me. I can monitoring new brand mentions, mentions of competitors, and new content with a specific keyword.

It's keyword tracking is amazing, as well as the SERP management and monitoring. You get a great view of the entire site, subdomains and even specific URLs.

Content marketers also no longer need to use Adwords for their keyword planning! Ahrefs has a great keyword planning system that is super helpful to come up with new ideas for content.

What do you dislike?

Expensive.

Like all backlink monitors, it doesn't pick up anywhere near all backlinks and is slow to pick up new backlinks. However, all backlink tools have this same problem and Ahrefs is the best of those tools. One of my biggest gripes is that Ahrefs drops backlinks and count them as a lost domain, but after looking into the dropped campaigns you find that a majority of them are still there and Ahrefs dropped them from your backlink profile for an unknown reason.

I monitor a ton of keywords, so the rank tracker tool is kind of a cluttered, useless too for me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The first few days may have a tough learning curve, but don't give up! Explore all the different features of the tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Backlink monitoring and building, keyword planning, SERP management and monitoring.

"Search marketing multitool, good depth of index, regularly adds new features"

What do you like best?

It finds more links than similar tools, and provides tools to help explore them. Provides access to deep information on competitor sites. Regularly adds new features to help marketers explore their link profile; one example being separating out "Live" and "Fresh" index so you can find recent but non current links.

What do you dislike?

A little expensive. Support responses can be slow. Interface can be rather confusing although they recently improved it a lot (see above re: regular updates). I couldn't get the Chrome Extension to work in any of my installations of Chrome, so I still use competitor toolbars in my browser. You can't ever change your login email address thanks to the billing system, so choose carefully.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Prepare to spend your life spelling it to finance / procurement, etc, or debating its pronunciation with colleagues. And you will find helpful how-to videos not only from Ahrefs' YouTube channel, but also third parties such as Authority Hacker.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Provides a way to track the effect of link building activity and demonstrate the impact on search traffic. Excellent for competitor analysis. Helps with researching what content to produce, which competitors are gaining in search and why, which keywords your site could realistically aim to rank for, and gives you enough information to plan how to do it.

"Most powerful SEO tool "

What do you like best?

Ahrefs data turned SEO game to the next level. Using content explorer you can find a lot of fresh data and useful content. Backlink tracker work almost perfectly. Beside tool which is better from day to day, is you are new in this game Ahrefs team shares very useful information on their blog and Facebook group. Well done!

What do you dislike?

Recently they announce new rank tracker limitations, but this is not crucial.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In depth backlink analysis, finding new and qualified prospects.

"The tool that stole the show among SEO tools."

What do you like best?

I like how Ahrefs keeps improving fast and seem to be truly adamant about being THE tool for SEO.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that keyword positions still aren't as precise as SEMRush reports them, but that could for whatever reason be only my experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sign up for the free 14-day trial and test if it covers your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have solved the need of buying 2-4 separate SEO tools and switched to Ahrefs for almost all of the projects our agency is currently running. The clients like it too, as the UI is simpler than most others.

"Keywords super useful"

What do you like best?

My favorite feature of Ahrefs is the keywords explorer section. I use this constantly when trying to rank pages/products higher and general optimization. It is also nice to see how we compare to competitors in Ahrefs rank, backlinks, and keyword rank.

What do you dislike?

I think they could add a couple other sections to the keywords explorer tab, or have better explanations for how they have that part sorted for easier use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend Ahrefs to any company looking to rank their site/products higher.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Any marketing professional understands keywords affect rank and rank is everything. If a customer is unable to find your site/products they won't ever use your business.

"Amazing SEO tool"

What do you like best?

The amount of data that Ahrefs provides is staggering. There's more information I am able to get out of it than I will ever be able to use.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that it's so complex that it's intimidating. However, it is the easiest to use out of all the SEO tools I've used.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to read through their vast amounts of case studies and blog posts. So useful!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting a snapshot of my websites search ranking and performance. The benefits are that I'm able to see where I'm winning and where I'm falling short.

"Wouldn't be able to do SEO without Ahrefs"

What do you like best?

I love Ahref's backlink archive. I honestly think it's the best and most accurate in the business at giving you the backlink profile of a website. Yes, better than Moz and SEMRush.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the UR and DR metrics for I sometimes feel like they aren't accurate. I have yet to see very much consistency from these 2 metrics.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Really take advantage of this tool for its backlink data, and its ability to analyze the content's performance of a website in the Top Pages section.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ahrefs provides tremendous opportunity to help you in your quest to acquire backlinks, whether it may be for yourself or for a client website. It helps by telling you who, when, and where all the backlinks are coming from on almost any given website.

"I don’t know how anyone in digital marketing does it without Ahrefs"

What do you like best?

The features of Ahrefs are practically endless. It’s one of the few softwares I truly use each and everyday and it’s so incredibly easy to use.

What do you dislike?

Some of the buttons/ fields are not the easiest to follow and the side bar could have different labels. Always forget where certain things are hidden

"Once an industry leader, now using backhand techniques to rip off loyal users."

What do you like best?

Their search data and models are super accurate for identifying real world consequences of link building. Very high accuracy on a number of terms.

What do you dislike?

They've gutted their rank tracking system. Legacy customers who have been with the company for years were reduced from updates every day to updates every FIVE days. Unusable anymore. I may completely leave their platform and I will never recommend the service to anyone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look to SEMrush or Moz.com. Ahrefs has become low quality.

"Ahrefs quickly replaced Moz and Open Site Explorer"

What do you like best?

What can you say about a tool that so intuitively reaches into the depths of the internet to show you every link, every share, and every tweet pointing to the site you are researching. I always joke that you can't hide something from an SEO and it's these tools that make that possible.

Can't say enough nice things about Ahrefs, it quickly became our one stop tool.

What do you dislike?

I wish when you went to the Ahrefs homepage that it let you do the Site Explorer thing instead of trying to get you to setup one of their campaigns, I usually just want to glance at the data quickly, and having to click over to explorer is just one extra step - that is a nitpick, but it's something I deal with on every use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just get it - it's a slam dunk, it's easy and you'll have more data than you'll ever use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It gives us access to the data we need to quickly figure out how much competition a competitor has for our clients, and compare that to find out how much work we'll have to do and how much time we'll have to spend on the clients site/backlinks.

"A completely necessary tool for an SEO professional"

What do you like best?

The Domain Health overview is fantastic for finding out if a website has toxic links in its profile. Ahrefs also has many features that go well beyond just links -- a list of critical issues such as missing or duplicate meta tags, broken internal links, and broken back links.

What do you dislike?

There's seriously not much to dislike, but the rank tracking functionality is pretty decent -- I like the fact that it has keyword suggestions with search volume and traffic, however, once you try to add the keywords to the tracker, I had it error out a couple of times and had to re-do my selections.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it for at least three months. It takes continual use to discovering the best features the product has to offer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ahrefs is one of the first tools I use to asses a new or potential client. If they have low-quality back links, this tool with tell me. I can then schedule link detox as one of the first parts of the strategy.

"My go-to SEO tool"

What do you like best?

It's hard to pinpoint one specific thing that I like about Ahrefs. I mean not only does the product do a deep dive into everything SEO, but the blog is one of the most educational blogs out there.

What do you dislike?

It's not cheap, and the amount of features of the cheapest level is pretty restricted. The real power of the platform opened up to me when I upgraded and got more features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As a newbie to SEO, Ahrefs can not only help you, but also educate you. Do consider getting more than just the cheapest plan, as it gives you access to much more features that a lot of your competitors may forget.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Everything SEO. Ahrefs tells us what keywords we rank for, where they rank, and a huge amount of information about backlinks and referring domains. It's helped us grow organic traffic and create the content funnel that turns into sales.

"The best link building tool in the market"

What do you like best?

Ahrefs is the best link building tool in the market. I really like it. I have tested many tools but none gets closer to the amount of accurate data Ahrefs provides.

Their system is really quick to pick new links gained as well as links from 301 redirects. Combining Ahrefs data with Google Webmasters Tools is the best way to do a proper link audit.

The way they present the data is easy to digest and the most important part; you can export pretty much anything from it.

Besides the links, Ahrefs also provide useful information about the social media presence.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes Ahrefs does not show new links right away.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very good link audit tool. Probably the best.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ahrefs is the main tool I use for link audit for my clients. It gives all the information I need to make a decision if I should drop a link and also if I should make a move and try to get one of the competitors links.

"Love the features - especially new/lost referring domains"

I like the new/lost domains and links. I use the lost links and domains report to follow up with prospects in hopes to renew the link on the site. 9/10 times this works to re-acquire a decent link back to my client's sites.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a way to send alerts for lost links in real time. I also feel that the link intersect could be a bit more detailed.

Excellent go-to source for link data. Use in conjunction with Majestic and Search Console, and you're set.

"Great Product for Link Analisys but Pricey"

What do you like best?

ahrefs does a great job of showing both social and backlinks. You can get a free trial and a few limited features work on the free plan.

Only the free plan you can only see the top 5 links on a single site but you can still see the summary of your links - domain health, URL rating, backlinks, referring domains, organic keywords, and ip. You can drill down into all these.

You can track 5 keywords and get a ranking report every week.

The full blown version offers much more

What do you dislike?

ahrefs is pricier at $99/month than Majestic's Silver Quarterly Plan ($50/month - regular price is $79/month) and about the same as Moz Pro ($99/month) . They know they are good so no budget prices fro them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

if you can afford a link analysis tool, you must consider ahrefs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Like all SEO companies we strive to get links for our clients' websites and ourselves.

If we had the budget we would definitely want a subscription to ahrefs as well as Majestic, Moz Pro, and Buzzsumo to name a few. Since we are not a big company with deep pockets we try to get as much as possible out of teh free versions of the tools.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Carefully consider any keyword tracking limits and set up lists to group your keywords. We didn't have any keyword limits, so this software was a great tool for both historical rankings as well as a good backup in case other enterprise software hiccuped.

"A lite-weight tool for technical SEO monitoring analytics "

What do you like best?

When we were just beginning to make SEO analytics part of our weekly content meeting, Ahref was a fast informative tool. The keyword watching process was quick and meaningful. The alerts and reports lists are easy to export and send to the team for repairs. We've kept on using it for its backlink report, even after primarily switching to other tools

What do you dislike?

The reporting tools felt lightweight even when we started. Graphical comparisons of competitors can't be done, and overall the app doesn't feel like an operational dashboard. Also, there lo long-timescale for data trends. You can only see the most recent change. That just doesn't compare with tools like SEM Rush. Another feature that really felt missing was the ability to label keywords we are watching. This simple addition let's you switch 'views' of your site's data. When you have multiple content strategies running as the same time, the keyword labels (and label groups in general) let you keep clear on what's working.

If SEO analytics seems overwhelming to you, start with this tool.

"Taking link data further"

What do you like best?

In depth link data available alongside historical organic ranking data and keyword research tools. It's pretty easy to get the job done here without jumping to another tool for something.

What do you dislike?

The reporting capabilities are a little lacking in shareable reporting - you can export CSV data all day, but I really would like many of the dashboard reprots to be a sharable URL...

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider this over SEMrush, it's got as much data for kw research and blows their link data out of the water while also providing actual position tracking too.

"Track backlinks easily"

What do you like best?

You can easily keep track of sites that have linked to your content and drill down to the specific URL where your link appears. You can also see when those links appeared and how authoritative each one is.

What do you dislike?

The organic and paid search estimators are inaccurate. The position heatmap is designed to give you an overview of rankings, but is nearly impossible to discern since it's a blur of colors.

Ahrefs' core competency is measuring quantity and quality of backlinks. Do not use this tool if you're looking for it to work for rank traffic, traffic estimating, or competitor insights.

"Ahrefs: The SEO Profile Mecca"

What do you like best?

Ahrefs provides the best graphically-pleasing trends. It makes a high-level snapshot easy to absorb and quickly helps the user determine site history. It's also great for sending quick analyses to execs when you don't have the time to compile a more robust audit.

What do you dislike?

As with any backlink reports, I have found some inconsistency in link numbers. Ahrefs tends to be fairly consistent, but I always double-check with other sources.

That being said, I typically rely on the Ahrefs linking domains (instead of referring links #s) profile since that has more business use for me.

"Solid Tool for Link Building"

What do you like best?

Great catalogue of competitors' back links and linking opportunities for your site. Ahrefs also has great customer support--Someone will get back to you in an hour or so to answer any questions you might have. The pricing is also reasonable for the industry.

What do you dislike?

If you don't pay for the premium packages, you can't really access most of the software. For us (small company), the link intersect tool is nearly useless because we need to upgrade to see nearly all of the results. We were upgraded to the "middle" package when they increased their prices last year, but it still feels as though we're missing out on a lot of the data.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you invest any time in link building, this is a good tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This has allowed us to repaid broken links, find good opportunities and domains to connect with, and analyze what strategies our competitors are using.

"The best backlink tool on the market"

What do you like best?

I've used Ahrefs since it was first released. The team has done an amazing job of staying current with new updates in search and is constantly pushing the product in new and exciting directions. I am seriously a huge fan. It's a lot more than an SEO tool - it's a general purpose growth marketing tool that can help you a lot when it comes to putting together a marketing or PR strategy.

What do you dislike?

I would say that i don't always have confidence in their proprietary metrics like DR, but I mainly use them as a raw data source.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's helped us put together pitch lists and come up with new ideas for our content marketing.

"Great product, great experience"

What do you like best?

I really like the power of the tool. It can handle all sorts of different measurements, helping you identify strengths and weaknesses of your website's SEO.

What do you dislike?

I pretty much like the whole package. If you are a beginner, you may struggle at first.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would certainly consider Ahrefs. I have found it a lot easier to use than other SEO measurement tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Ahrefs to measure our SEO performance. It's a great tool that clearly identifies strengths and weaknesses.

"great product I use daily"

What do you like best?

I use this as my daily workhorse while doing SEO/linkbuilding.

The results are quick and are pretty much exactly what I need to build quality links.

The quality and accuracy of the results seem to be the most accurate compared to other platforms.

What do you dislike?

The software will sometimes show too many 404 or non existing web page as results. I haven't been able to figure out how to remove them from the results since they are basically useless for what I use the program for. A simple button "remove dead pages from results" might be a great future upgrade.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this product for anyone who is looking to do quality white hat SEO

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using the software to help us find quality sub pages on websites that are good candidates for link building.

"Love ahrefs"

What do you like best?

I like the way you can keep track of the links that point to your competitors websites and actually have weekly updates and export to CSV.

What do you dislike?

I didn't dig deep enough to dislike anything. This is the software that the biggest companies use for SEO and the best SEO freelancers. It should be a reason for that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are serious about SEO, you should go for Ahrefs

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

You can keep track of what your competitors do, the content they generate, the backlinks they have, how they change over time, from where they come. Is the most complete solution I have come across.

What do you like best?

No other tool comes close to the quality of competitor analysis offered by Ahrefs. Simply the best backlink analysis tool in the market.

What do you dislike?

The Rank Tracker. I have had it give a few inaccurate results at times, but it could easily be due to Google's personalization.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Ahrefs is the Industry Standard for Backlink Analyzation"

What do you like best?

There's an extensive amount of easy user experience with this site. It doesn't take any kind of in depth training to get started.

What do you dislike?

Up to date information. Sometimes the information be it the page rank, domain rank, or backlinks don't match other pieces of software like Moz when analyzing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great bet to get started with backlink profile analyzation for both you and your competitors. This will take a lot of the guess work out when targeting your audience.

"Very strong software but could do with a ux upgrade"

What do you like best?

The software is extremely powerful where you are looking to keep an eye on your profile or do a full audit i can't recommend this software enough

What do you dislike?

The user experience is a bit dated and depending on what you use it for can be a bit of a pain in the a**. I can't recommend it highly enough and the main overview page removing the new and lost was a bit of a mistake. The old report was a lot better and useful but the added extras were very useful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

well yes and no to moving in the right direction because they are in the improvements they've made but there is a lot of stuff which has been removed/changed from previous reports which are now more difficult to understand like the overview graphs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

mainly backlink audits and backlink removals. This gives you endless data to be able to be as thorough as possible but also allows to monitor it as well because of how often the index is updated compared to other software.

Ahrefs backlink index is the biggest out there. There is so much data that you can use to analyze client and as well competitor websites. You're able to compare anchor text, referring domains, authority of backlinks, what backlinks are new/lost, etc.

What do you dislike?

The amount of data that ahrefs provides is massive. This can be kind of overwhelming to new users of the product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ahrefs is the #1 software for analyzing backlink in my opinion. It's a product that an SEO professional should use on a daily basis.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I like the ability to see several components of competitors backlinks - the actual backlinks, unlinked mentions, shared backlinks, etc.

What do you dislike?

The new format of the backlink research is a little confusing, the old format was much easier to use. Also, Ahrefs doesn't populate as quickly as other tools like GWT, for example, so you come across a lot of ghost links in your research.

I like the fact that this site offers a free version of there product. The free version is sufficient for most of my business needs, and most likely it will suffice for your needs as well. They provide links from other sites linking into a site you specifiy. The key in this is helping you to check out what backlinks your competitors are using, and potentially swoop in and get those links for your own site! This is such an important thing to have.

"Go-To Backlink Tool"

What do you like best?

The new and lost backlink report is great. Showing you new and lost backlinks day-by-day and the information behind it really helps you understand how you're linking in real time. The granularity that you can achieve with Ahrefs reports is great, also. The high level overview data is great, but the way that Ahrefs allows you to drill down, you can find any kind of information you're looking for about your own domains, links, and competitors.

What do you dislike?

There isn't too much to dislike about Ahrefs. If I had to pick one thing I would say that exporting data isn't as up-to-par as it could be, but that's only hindered by the amount of data that they provide. If you know what you're looking for you shouldn't have any problems with the tool. The interface makes it easy for beginners and advanced users, but I feel like there may be easier-to-use interfaces out there. However, it's not hard to figure out. Like I said, if you know what you're looking for this tool is great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd recommend trying out at least one other backlink research tool just to compare the power and ease of use to Ahrefs. Maybe this tool isn't for everyone but it's functionality and interface make it worthwhile to me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you took a dip in SEO rankings, it's easy to jump into Ahrefs and see if maybe an entire domain stopped linking to you or maybe if it's a link issue at all. The status of links and domains is very useful. The competitive side helps identify opportunities as well when tracking what your competition is doing. The new content explorer seems like a great tool to use, although I haven't jumped into it too far yet. The product, in my opinion, keeps getting better. It's helped us pinpoint problem areas and opportunities.

"The Most Accurate, but Not the Most Comprehensive, Backlink Tool Out There"

What do you like best?

AHrefs manages to be very up-to-date in terms of links that are actually there. It is rare for AHrefs to say that there is a link, but the link has since been removed.

What do you dislike?

AHrefs isn't always the best at finding new links that have come up. Other tools tend to find new links better and faster than AHrefs, but then they tend to keep the links in the list longer than the links are actually there.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't rely ONLY on AHrefs, but it can definitely be your PRIMARY backlink analysis tool. As a note, AHrefs isn't always the best at detecting whether or not a link is sitewide.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The big problem to be solved is removing bad backlinks from client's backlink profiles. In order to do that, you need to have a good view of the client's backlink profile. AHrefs tends to be the best way to do that, though we don't use AHrefs by itself.

It's non-technical self-explanatory usability. I began using this product before knowing what it was capable of. With that, it was simple to explore the product and self-teach!

I think that there are some pretty standard features that different subscription tiers nullify. So, depending on how much you pay, you might not have access to certain information. This is obviously common, but I think a restructure of what certain tiers have access to is in order.
