Pros: The best thing about Ahfers is you will get everything related to competitors & backlink analysis. It includes few most amazing features like comprehensive backlink data, Overall organic keywords your website is ranking for, Overall organic traffic with history, Keywords explorer for detailed keywords research, Linkintersect to see which links your competitors are having and you don't, and many more.

Ahfers is also one of the most user friendly tool I have ever used, it has got everything which every digital marketers need. You can find hundreds of links opportunities by using content explorer which shows you which content is shared the most in your niche. You can reverse engineer your competitors backlink by the cocomprehensiveis of competitors backlink and acquire them.

Cons: The only thing I like the least about Ahrefs as they didn't provide any Free search trial, while few of the other similar tools will give you few serachs in a day but in Ahrefs you won't get anything for free NOT even a single search.

Overall: I am working as SEO manager in one of the top-rated Digitial Marketing agency in India and I am using Ahrefs since last 2 years now, this is one of the tools that I am using on a daily basis and I really can't leave a day without this tool. It makes my competitor's analysis work so easy, Ahrefs helps me find the best links from my competitors and I have explored what content Gap and some basic distance my client's website is having and can set the campaign accordingly.

This is the must have tool before starting SEO or content marketing campaign.

Pros: I have used several SEO tools like Majestic, SEMRush, and others, but nothing works like Ahrefs. It is one of the most feature-rich tools out there. It is constantly updated and the team keeps on adding new features which keeps users hooked.

One of the best things about Ahrefs is that it crawls and indexes new backlinks really fast. And this speed is still improving. Compared to SEMRush, Ahrefs does a great job overall.

I mainly use it to monitor backlinks, referring domains, and rankings. In terms of rankings, it is spot on. I never had any issues with Ahrefs whatsoever.

Another amazing thing about Ahrefs is their tutorials that show users how they can use and benefit from Ahrefs different features. Besides, Ahrefs blog is one of my favorites.

Cons: 1. It is expensive and when I say expensive, I really mean it - especially if you want to get access to all the features. It is a perfect tool for SEO agencies and marketers.

2. The features and different tools aren't easily accessible or understandable to the users. They should do something about making users realize what they are missing and how they can fully use different Ahrefs tools. Training material and videos are doing a good job but they surely need to do more.

Overall: Ahrefs is one heck of a tool which is evolving. When I started using it, it had limited features and in last 2-3 years, it has evolved into a massive all-in-one SEO toolkit, which is great. If you are an agency or SEO pro and not using Ahrefs, you are not in the league.

Pros: Ahrefs is one of the greatest SEO tool ever made. It can do a lot of things from keyword research up to content promotion. This all-in-one tool is my main weapon and it helped me gain higher rankings. Here are some of its advantages.

1. Doing keyword research is fast and accurate. Their keyword explorer tool has a lot of data to determine if the keywords are good. It shows the search volume, trend and the reliable keyword difficulty feature.

2. Accurate rank tracker. It also shows the estimated traffic that I am getting.

3. The site explorer tool. I'm using this extensively. This is what makes Ahrefs a powerful tool. I can input any URLs and it will provide me with some useful data like the keywords I am ranking, my site's backlinks and referring domains and the estimated traffic.

Cons: The pricing is somewhat expensive for beginners and to those who have limited budget. But believe me, the higher price tag is all worth it.

Overall: I use it everyday to keep track on my sites and my competitors.

Pros: Using Ahrefs with SEMRush is what it all takes to get the overall deep understanding of the SEO for the project you are working for. Ahrefs is invaluable tool when it comes to the backlinks and their tracking. Apart from having the extensive SEO capabilities (tools, features, functions, etc - which all of them works very well) this tool is my number one go when I need anything - literally anything backlink related. I cannot even imagine analyzing the competitors backlinks or certain amount of them without using Ahrefs. It's the valuable and reliable source taking its permanent place in my SEO toolbox.

Cons: Nothing really. For the things I am using this platform for - it's irreplaceable. The only thing which I have experienced to see is the search volume for the keywords that seemed quite off the real ones. Though, overall, I am very happy with what this platform can provide.

Overall: One of the best SEO tools I ever worked with

Pros: Where to start? If I could only use one tool for the rest of my marketing career, it would be Ahrefs. It can do everything, and it does everything better than all its competitors. I've built my whole SEO strategy on the back of Ahrefs.

They really seem to understand what it takes to succeed with SEO today, too. Rest of their content team create some of the best content on the web, and really show you through their videos exactly how to get the most out of Ahrefs.

Cons: I wish it didn't quickly jump to a prohibitively expensive price. It would work for most individual businesses, but agencies need at least a standard account and if you really want to get the most out of it, an advanced subscription gives you some material benefits, but I've never been able to justify the cost.

Hardly a con, though and am more than happy with what I get at that price.

Overall: I'm a 10x better SEO with Ahrefs

We use it for content marketing planning, SEO optimization, PR link outreach, competitive analysis, in-depth keyword analysis, keyword monitoring and more. Ahrefs can give you a great overview on where your business stands in the online marketplace and has countless complex tools to help you dig into backlinks, keywords, content and more.

Cons: I wouldn't say it's great for an SEO beginner as you need a fundamental understanding of SEO and online marketing to be able to get the most out of Ahrefs. Also, Ahrefs isn't cheap, but for an agency who uses it every day, it's worth the money for us.

Overall: Allows us to perform basic and complex online marketing tasks from in-depth keyword analysis, keyword tracking, backlink analysis, site audits and more. We can also do content marketing planning using the content explorer. It's an agency's best friend.

Pros: You have all you need from rankings to linkbuilding analysis and keyword research. This can easily be your only tool for all of your SEO needs and even SEM research. In 2017, the team seems to have started dedicating more energy to making the tool not only functional but usable, bringing in lots of UX improvements and more visual controls and charts throughout the tool.

Cons: The connection between different parts of the tool and location of all the controls and dials is still something that could be improved. Compared to competition (like SEMrush), ahrefs is definitely superior but it could be even easier and even cleaner in some of the tools. Also, even on the first two paid plans you won't have the full list of all keywords you rank for in top 100 - first plan shows only up to the third page, second plan adds 2 more pages, which is odd, considering the abovementioned competitor lets you see all of your keywords on the standard plan.

Pros: If you have to look for niche keyword and it is not in english, then ahrefs is the place, it has the databank for my country (South East Asia Region) which is awesome. For other keyword service, sometimes you just stuck with google US or the nearest is India. Ahrefs has very large database (look the "our data page") or ask the customer support is your country supported.

Also there's keyword, backlink etc monitoring send via email.

Other than keyword database, you have organic estimation traffic, which is a hit and miss (for my website, its a miss around 2000 user) but nonetheless it is really really good for competitor analysis.

the backlink analysis also really helpful, which for my case goes back around 2014.

Cons: - Well, i paid like a year for lite edition which is very expensive for me, and it stuck like only 25 website analysis (site explore) per day (which is a bum for when you're in the zone making report), there's other limitation but it still provide a very good macro view. The keyword similarities website also sometimes suggest a very ridiculous website (my site compete with Google & Linkedin , in keyword similarities ??)

- there's no free trial, you have to pay just for the trial

Overall: Overal its a good experience, i paid the trial the have an awesome result but after that, try a month or two until you get the whole experience, dont go out pay a year.

Pros: I do a lot of link building and SEO to grow our site's traffic. And there's always this one go-to tool that I have that helps me do the work easily. That's Ahrefs. For the most part, I use this monitor the links we get, to check our ranking, keywords, search for relevant content that I can get a link from, do audits and fix issues and more. It's also very user-friendly.

Cons: Well, can't really think of anything at the moment but perhaps have a better interface on the keyword explorer? That would help. Because at that specific feature, this tool is no match SEMRush. Either way, these 2 tools both have a place in my heart. I just use Ahrefs more.

Pros: When it comes to SEO, Ahrefs is a very good tool. You can grow your blog/site in a few months if you use Ahrefs dedicatedly. It has tons of features and some are, keyword analysis, competitors research and site overall SEO checkup. You can discover the keywords your site ranks for, you can also get to know the most active page of your blog.

Also Ahrefs help you know your competitors and keywords they rank for. It also gives you access to possible low competition keywords you can develop and rankings on.

Ahrefs is perfect for sites and blogs looking to grow. It's also cool for start-ups as its free trial account can give you a limited access to its features/services

Cons: The pricing is a big turn off. No great for start-ups wanting to increase access to functionality as you may not have the funds to increase your plan and limit to usage.

Pros: The title of this review says it all: I feel Ahrefs is the best SEO tool in the market. It's not so much that it has so much more functionality than Moz or SEMRush but it just feels more intuitive and looks better. The whole set up and how different functionalities work together makes a lot of of sense. I'm not much of a hardcore SEO-marketer, I mostly use Ahrefs to spy on competitors, check their traffic mix and backlinks (see what's working for them) as well as in-depth keyword research to uncover product - and market opportunities. Checking up on what people are looking for on Google is very powerful and Ahrefs is my superweapon to read the market's mind.

Cons: Probably the pricing. This baby is not cheap. Then again its competitors aren't really cheaper and you do get a lot of value for your money, if you know how to leverage the information the application hands you. To that purpose, Ahrefs has a great content to guide the way.

Pros: I use Ahrefs on a daily basis to analyze backlinks, research competitors, and do keyword research. Ahrefs is a tool I can't live without to improve SEO on my website. I've tried a lot of similar tools and Ahrefs' data is by far the best.

Cons: Ahrefs is definitely price, but most backlink database tools are.

Overall: Ahrefs is expensive but if you know how to use the tool correctly, it easily pays for itself in the data you can't get anywhere else.

Pros: - Quality SEO software

- Great back link analysis

- Suggestion of how many quality back links needed to rank

- Easy keywords rank checker with previous historical data

- Very good keywords explorer along with questions on specific keywords which one can write an answer

- Email notifications for keywords movements and new keywords

- Website health check is very very good

Cons: The cost : For small merchants like us they should have separate plan.

Overall: We have been using this software for our SEO planning and found this tool really helpful to do back link analysis of our own site and as well as that of our competitors. We can filter the back links based on DA and many more parameters. We have fixed many of our website issues with the help of website health checker tool.

Pros: Whether for my own site or my client's website, Ahrefs is my main SEO software. I'm a Web Developer but developed interest in SEO three years ago. Ahrefs is easy to use and it has improved a lot since the first time I used it. Tracking keywords are very accurate and it shows monthly search volume. Doing keyword research is actually easy.

What I liked most about Ahrefs is their Site Explorer feature. It has a lot of SEO data that I need in order to achieve higher rankings and what my competitors are doing.

Cons: I have a budget for a monthly subscription, so for me, there are no real disadvantages using Ahrefs. But for someone who has a limited budget, he may find that the price is quite high.

Pros: My favorite marketing tool. And thanks to the platform, I can see what makes the competition, which allows us to improve what we lack. This is also a fairly simple tool to use, so you can immediately get many benefits. An excellent opportunity to view received and lost links for certain periods of time or specific days. With this platform, we track the backlinks of competitors, it's also great to have a history of competitors' growth. I also get some content ideas from my research tools. In addition, I have the alerts that let me know when my name is mentioned on the Internet.

Cons: I would very much like to have more features available in the free version. Very little you can do without switching to paid service, and the fee is quite high. Also, I find it difficult to understand where in the interface to manage the settings of e-mail.

Pros: Ahrefs is excellent in terms of providing in-depth statistics on a website. Right from keywords to competitor analysis, it makes SEO, Link building and outreach fun for the businesses.

Cons: The cons is yet to be found, but as a user I think it should provide limited free trial so that a user can take a tour of their excellent services.

Overall: I started using Ahrefs as a novice, but the frequent blog post on different categories like SEO, Link Building, Outreach, Web traffic, and keyword research has made me an expert in my field without any formal education. Hats-off to reps for sharing some secret sauces to help the community around.

Pros: - Keyword analysis with Ahrefs is unparalleled.

- I can easily discover high-traffic search terms that are not competitive.

- Keyword tracking enables continued monitoring of keywords (great for outreach).

- Backlink analysis is what it's all about, though, and I spend most of my time spying on backlink sources from other similar businesses.

- Regular 'how-to' videos on YouTube for free.

- Ahrefs blog is one of the best out there for SEO and helps provide practical uses for Ahrefs tools.

Cons: - Much like other SEO/Marketing tools and software of this quality, the price is relatively expensive. It might be fine on an individual basis, sure. But when you are combining Ahrefs with other software/tools it starts to become an insanely expensive kit.

- It's complex, which could be difficult for some. However, I found that their blog and YouTube content helps pick up the software and quickly become an expert.

Overall: Ahrefs is nothing short of exceptional. It's packed with features that can have an immediate and lasting positive impact on your business.

I discovered Ahrefs after they offered an extensive 'Blogging for Business' course that detailed ways to enhance a company's blog. Through the course, I learned how valuable Ahrefs could be for any business.

Pros: It has pretty much everything I need, including a tool bar and plugins.

Cons: It takes a long time to learn how to use it. This isn't entirely the software's fault, it also takes a while to learn what metrics you're even looking for every time you start a new SEO project, but even so, it took a while to learn where everything was, read the feedback, etc.

Overall: I just started learning SEO techniques for a digital marketing company, and while the website it REALLY full-service, and even has a learning section from one of their staff members writing blogs about various SEO tactics you can use, it just takes a long time to learn the tool, in my opinion. I am always wondering "Is there a way to do this?" And then spending a lot of time poring over tabs and the side bar to look and see, and then figuring out how to read what's in front of me.

If you're new to using this tool, don't forget to hover your mouse over things, because sometimes THAT'S where its label shows up.

Cons: My main concerns were price and non supporting of markets I need. But know I accept it's price and this tool also started to support markets I need.

Cons: I don't have a lot of bad things to say about Ahrefs. I wish they were a little cheaper and when I only have one license I often need to spread it around to my team. I need to make sure only one of us at a time are using it and that can be a pain. It's really a pretty good tool, I just wish it was more affordable.

Cons: The US database is very rich, however if you do keyword research by other countries - there is far less information. Unites States is chosen by default.

Pros: The ability to see keyword volumes and click-stream data is highly valuable for my team because this shows us the probability that our articles will generate clicks. Plus, the global site rank feature is great because it allows us to see where our website currently ranks and the recent trend (if our rank has increased or decreased).

Cons: As a relatively new user with Ahrefs, sometimes it's difficult for me to navigate the platform and find things I'm looking for. Towards the end of the month we've seen our "metrics searches" be limited because of our plan. That is probably more of a critique for us to consider upgrading our plan but Ahrefs is already a big expense for us so it may not make business sense for us to upgrade just to get more search queries.

Pros: What I liked most about Ahrefs is that it contains a huge database of backlinks when I checked my site and the sites of my competitor. The toolbar is an easy way to get an overall picture of our ranking, backlinks and organic traffic. With Ahrefs, we were able to track the back links of our competitors and strive for the proper Internet space. This helps us track the backlink profile. It also helps us to "peek" at our competitors from the point of view of SEO.

Cons: The reports generate duplicate URLs from the same domain. If there are multiple back links, there should be an option to filter those URLs. Also, for certain features on Ahrefs Site Explorer, there can a more elaborate description/guide on how to utilize the feature.

The keyword research is pretty accurate and easy to use. It really helps you decide if a keyword is good to try and rank for. It also does a good job of showing the estimated traffic I am getting. I can view the stats of any website pretty quick. They also have a great support team. I notice they keep improving the software.

Cons: The pricing is expensive for someone just starting out who is on a budget. There are free or lower cost tools that can work. But if you have the money go for it!

Overall: This is an amazing tool that helps me keep track of my sites and what my competitors are doing. The keyword research function is great! This tool will definatly help you rank higher!

Pros: If you want to know how your SEO metrics are doing, you can get them from this software, it does the job right, but for us it was stuck in time, and some new futures just passed by them, we did use it for a couple of years with succes.

Cons: The pricing is insane for what it does, you can buy at least 4-5 different softwares with the money you buy one. This being said the futures and tools it provides are not that cutting edge anymore, tons of websites and softwares are ahead of them.

Pros: Whenever you need help with competitor research, finding backlinks or other SEO-related tools, Ahrefs is there for you. Let alone their blog which is full of really informative and helpful content. This gives a feeling they do care about their products and educating their users, visitors.

For example, for local SEO, the most relevant and useful article was on Ahrefs blog.

All of their tools work perfectly.

Cons: The only thing I don't like is that the trial period is not free. But I guess this is justified because of their ranking and your ability to get more than the minimum requirements

Pros: You can check a large amount of sites for ranking factors and backlinks even if you aren't an owner.

Easy to use and follow the site layout.

Cons: It does log you out rather quickly, especially if there are multiple users on a standard account. For a small business providing for multiple clients, it doesn't have a lot of options for multiple campaigns for a small business budget.

Overall: We have just started using Ahrefs, but so far it's becoming a key tool for our company. The keyword explorer helps identify a lot of related keywords for SEO research, and the comeptitior comparisons have helped us assist our clients overnight!

Comments: Ahrefs is the best tool out there if you're serious about link building, analyzing competitors' backlink profiles and keeping a clean backlink profile for your site or your clients. Ahrefs is always improving, they keep adding functionalities and improving the ones that already worked before, but what I like the most about Ahrefs is that they've improved its usability a lot. SEO agencies and freelancers need tools that are fast to use, and Ahrefs is not only the most powerful link analysis tool, but right now is the fastest and easiest to use too. Plus, I love their company blog - lots of useful and actionable SEO stuff.

Pros: Powerful analysis capabilities, usability.

Cons: A bit pricey - but the good stuff comes at a price

Pros: It does a lot, like a lot a lot. You can analyze sites for top keywords, organic rankings, anchors, etc. It really does everything you need. Most other software does one thing or another. Either specializing in rankings or in backlinks, or keyword research etc. But Ahrefs really does it all.

Cons: It almost does too much. If you need everything it offers, then year, great, it's worth the money, but if you only use it for a specific purpose, it's a bit expensive.

Overall: Overall I'm satisfied with Ahrefs, as it's quite accurate, and the amount of data it gives you is staggering

Pros: I'm not sure why I wasn't aware of Ahrefs before I started at my current agency, but I'm glad they use it. The SEO tools you can use for not only your clients, but your competitors, is outstanding. This tool is awesome for backlinks, keyword research and more. It also integrates with tools like Databox. I'm loving it so far.

Cons: Little bit of a steep learning curve beyond the basic dashboard, but it's not too bad. I also can't speak to the price point to say if it's worth the money.

Pros: Ahrefs is super simple to use, the first time I used it for keyword research I was able to have a list of words in under a hour.

Cons: The lists of keywords by category doesn't always make sense, the categories could be more functional.

Overall: Overall I have used Ahrefs to double check any keywords I think I've missed that I should be using and it is easy to learn.

Ahfres for all the in-depth data you need.

Pros: Ahfres offers many functionalities which also means insights into many valuable data. However, if you are a beginner in marketing not everything may seem clear and you may even not be aware of all the functions which are available there. But once you get to know them, the tool is super valuable.

Cons: It's quite expensive. Some metrics may not be obvious and enough explained.

Overall: Very useful but once someone else shown be all the possibilities available.

Pros: The Data patterns and the analytics of each and every website are amazing of the ahrefs. the support is also good.

Overall: 1) Keyword analysis of my clients and me.

2) The idea of the total authority of the websites.

3) The standings of my website with my competitors.
