    My very first website in my office is opening Ahrefs and checking our service pages traffic. It has become my handy tool to do competitor analysis for finding potential key terms for the B2B and B2C. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

    For me, AHREF is the king tool as i have been using it since 2019, Over the period I have used it frequently for its number of features which allow me to have a top of the line analysis for our competitors, one of the top features i like most is while having backlink analysis i am enjoying to see newly pointed backlinks, and whenever i stuck anywhere so their customer support as always so responsive and helpful for solving my problem.

    And I found Ahrefs to be a wonderful tool for doing these tasks. I have fixed many of the errors I identified through this tool and it has really improved my website's SEO score. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

    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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

    As I said, I've used and loved Ahrefs for years at prior positions. This will be the final position that I recommend them at, and since I doubt they will fix any of this I'm certain we will be canceling this account and moving to a new tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

    The data swings were horrendous twoards the end and big changes in how they estimated search volumes made us not able to rely on the data. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

    Ahrefs is a very-near-complete expert SEO tool suite. For the price you pay and the value you get, you have to be fairly bad at SEO to not get an ROI on your investment. I think one of the great struggles with these tools is an intuitive user experience, and despite how clunky their interface might look, I think they have drawn a very nice balance between functionality and useability.

    The backlink profile is my favourite feature on the platform as is the ability to really filter in and out the keywords list to really find what you're looking for.

    - Cambio por completo la herramienta- Los precios estn por las nubes (Ahora te cobran prcticamente por cada clic)- Hice un simple estudio y ya se terminaron los crditos en unas pocas horas (99 crditos por mes por $100)- Prcticamente se volvi inservible la herramienta a menos que gastes $500 al mes y estoy 100% seguro que as se quedara corta para la mayora de personas.

    This is just another hacker site. They've been hitting our server for over 2 years now (and not just us).

    We use Ahrefs to identify backlink opportunities, compare competitor metrics and we also use it to get an understand of the links gained/lost over a certain period of time. It allows us to quickly identify issues and action items when going over quick metrics on sales calls. Typically only the outreach/social media department uses Ahrefs, however should a penalty be suspected our technical SEOs will run a few reports.
    Their backlink database is still one of the most up to date we've seen when compared to similar tools. The user interface is very intuitive and easy to learn. They provide you with a lot of great information and the ability to set a date range can really help you narrow things down.

    We use Ahrefs on a daily basis, to keep track of all our rankings, to create product descriptions that are SEO friendly and as a general guide for all our search engine optimization data. It is also very useful to optimize blog articles and to target specific keywords that have traffic volume.
    The UR and DR Index are great to measure how the SEO efforts are playing out on a per page (or product) basis. The keywords movement report is very useful as it helps to understand areas that need improvement.

    We use ahrefs in the marketing department to track the backlinks of our website and changes in the backlink profile. We also use it to lookup the backlinks of our competitors to get ideas for getting backlinks.
    Dashboard is very easy to read at a glance and allows us to manipulate data in many different ways to get more insights. Index is fresh (compared to most competitors) and it's easy to see the most recent changes in the number of backlinks, referring domains and see the correlation in the changes of rankings and changes in the backlink profile. Great tool for tracking most popular URLs and understanding reasons of why those pages rank well or bad.

    Our department uses Ahrefs Site Explorer for a myriad of things related to SEO, both paid and organic. I specifically use it to determine whether the influencers our company works with have adequate websites that will create positive linking opportunities for our brand. It also helps to evaluate their social channels too!
    Very Crowded Dashboard. The Color Scheme Is Outdated and Could be More User Friendly.

    Ahrefs Site Explorer is an SEO tool that helps users like me analyze and improve search engine visibility by providing backlink profiles, including referring domains, keywords driving traffic, and the value of that traffic. It bridges the gap between on-page and off-page SEO, connecting the dots between my site's content and the links that have been built to my site.

    Overall: Overall, I think it's a robust tool. I think they do a great job on their blog and other educational material that shows people how to use the tool to the fullest. Writing this review in anticipation of a recession (where clients have already started churning and cutting budget), I can no longer afford this tool especially because there's an alternative that has all the same functionality and results my company needs, for about a third of the price I'm paying now.

    Overall: Is definitely one of the big SEO tools in the market. Although it is pricy, Ahrefs is definitely a must if you're into backlinking campaings. They have unique features that are very useful to perform outreach campaigns.

    Ahrefs is the true workhorse of my agency. It has all the data exactly where I need it to be when I'm doing my analysis. The most used features for me are the top pages for competitors, and the content gap analysis.

    An amazing SEO platform that became a true heavy-weight in terms of crawler and analysis features. Sometimes it gives clear data in cases when Semrush shows zero information on the website.

    Honestly, it's one of the best SEO tools ever. Their keyword research and backlink checker tools are awesome, and I've learned from their YouTube channel a lot.
