excellent features all round, but i think my favourite might be the fact that you can find featured snippet opportunities via the organic search function - you can see those that currently don't have a featured snippet or see which ones are taken by competitors for you to steal Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

nothing - fantastic tool. Maybe a little more generosity in terms of the amount you pay for projects etc but that might be asking for a lot, i understamd that the company will have overheads. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I'm yet to see an SEO tool offer the level of depth and detail offered by Ahrefs. The dashboards are easy-to-understand despite being packed with information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't feel like I'm making full use of all of the features that are available, so surfacing some of the insights I'm missing would be super useful. So when I log in, I can be told exactly what needs acting on – such as pages will slow load times, pages that have significantly dropped in search visibility, or high authority backlinks we have gained or lost.

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

Tracking keyword rankings. Knowing what keywords we're getting getting traffic for for but not tracking – great for doing further on-site optimisation or finding new content we could be writing.

Ahrefs is an online and revolutionary analytics tool that holds different tools such as Link building, Competitors Keyword research & analysis, Track Ranking, Site Audit, and many more. Ahref outcomes solve all your SEO queries with a simple audit or run.

I am a frequent user of Ahref and especially keyword Researching is most authentic and powerful.

Backlinks are an important factor in improving the site so Ahref also provides insight into referring domains. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The tool has a little Complex Interface for beginners they need some training before using it. There are multiple filters that are not working properly like referring domains. One of the cons of Ahref is less Internal link opportunities. It can not show 100 % accurate stats but considered the most accurate tool in recent times. I personally think that Domain Rating in Ahref is not exactly matters in ranking because this rating only belongs to this tool, not for google or bing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
