What do you like best?

Easy to use and easy to do research on site, generate keyword lists and discover backlinks. If you are trying to reverse engineer a competitor site this is a good tool to use. You can discover their top traffic pages, where the links are coming from and what the keywords are. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not sure all the data is 100% correct - some results seem completely inaccurate. It's also very expensive to use after the free trial. There could be better tools on the market that solve the same problems. I wish it could track social media links Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

worth looking at semrush as well Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We want to see how well our content promotion efforts are working. By using ahrefs we can prove our value to clients by showing who is picking up our content and linking. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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 Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If SEO analytics seems overwhelming to you, start with this tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We have a large content development operation, for which we need to monitor the performance of various strategies. This is for news, reviews, advice, and related information about financial products. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
