"Ahrefs is the most comprehensive SEO & backlink tool I have ever used"


What do you like about Ahrefs?

We have recently shifted to ahref and it was move worth. The accurate information which it provides for keywords analysis and backlink analysis is great. It has helped us to identify the best keywords to work upon and also find our competitors and see their backlink profiles and build backlinks for our company. Using this tool, we have seen improvement in our traffic and online authority. Moreover, the site explorer feature help us to find all issues in our website and resolve them.

What do you dislike about Ahrefs?

Ahrefs is a map to the future, because it’s not a direct representation of where you stand right now, but more a helpful tool to know where you’re going. At least that’s what I’ve found on the organic side. The data tells me if I need to continue doing what’s working, or if I need to strategize and problem solve.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Ahrefs solve?

The best problem we’ve solved with ahrefs is the ability to identify our blog posts that are gaining or losing ranking, and acting on those terms to help save them or strengthen them as needed. My work is in organic traffic, and we’ve found this approach crucial to our growth.
