I love Ahrefs for the quality of their data. They do a great job of crawling the web and the metrics they give you are pretty accurate.
When it comes to backlink analysis, Ahrefs is my #1 go-to tool. I've tested over 25 link analysis tools and none comes close to Ahrefs in terms of index size, freshness and overall usability. If you're serious about SEO, you need Ahrefs.
Ahrefs is a great tool. The data is fresh, the usability is fantastic
At Outspoken Media, we rely on Ahrefs daily
What I love about Ahrefs is their commitment to speed, design and innovation. The data fresh, relevant, and granular enough to allow us to make very actionable decisions. I love that they've made significant moves to continually innovate and add new features. Not only do they make us stronger as an agency, but they’ve kept the entire SEO software industry on its toes.
We use Ahrefs mainly for its site explorer, and it’s immensely improved how we find link targets. We use it both for getting quick analysis of a site, as well as utilizing its extensive index when we want to dive deep. It's invaluable to have one tool that can do both of those things.
Every time you use any of Ahrefs' tools — you are spending your monthly Data Rows. An average report costs about 800 rows, which means you have approximately 6,000 reports per month with Lite plan. You're also spending your Data Rows for exporting raw data. Say you need to export 10,000 backlinks — that would cost you 10,000 rows exactly.
Of course. You can upgrade, downgrade, or cancel your account at any time via your "Subscription Plan" page. Upgrade action will take effect immediately, while downgrade and cancel actions will be effective at the end of the billing period.
You can sign up for a free 14-Day Trial of Lite or Standard subscription. In order to register a Trial account we will ask you to enter your credit card information (we need that to prevent spammers from abusing this feature). You can then use all Ahrefs tools and features free for 14 days and you won't get charged for it. However if you don't cancel your subscription within 14 days — you will get charged for the first month of the package that you've signed up for (but you still have 7 days to ask for a refund, no risk here).
We don't have any contracts so there's no long-term commitment. You can cancel your subscription any time. And we don't have any hidden charges whatsoever.
