Pros

Ahrefs is pretty much how we gain success with SEO. The tool is so useful for finding keywords and content opportunities, and tracking your success.
It helps us deliver clarity & confidence to our clients about customer behavior in multiple channels. It is helpful for Customer Journey Mapping, Market Research, and Marketing Plan development.
For our agency, we were able to really fine-tune our keywords and find great linking opportunities. If you are looking for a program to capitalize and do the same, Ahrefs is a great place to start.

Pros

One of the great features that I liked about SE Ranking was the ability to track your rankings within City level. It is also very easy to setup and extremely intuitive.
The new design is awesome and easy to navigate. I have all tools in one dashboard, like competitors analysis, keyword research and of course ranktracking.
Very good overall experience. Easy to set up and just keeps reminding you to keep on track and improve your SEO.

Cons

It's just one of these tools where you're having a damn hard time with finding anything you can dislike. If I'm forced to pick a con, I'll go with price.
Our clients can be a bit guilty of wanting to talk about what they want to be known for rather than what they are known for.
It is a very expensive tool and does not have any affiliate program to offer. Even the smallest paid membership is expensive and comes with limited features and limited allowed searches per month.

Cons

The inaccuracy of rankings at times. I would say within the last month it's gotten bad.
I don't think it has a missing feature. Everything works as it should.
Can be slow to update keyword rankings and appears to be stuck.

A must-have tool for any marketing team

It's a must for any marketing team that's serious about ranking.

Pros

Best in class software that is essential for any marketing team that is serious about seo and content marketing.

Cons

There aren't many cons. It is a bit pricey, and the software can be a little overwhelming (which can be a pro considering the vast amount of features)

Ahrefs has a lot of depth!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Ahrefs makes short work of diagnosing ranking issues on page and off page. Definitely a powerful tool.

Pros

As a lead generator, I spend a TON of time doing keyword research. Ahrefs does a fantastic job with finding keywords and keyword phrases that have a lot of search volume with lower keyword ranking difficulty.

Cons

Other than it being a bit pricey, there is very little I don't like about this software. If anything, the first day or two was a challenge learning how to generate and export custom CSV's.

Does a really great job but not that easy to use

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

This tool really helped us improve in terms of ranking on Google. We used to be on the third page and slowly we are heading toward the begining of the second page. (That also depends on Google crawling though). It really does tha job for keywords, for ranking, for relevance.

Cons

It is not for the faint of heart. The UX/UI I find it terrible and all on one page you have to scroll endlessly it feels like. It is so much information at the same time. They should add more tabs, or allow the user to really customize the tool based on their needs. But the end results is great once you know how to use Ahrefs.

Vendor response

Thank you for your review and sorry to hear about your experience with our interface! Indeed, Ahrefs is an all-in-one SEO toolset that might come off as too complex for beginners. We do give our best to simplify the interface by adding tooltips to all of our metrics, collapsible buttons for charts, and in-app explainer video teasers where needed. Externally, we educate our users through our help page (https://help.ahrefs.com/en/), Academy page riddled with how-to product videos (https://ahrefs.com/academy/), and YouTube channels https://www.youtube.com/c/AhrefsCom. Would you mind writing us at support@ahrefs.com the next time you have doubts about how a certain feature should work? Thank you!

My go to tool for keeping track of keyword ranks and optimizing website content

Reviewed 2 years ago

I would recommend this tool to anyone who wants to get better insights on keyword ranking--it is a lifesaver!

Pros

I've tried a lot of tools for keyword research and tracking but none have been as reliable as ahref. It's so simple, efficient, and intuitive to use. I've been using it for over a year now and haven't found any other tool that offers the same level of insight, reliability, and usefulness. It has helped me optimize my website content so that it ranks higher in the SERPS.

Cons

There is nothing that I could think of. Ahrefs has been an amazing addition to our marketing arsenal.

Vendor response

Thank you, Logan! Speaking of keyword rankings, we've launched two new filters for video SERP features: 1. Videos - for large blocks of multiple videos 2. Video preview - where at least one of the search results has a video thumbnail next to it These filters are available across Site Explorer, Keywords Explorer, and Rank Tracker. Be sure to check them out! ;)

It is good, it offers everything and is holistic in its approach. I liked the audit reports & keyword tracking & ranking.

Cons

It is too bulky, there are unnecessary features for small businesses for which they should have more plans, more tiers of pricing. Despite liking it we didn't continue with it because it is too expensive, ROI was not good.

Brilliant tool for SEO's and marketers!

Reviewed 4 years ago

The tool is great and offers a lot for SEO's and marketers - I just wish the pricing was a little lower!

Pros

- There are loads of features to take advantage of - competitor research, keyword research, backlink research, current ranking checks etc!

Cons

- It's pricey! For example, on the Standard plan you only get 10 projects (for most agencies, their client list is much larger than 10) and when you move to the next plan up you're billed $399 per month which is a big jump. When compared to say SEM Rush, Ahrefs is a lot more expensive.

Fast SEO Checks

Reviewed 6 years ago

We have just started using Ahrefs, but so far it's becoming a key tool for our company. The keyword explorer helps identify a lot of related keywords for SEO research, and the comeptitior comparisons have helped us assist our clients overnight!

Pros

You can check a large amount of sites for ranking factors and backlinks even if you aren't an owner. Easy to use and follow the site layout.

Cons

It does log you out rather quickly, especially if there are multiple users on a standard account. For a small business providing for multiple clients, it doesn't have a lot of options for multiple campaigns for a small business budget.

Ahrefs is one of the best tools available to track our website's backlinks and analyze our website's competitors. It offers helpful features such as its Site Explorer, which allows us to see our competitors' keyword positions and other useful data.

It's a complete toolset – one that I use every day.

Pros

Whenever you need help with competitor research, finding backlinks or other SEO-related tools, Ahrefs is there for you. Let alone their blog which is full of really informative and helpful content. This gives a feeling they do care about their products and educating their users, visitors. For example, for local SEO, the most relevant and useful article was on Ahrefs blog. All of their tools work perfectly.

Cons

The only thing I don't like is that the trial period is not free. But I guess this is justified because of their ranking and your ability to get more than the minimum requirements

Thank you for the review, Jon! Indeed, not all data is 100% accurate. For example, organic search traffic is just an estimation of how much organic search traffic your website gets, based on the keywords that you rank in top 100, their ranking positions, and monthly traffic.

The Best SEO Tool for Your Arsenal

This has been the best SEO tool i've used in my 4-5 years in the industry.

Pros

Ahref's backlinking data has been second to none for years. Their ranking data is great for getting a quick pule check for a client site, and being able to quickly export top pages by links and rankings is great.

Cons

Some of their rankings data can be pretty off or slow to update, but that said any third party rankings site should have their data taken with a small grain of salt.

Best for Competition analysis and making a marketing plan

Reviewed 2 years ago

Ahrefs is the best marketing tool that helps us to rank higher on searches by suggesting the SEO weakness of our web property.

Pros

I love competitor analysis and keyword ranking features of Ahrefs. Competitor analysis gives the relative stats that show how better I am than my competitor and what I need to improve to rank higher them my competitor.

Cons

We can connect Ahrefs with our Google search console and the stats given by Ahrefs and the search console are almost the same. Here we are missing the real-time stats as Google Analytics 360 gives.

A Perfect Low cost Alternate to Ahrefs

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Competitor Analysis Tool is Just Awesome, Able to Find all the Keywords of Competitors. Keyword Tracking is Accurate & Perfect. Backlink checker is a cool feature to have. Backlink Monitor Tool is Awesome as it Sends Notifications via Email when we lose a back link etc..

Cons

Expecting Content Explorer Tool, Just Like Ahrefs. Expecting Advanced Filter Options in Competitor Analysis.

SE Ranking

A great SEO tool for small business owners and SEOs on a budget

Reviewed a year ago

It's a great tool! I've had the opportunity to collaborate with their team on sharing feedback and as a guest on one of their webinars. They are always a joy and they are very open to feedback. I'm of the opinion that they are continuously improving and I have an eye on them in terms of potentially switching over my all-in-one SEO needs in the future.

Pros

SE Ranking really has it all. Like Ahrefs, it's an all-in-one offering for functions like keyword research, rank tracking, backlink analysis, and website auditing. In my investigations, their website audit tool has no significant difference with Ahrefs, at a fraction of the cost and with less strict limitations. The interface is very beginner friendly and there are few hurdles to overcome to become proficient in using the tool.

Cons

The keyword research data is just not at the same scale as big players like Ahrefs. That's the one thing that prevents me from switching over to SE Ranking. This is something I'm told they're actively working on, so I'd 100% reconsider my stance if presented with new information about how this has been updated. I would also love to see more automations/integrations, such as Slack notifications if keyword rankings change or when audit results are ready.

SE Ranking

Ahrefs is one of the best when it comes to SEO

Reviewed 2 years ago

We as an organization started using Ahrefs to track backlinks, research keywords, and spy on our competitors. They had a number of YouTube tutorial videos that helped learn the tool very quickly.

Pros

- Accuracy of the tool when it comes to keyword research, tracking ranks, tech audit, etc. is very high. - They have a very good support team that responds in less than 12 hours. - Backlink monitoring is also good. They send email alerts for each new link detected or lost.

Cons

- The only downside is their pricing. It is a relatively expensive tool than what is available in the market.

Amazing Value and Tools

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

I stumbled upon SE Ranking by chance from an email by Search Engine Journal. I can't believe how good SE Ranking is. We have used all the major players, Semrush, Ahrefs, and SE Rankings have nothing to envy them. I think we have found our winner.

Cons

Nothing as of yet to be honest. I'm really happy with it.

So far So Good

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

I have been using this software for more than a year now. It is relatively cheaper as compared to ahrefs and semrush but does the job well. Mostly i use this software for rank tracking and sending reports for my clients. Saves my hours on preparing report.

Cons

There is no GMB optimization feature and some limitations on keyword research.

SE Ranking

Great for keyword tracking - especially for bloggers

Reviewed 2 years ago

SE Ranking provides a simple way to track keywords without breaking the bank. The website audit tool is also excellent for fixing any site problems.

Pros

I like how easy it is to use, especially for keyword tracking. There are also many different plans where you can choose the number of keywords to track, and how frequently SE Ranking updates. Unlike more expensive tools such as SEMRush and Ahrefs, SE Ranking is perfect for bloggers and startups. As your business grows, you can easily upgrade your plan.

Cons

It can be a bit slow when updating data at times

SE Ranking

Gran alternativa a Semrush y Ahrefs

Reviewed 2 years ago

Mi experiencia con la herramienta es muy positiva además de que no para de mejorarla.

Pros

La interfaz es muy cómoda y esta muy optimizada en cuanto a las funciones que necesita un consultor SEO para mejorar el posicionamiento web de un proyecto. Utilizo otras herramientas como Semrush y Ahrefs y la verdad es que SE Ranking no tiene mucho que envidiarles. Además el precio es mucho más asequible. Podría decir que tiene un 10 en relación calidad precio.

Cons

En la parte de informes sería muy bueno poder incluir los datos de la función "investigación de la competencia".

SE Ranking

Flexible pricing allows for a low-cost keyword tracking and SEO suite

Reviewed 2 years ago

You won't have to spend hours sifting through your competitors' websites to find out what they're up to. You can also be notified if your competitors alter their policies. Search engine optimization trends are constantly changing, and this is a convenient method to stay up to date on them.

Pros

There are various ways to tailor a monthly plan to suit your needs, including how many keywords you want to track and how often you want the positions of those keywords to be updated. The use of past SERP tracking is useful while working on SEO projects involving reputation management. For my keyword and backlink research, as well as competitive and organic traffic and paid traffic analyses, I was able to acquire adequate information with the domain analysis tool. SE Ranking is an all-in-one SEO tool that costs a fraction of the price of some of its competitors.

Cons

There may be no backlinks, keywords, or traffic statistics for fresher websites, therefore SE Ranking may not be able to find them. Their database has a lot of space to expand and evolve when compared to market leaders such as Ahrefs and SEMrush. However, this may not be a fair comparison because they are more expensive.
