Probably the best SEO tool on the market

2018-02-13

Pros

It's a fantastic tool for every type of SEO. From keyword research to competitor and keyword tracking, keyword alerts to website auditing, Ahrefs has you covered. They have a really great blog and social channels/ private (invite only) groups that are really helpful and help you to learn more about SEO in general and their tool. The features are ever-evolving and really tiny but important updates are always being added - they listen to their users.

Cons

A content analysis feature would be great.

Their keyword explorer tool is unmatched

2018-01-19

Pros

The ability to see keyword volumes and click-stream data is highly valuable for my team because this shows us the probability that our articles will generate clicks.

Cons

That is probably more of a critique for us to consider upgrading our plan but Ahrefs is already a big expense for us so it may not make business sense for us to upgrade just to get more search queries.

The Ultimate SEO Tool

2018-06-19

Allows us to perform basic and complex online marketing tasks from in-depth keyword analysis, keyword tracking, backlink analysis, site audits and more.

Pros

We use it for content marketing planning, SEO optimization, PR link outreach, competitive analysis, in-depth keyword analysis, keyword monitoring and more.

Cons

I wouldn't say it's great for an SEO beginner as you need a fundamental understanding of SEO and online marketing to be able to get the most out of Ahrefs. Also, Ahrefs isn't cheap, but for an agency who uses it every day, it's worth the money for us.

Good and expensive

2017-09-08

Pros

I understand, that it needs a lot of resources to crawl all the web and digest all the data collected.

My one stop for SEO research

2017-12-06

Pros

You have all you need from rankings to linkbuilding analysis and keyword research.

Cons

Also, even on the first two paid plans you won't have the full list of all keywords you rank for in top 100 - first plan shows only up to the third page, second plan adds 2 more pages, which is odd, considering the abovementioned competitor lets you see all of your keywords on the standard plan.
