Ahrefs is the most accurate, but not the most comprehensive, backlink analysis tool that I’ve ever used. What I mean by that is that any link it tells you is there is most likely there, as stated. However, it often does not find all of the links that are out there. It is continuously getting better at finding more and more links, but if you need a comprehensive list, you may want to combine the list from Ahrefs with other tools, like MajesticSEO and Open Site Explorer. You may even want to run the resulting list through SEO PowerSuite’s SEO SpyGlass to get the live information about those links. But, if you are looking for an overview of a link profile, Ahrefs will do that for you without a bunch of additional processing. You will get an accurate list of the most prominent links for the site, even if you don’t get a completely comprehensive list. But, the more comprehensive tools tend to have more inaccuracies in them, particularly links that are no longer there. One great feature that Ahrefs has that the other tools haven’t seemed to incorporate yet is the ability to filter out links that are in your disavow file in Google Search Console. You’ll have to download your list from Google Search Console and manually upload it into Ahrefs, but then it will ignore links that have been disavowed, giving you a much more accurate look at your list of links without having to export links and manually process them. It is a great feature.
- Has a very accurate list of backlinks for analysis - Runs quickly - Supports Disavow files - Can check on competitors easily
- Doesn’t have the most comprehensive list of backlinks for analysis - The uploaded Disavow file applies to all reports, not just the site you upload it for - The tool is one of the more expensive backlink tools
Screaming Frog is one of the easiest to use and most comprehensive crawling software packages on the market. It thoroughly crawls a site with lots of options, including options to extract data from the site for other users, or to check to see which pages have specific types of content. The program is also constantly being updated with new and useful features. Some useful features that have been added in the past year: visual representations of responses and errors, the ability to extract information directly from websites with regular expressions, the ability to selectively ignore the robots.txt file to gather additional information, and more. If you are looking for a tool that will give you a solid view of an entire site with lists of errors on the site in a comprehensive and exportable fashion, this is the tool for you. Here are some of the types of errors it can detect and export: 300 level errors, 400 level errors, 500 level errors, URLs with underscores or capital layers, duplicate URLs, URLs with parameters, URLs that are too long, missing or duplicate titles, titles too long or too short, titles same as the H1, multiple titles on one page, missing or duplicate descriptions, descriptions too long or too short, multiple descriptions on one page, missing H1s or H2s, duplicate H1s or H2s, H1s or H2s too long, multiple H1s or H2s on the page, and more.
- Extensive crawler - Easy to use - Lots of options - Exporting is widely available and covers everything for the premium version - Frequent updates included in the price
- Costs annually to keep using the premium version - Uses up a lot of memory for large sites - Increasing the memory limit is non-intuitive

Now that the basics are out of the way I have to say that I absolutely love the Ahrefs tool. It’s fast and the graphical representations are very easy to understand (even for a novice I imagine.) In this suite you’ll find a Site Explorer, Keywords Analysis, Backlinks Report, Domain Comparison, Batch Analysis, and Competition Analysis tools.More about Ahrefs
