great and reliable, all the details I'm getting for the last 6 years are pretty accurate ( have no idea what inaccuracy mentioned by andy). excellent for both small one site operators (like I started) and up to biggest agencies.

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.

Pros :

- Has a very accurate list of backlinks for analysis - Runs quickly - Supports Disavow files - Can check on competitors easily

Cons :

- 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

    AWR Cloud support is terrible, even when you need help with something as simple as your account billing. The product has potential, but we're still looking for the best solution. I find the competitor views completely unusable because the competitor names overlap so much that you can't read them, and it doesn't look professional enough for me to pass on to clients.

    SheerSEO is a fantastic piece of SEO tracking software that lets you see how your site is doing online.  The software comes with TONS of useful information that you can use, such as; keyword statistics, keyword density, page rankings, SERP tracker, page referrers, backlink checker, and many more! I’d definitely recommend trying SheerSEO out.  I’ve not been using them for long, but it has become very useful when trying to assess my own SEO strategy.

    I’ve tested quite a few rank checking tools over the years, and always came back to Advanced Web Ranking as a tool of choice. It allows you to store things over the long-haul, the user interface is faster than web UI competitors, and I’ve never had a service outage. It also combines social mentions, Google Analytics, and link data in an easy to use intuitive way.

    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.

    I found the SheerSEO service to be a useful resource to check Google rankings during my free trial period, but I will not be spending my money on a paid subscription once the trial is over and I would not recommend spend their money on a subscription. Since the free trial does not require a credit card, I do think it is worth signing up for the trial period regardless so you can test our the rank tracking service for yourself with your own data.

    We tried out Positionly for a couple of weeks since we were looking for seo software which was web based, easy to use and just does what's important without paying for features we don't need. Positionly is ok but a lot of features are only important on their feature page because when using it they don't work as good, example: - They offer an option to add/save notes to your project. But the styling of the notes will be stripped and you are not allowed to use any line-breaks. Oh and you aren't able to edit once submitted. Not sure about you but I like to keep my notes up to date instead of having to read over dozens and dozens of notes. - Positionly claims you can also track your pages but when you enter keywords related to your pages your website score will go down. For example: if you have 6 pages and the index and you want to focus on 3 keywords per page you will have 21 keywords. You will now receive 'suggestions' to lower your keywords because it's to much. They recommend 4-6 a page.. - The backlinks feature was the most important feature for us but they claim to update it daily, support says they dont update it daily but weekly but in the terms it's stated they are updated once a month. And to top it off; results on the backlink page often displays a backlink as missing/removed but when you look at the specific page results it will be listed there as active...
