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

Searchmetrics is a great all-round tool for monitoring and progressing your online marketing strategy. In my opinion, the most value comes from the visibility index, which not only allows you to monitor your organic and paid visibility, but also that of your competitors, giving you great insights into how well your competitors are doing, and exactly when they hit peaks and troughs. Using this data, it’s possible to do some more digging to understand is there was a particular campaign that helped to give them the boost, allowing you to learn from their success.

Pros :

  • Search Metrics recently gave us an update, which allows you to include Google’s major algorithm updates, so you can easily spot whether a website was affected. This can also come in handy when carrying out a link audit, as you will want to steer clear of a link from a domain that was hit by Google’s Penguin update.
  • Another great feature of the Search Metrics Suite is the ability to use their keyword insights to identify opportunities. By ordering the keywords and by associated potential search volumes, you can quickly see a list of keywords that you already rank on page 2 or 3 of Google for. So by making lists, you can put these keywords on your radar and tweak your strategy to start targeting these keyword topics, by either tweaking your existing content or creating new content.
  • The tool can also be useful for reporting, with some nice graphs that show the spread of your positions, giving a quick snapshot of the average position for your keywords, along with historical data to highlight progress over time.
  • The pricing is quite reasonable, starting from $69 per month.

Cons :

  • The pricing uses a credit system which is quite confusing. While the search visibility index updates are generally quite reliable (same day each week), they are sometimes late with no information to say when to expect the updates. This can be very frustrating, particularly if you use the data for client reports.

    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.

    When it comes to software, research, and analytics for search engine marketers, one company, Search Metrics, stands above the rest. They boast the “largest, fastest database available for search and social marketing.” This means Search Metrics customers are going to have the best access to data, which can be a major advantage in the competitive world of search engine marketing.

    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.
