When it comes to backlink analysis, Ahrefs is my #1 go-to tool. I've tested over 25 link analysis tools and none comes close to Ahrefs in terms of index size, freshness and overall usability. If you're serious about SEO, you need Ahrefs.
As part of our job at Authority Hacker, we test every SEO tool out there to try and determine which is the best. Because Ahrefs comes ahead in 99% of the cases, some of our readers are starting to call us biased. Please stop being good at everything: it's hurting our reputation.
Ahrefs is a great tool. The data is fresh, the usability is fantastic
At Outspoken Media, we rely on Ahrefs daily
What I love about Ahrefs is their commitment to speed, design and innovation. The data fresh, relevant, and granular enough to allow us to make very actionable decisions. I love that they've made significant moves to continually innovate and add new features. Not only do they make us stronger as an agency, but they’ve kept the entire SEO software industry on its toes.
We use Ahrefs mainly for its site explorer, and it’s immensely improved how we find link targets. We use it both for getting quick analysis of a site, as well as utilizing its extensive index when we want to dive deep. It's invaluable to have one tool that can do both of those things.
It's in US dollars.
You can upgrade, downgrade, or cancel your account at any time. Upgrade action will take effect immediately, while downgrade and cancellation actions become effective at the end of the current billing period. For the trial, you can toggle freely between Lite and Standard plans at no extra charge.
Cancellation of the trial does not limit account functionality instantly, as you have already purchased either the seven-day trial or one-month subscription. You have access until the end of the trial or subscription period. At that point, your subscription is downgraded to a free “newbie” account with limited functionality.
Yes. If you do not cancel within the seven days, we begin charging you the automatic monthly subscription. A countdown timer on the Ahrefs interface reminds you of the number of days left in your trial. We also send reminder email messages a few days before the next renewal date
We accept all major credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express and UnionPay. We also accept PayPal. For annual payments, you may pay via wire transfer, check, money order or purchase order.
Every time you use any Ahrefs tools you use some of your monthly data rows. An average report costs about 800 rows, which means you can run approximately 6,000 reports per month with the Lite plan. You also use data rows when you export raw data. Say you need to export 10,000 backlinks — that would cost you 10,000 rows.
All Ahrefs plans include access to ALL of Ahrefs' tools with the stated plan limitations. We do not have separate pricing for each tool.
No contracts, no hidden charges, no setup fees. There is no long-term commitment and you can cancel your subscription at any time.
Please note that our reseller, FastSpring, may apply taxes to the final fee depending on your country. For more info on handling sale taxes for your country, consult this URL: https://support.fastspring.com/hc/en-us/articles/207436686
The 7 USD (or the equivalent in your local currency) for the seven-day trial subscription is non-refundable. For your monthly subscription, you have 48 hours after the transaction to request a refund, but note that we reserve the right to decline that request should we see high activity on your account within this time.
No, it does not. The paid trial gives you full access to our Lite and Standard plans (toggle between them at no extra charge).
You can use one of the Integrations applications developed by our partners. When you use one of these apps, you use rows from your monthly data rows limit.
As a developer, you can build your application using our API and then publish and sell your app to thousands of our users. Follow the link to get more information.

By default Keywords Explorer shows you a cached SERP (top 10 ranking pages) for the most popular keywords. It can be anywhere from a few hours and up to a few weeks old, depending on the popularity of that keyword. You may request to get the current top 10 ranking pages for a keyword by clicking the "Update" button. Once the SERP is updated, we will also re-calculate Keyword Difficulty and Parent Topic, as both of them depend on what pages are currently ranking at the top. Learn more
Whether you put a single keyword into Keywords Explorer or a number of them (up to 10,000) – it is counted as one daily report. Therefore, we recommend researching keywords in batches so as not to overcome your daily limit earlier than necessary. Learn more

This index contains "live" backlinks only. A backlink is considered "live" until we re-crawl the linking page and see otherwise (which usually takes us anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks). Learn more
This index consists of all "live" backlinks plus "lost" backlinks that had "live" status during the last 3-4 months. The link is considered "lost" when we don't find it on the referring page while re-crawling it, or the referring page itself is not available for some reason. Learn more
This index is a record of all backlinks that were seen by Ahrefs crawlers as "live", but not necessary live today. We started recording data to this index in May 2016. Learn more
