    Ahrefs keyword rankings, and SEO health Review: Everything You Need To Know About Ahrefs


    Ahrefs has more than earned its reputation as one of the best blogging tools when it comes to nailing your blog SEO strategies, with a special emphasis on keyword research & competitor analysis. Though to be clear, if you’re brand new to blogging—this tool may be a little advanced (and it’s not free).

    Having started out as just a backlink checker back in the day, many bloggers aren’t fully aware of how powerful Ahrefs has become as a blogging tool. Their most relevant features for bloggers, is that it quadruples as a content research and analysis juggernaut, keyword rank tracker (with historical SERP movements going as far back as when your blog began ranking for its first keyword), a competitor research tool and on-page SEO analyzer. I know, that’s a lot.

    New features still come along quite often and they’re never released at the expense of their most loved features—they still boast the largest index of backlinks of any blogging tool in its class.

    While their Keywords Explorer tool is my go-to these days, Ahrefs really earns its stripes as a backlink analysis tool. When conducting an analysis of either your own backlink profile or that of a competitor you’re trying to learn from, you can choose to view columns like only new links, lost links, no follow, or do follow links. You also can group similar links, see just one link per domain name or view links by platform. The flexibility lets you easily get to the bottom of your queries.

    Here are a few of my daily searches on Ahrefs:

    • Top Pages: This shows you a list of the highest traffic-grossing pages for the site you’re analyzing
    • Best by Links: This view ranks the pages of a site based on the number of backlinks it’s received
    • Content Explorer: Allows you to quickly generate blog post ideas that put the spotlight on trending topics in your space
    • Competitor Research: This’ll quickly show the keywords a competitor site ranks for (along with traffic estimates)

    Keep in mind that traffic estimates are calculated based on a site’s organic ranking positions, their number of featured snippets, search carousels and everything else in between.

    As such, organic traffic reports can be shockingly accurate, even for small blogs.
