    I was wondering if anyone has compared the numbers of Ahrefs Backlinks to what Google has for backlinks on your site in webmasters tools dashboard??

    I was thinking of subscribing to Ahrefs but I wanted to see how close they are to Google's numbers first.

    I pulled all my sites out of Google webmaster tools after the first Panda update so I cant check this out for myself.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.....

    Im sure alot of people here would love to know the numbers also...

    I was just chatting with Ahrefs support and they said they have over 32,000,000,000 backlinks in their database, total!!

    One website of mine: 477,929 backlinks through google webmaster tools, 87700 through ahrefs. Referring domains: at ahrefs about half of what GWT shows.
    So there is a huge difference. This one didn't even use much, if any bulk linkbuilding. I suppose ahrefs would have even more trouble finding those bulk, hardly indexed blackhat links.
