    I have ahrefs full version but I dont have majestic. sometimes I try to compare results and always, majestic shows much more referring domains than ahrefs. for example, if ahrefs shows 100 referring domains, majestic will show 170. there is also a lot of "unexplained rankings" that my competitors have. like looking at an ahrefs report, I think there is no way that this competitor is ranking with just these backlinks.

    Have you tried comparing a majestic report vs. a ahrefs reports? is majestic significantly better? should I dump ahrefs?

    I've done a lot of research, mind you a couple years ago and ahrefs was always better by quite a bit.
    What's odd is I have a New York Times link, and it doesn't show up.

    Majestic is now leading the industry that's why LongTailPro also proffered adding it to their database.

    To me, Ahrefs is best tool because it's fast up-to-date backlinks. But You should refer as many as backlink tools. One tool cann't give you complete backlinks.

    Majestic shows links that aren't indexed in Google or Bing. A lot of useless information. Also, TF + CF is wildy inconsistent. Ahrefs all day, you can do some crazy stuff with it.

    Ahrefs finds almost double of what Majestic finds. Majestic is great for CF/TF, but in the past months it's becoming a second MOZ, they need to up their game.

    Ahrefs only offer constant back-linking data with consistent CF & TF. It's preferred over any other tool all day long.
