I'm seeing increased "traffic value" across the board.

Tho no big changes in my rankings. So I guess they added more tracked kw's which add up to more $$ according to their estimates.

Anyone seeing big changes in organic stats at Ahrefs after today's update?

what does sem do better than ahrefs when it comes to keyword research and backlinks analysis? (these are the only 2 areas that interest me)

I'm targeting on mobile traffic, ahref doesn't have that feature. Because within next 5 years mobile traffic gonna increased more than 85%

"In the first quarter of 2021, mobile devices (excluding tablets) generated 54.8 percent of global website traffic."

So what you need the most? targeting on desktop traffic related keywords that are dying slowly or rank on mobile traffic??

Ranking on mobile is NO different than ranking on desktop, AS LONG AS your website is mobile-friendly. Ahrefs is just a tool that helps you with data, it's not responsible for how you rank. When you compare Ahrefs with other tools, really what you should be comparing is the data they have - frequency of crawling, accuracy and algorithms. Everything else is secondary, including your "feature". Last time I checked, Ahrefs' data was light years ahead of semrush or any other software.

No change in rankings for me, just some improvements in traffic. Ahrefs playing catch up.

Desktop traffic is not dying. Or if it's dying it's gonna die in the same way in which it has been dying since 2013 when I first heard that expression :)

Anyway, so mobile traffic is where sem has the edge. Not interested then. But thanks for explaining :)

Not true, Just checked my 4 websites. Almost all keywords across the 4 websites whose rankings I am tracking have different rankings on mobile than desktop.

Let me know if/when you people will ever take a look at the actual algorithms, not the shit that is spewed around the web (including this forum).

Agreed. You know some people in www never know these things my friend. and if they get to know then they start to confuse with their own ego of knowledge. They do not want to know about new things. lol. Stone age peoples. That's their limit not ours. Keep working and keep wining my friend.

I also noticed the same. I guess Ahrefs is now a bit more accurate with traffic figures than before. The figure reported by Ahrefs is now closer to the actual numbers.

I've said for a long time Ahrefs traffic numbers are always on the low side and it's often 2-3 times what they show, if you check using Semrush or GSC.
