    We all know PA and DA, but does anyone use UR and DR from Ahrefs? I've found it to be pretty similar. I subscribe to Ahrefs because i think it's backlink db is more accurate than the other services.

    At the moment, I like Ahrefs a lot more than Moz's toolbar and metrics.

    Yeah there was a thread exactly like this and the concensis I remember was Ahrefs all the way. Personally I like SemRush, but I use it for slightly different stuff.

    I generally prefer ahrefs metrics. Same as you, I think their backlinks are way more up to date.
    Having said that, I don't think it makes a vast amount of difference which one you use, as long as you are consistent with the one that you choose to use!

    If I had to pick between the two I would pick Ahrefs.
