    Is there a good a tool out there that analyzes anchor text in total percentages? Ahrefs does a decent job, but I want to compare it with at least one other tool. Any suggestions?

    Open site explorer is probably the best option, not 100% if you can see all the data with a free account though

    I do have access to the Pro Account, but it does not break it down into percentages. It just tells you how many links are pointing with a specific anchor text in descending order. Or maybe I missed an option for that somewhere?

    Yeah unfortunately free version is good for finding backlinks but it doesn't give you a breakdown of your anchor text diversity. It only shows you detailed information on the top 5 backlinks. I generally use ahrefs to determine anchor text diversity and open site explorer to get competitors backlinks.

    I'm interested to hear what other people have to say - I have been using ahrefs but I would love to compare it with another tool if there is another free option.

    Open Site Explorer + Link Detective does the job quite well for me.

    Ahrefs, the one you've mentioned already, is the best I've found. Does everything I need.

    Other than that, check out Open Site Explorer.

    Agreed, Ahrefs is excellent but open site explorer is also good

    I use Seomoz because I have access to it. I don't think it is as good as some tools for scraping backlinks. I swear, I find more when I use scrapebox.

    My suggestion is find a tool that finds the most, and then download it as an excel file and use that to analyze the data faster.
