    Hey All,

    Essentially, my question boils down to the legitimacy of the Ahrefs.com URL and domain rank, and if they relate to Google credibility.

    I have a site with a URL rank of 34 and a domain rank of 52, which I thought were pretty good for a very low competition niche. Another metric is their actual Ahrefs rank, and I currently sit at 812,471st.
    The site ranked first for this keyword is sitting with a URL rank of 11 and a domain rank of 49, and an overall rank of 2,494,341st.

    I am currently ranked 9th, and have been for quite some time (almost two weeks) and I am perplexed about if these rankings actually matter, and if they don't, what is a better measure of importance that I can check with Google?

    It also might be important to note that according to Webmaster Tools, I only have 140 backlinks. According to Ahrefs, I have 302. Could this be an issue with delayed updates with Google?

    Thanks for the input

    It's not a rule made by google, so it doesn't matter.
