    Just re-d up on my MOZ subscription for some LOCAL SEO in the CAR WRAPPING NICHE (lower competition than anything affiliate) I'm doing and I've noticed some irregularities from previous uses of the Open Site Explorer. It seems as though the backlink profiles of all the pages ranking are very weak, some having as little as 1-3 backlinks. Are spider spankers becoming ubiquitous, does MOZ just suck now, or are these keywords just super easy to rank for?

    They are clearly missing DOZENS of backlinks.... Why is MOZ like this? What should I use instead for backlink analysis?

    moz paid subscription is a waste of money. they are saying open exp was updated around march 9, but it is not. they just used their old data base.

    Ahrefs, SemRush are good and tend to be more accurate

    To stay the top, you've to keep updating and make sure you offer the best quality service out in the market.
    This is exactly where Moz is left behind and other competitors are taking over.
