    I've had a 90 day trial for their pro program that's just about to run up and I'm trying to figure why I would pay $100 a month for this. I can get most of the info out of an analytics program and the rest with a free tracking program.

    I haven't seen anything in their analytics reports that make me think I should be paying for their service. Is there something obvious I'm missing?

    I would say no in general since their information is generally inferior to their major competitors. Their aggregated statistics like mozRank are inherently meaningless and offers little value if you truly understand. And for newly built websites launched in betwen pagerank updates, it's completely useless. You could rank a site by *their* metrics in lacking trust/authorty/backlinks yet ranks completely fine because they don't even know 75% of your backlinks exist.

    Some people do find the tools useful and they received a large investment recently so I'm sure the technology will improve since it hasn't been worthwhile post Yahoo site explorer shutting down, killing a large volume of their data, however I personally believe you can spend the money elsewhere on other tools.

    Thanks, guys. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't crazy. I've got multiple clients ranking on the first page for all of their terms, but seomoz (SORRY! moz) tells me their domains have no authority and are filled with errors, warnings, and "notices." I understand they are trying to provide full analytical data, but I would just like to see something that is unique.

    I used them for a year or so, but find better value in ahrefs. I might use Moz again when my budget rises, but as long as I need to watch my expenses they are none of the must-have services.

    Moz is good for on page stuff but I found it average for off page. I'm sure they only show 40-70% of the total links.

    I only use it for their keyword difficulty tool, and identifying on-site errors. not much else.
