    Would you better invest in Majestic or AHREF?

    I constantly purchase new domains and i like looking at Majestic but then AHREF have this keyword tracking tool which is pretty advanced. For budget reasons, i would like to keep one only.

    Which one will you choose?

    Majestic is better for domains and metrics. Ahrefs is better for keyword and competition research.

    They are not comparable tools at all so if you need to pick one then base the decision on what you do more of - domain management or competitor research.

    I use both.

    The main difference is:

    - Ahrefs has better crawlers and can find links which Majestic won't find.
    - Majestic can determine domains based on their niche relevancy, which is becoming a must have lately.

    I use both and both have their uses, but if I was to choose one, the Majestic all the way. Despite their retarded updates lately.

    I agreed with Nargil but still i prefer Majestic. And you should try group buy. The group buy other member mentioned is up to the mark. But there some coolest stuff available. And no one will see your search data there. So you can give a try both using group buy. Or else you need both because Majestic has no option to track the keywords.

    if you have a budget buy both of them, Majestic is great with evaluated domains metric ( TC & FC ..)
    otherwise Ahref is better in term of Keywords and tracking Backlinks, as a new website I suggest you to go with Ahref if you don't have a buget for both

    The best way is to use combination of services. I prefer to use Ahrefs + Majestic + Moz or SemRush.
    Each of this services is great for their purposes, but no one provides full details. And only combination could give full information.

    Yes quite sure as they also confirmed it. Because i used their chrome extension to logged in to the website. Benefit of this extension is not holding the search data. But if you create campaign like in Moz or Ahrefs then anyone can see it. I am not 100% sure about it.

    Aside from what I already said though, if I had to pick one personally I'd pick majestic. Also if you do 3 month subscription you can get a good discount.

    Don't waste your time and money on Group buy, they are fking overused, worth nothing at all. Out of 10 times i used, only 2-3 times work, i don't even use it that often.

    It is better that you share your account with 2-3 of your friends, at least it works 100% of the time.
