    I have opensiteexplorer and it sucks, their index is like a few months old.

    I like ahrefs but it's too expensive for me.

    how is majestic seo's "freshness" of their data? how do they compare to ahrefs in terms of quality? how quickly do their index links?

    Each tool does its best to offer the most comprehensive data possible, however, presently ahrefs seems to be the way to go.

    I'd say that MajesticSEO still has the biggest database, but it's split between their 'historical' and 'fresh' indices and much of the historical index is out of date. If you have the ability to re-check and process the results yourself then Majestic is still ahead of AHREFs IMO. Their new 'topical trust flow' is quite fun too.

    AHREFs has really improved over the last year. I'd say it's almost a match for MajesticSEO in terms of index size; it's smaller but contains less out of date info The main advantage is the interface, they have partial anchor text reports and mostly you can use their reports without too much re-checking.

    So if you want to build a top-notch SEO tool based on the API, then MajesticSEO is still probably your best bet (as long as you don't let users see it which requires some negotiation). But if you just want to look at the reports without having to do the work, AHREFs wins.

    Unfortunately the other services (MozPro/OSE, SearchMetrics, Sistrix, Blekko, Exalead) are not even close.

    I dont have much history with Majestic but they still have many links not indexed while Ahrefs picks them up VERY fast
