    Hi,

    When I was checking some expired domain, Majestic seo some times shows more backlinks but ahrefs shows less and some times ahrefs showing more backlinks than majestic. Which one we should consider ?


    Thanks & regards

    They are both as inaccurate as each other. They only show what they see which is not the whole internet.

    They are great for getting an idea of the type of backlinks a site has or to compare domains but no service will be able to tell you all of the backlinks a site has.

    Well Google could get very close but they are not going to ever do that.

    I use ahrefs mostly but I cross check in at least 3 site explorer including moz. I found that ahrefs data is more accurate most of the time. For one, they detect deleted links faster than majestic IMO).

    I use both when checking expired domains but rely more on ahrefs to check links. I use Majestic for the TF CF

    Ahrefs is a little better for my uses. Used Majestic before though, they're fine if you can get them on trial.

    I try both of them. Ahrefs is better for me than majestic to check the back links.

    Ahrefs is really the biggest and the best. You would end up getting all the info you are lookng for on Ahrefs than on Majestic.
