    Is anyone else getting a large difference in the amount of keywords each of these tools finds for the same site? I plugged in my client's site on semrush and it shows the site is ranking for 45 organic keywords. I check Ahrefs and it's showing ranked for 120 organic keywords. Why such a large difference?

    Use both of the services to acquire the ranking keywords and use serpbook or serplab to monitor your keyword rankings.
