Hi

I've always wondered why Ubersuggest shows my site as have more backlinks than Ahrefs.

I'm not talking a small difference here either - Ubersuggest says I have 125,000 backlinks and Ahrefs is saying I have 7,000

That is one BIG difference imo....

Do you know why this is the case?

Cheers
 
Both Ahrefs and Übersuggest have their own crawlers with their protocols.
Sometimes it happens that one crawler have found more links
Every so often some pages don't "recrawl" well sites, and happen to stall too much, inflating the number of links that have actually disappeared.
Some older sites with poor quality crawlers are fooled by redirect links, which others have decided to dismiss them.
So the best bet here, is checking with more detail where those backlinks are coming from and see whether they are real or not and getting your own conclusions for your very specific site.

Thanks, that makes sense - I'll have to dive in and take a look
