    Hello, Everyone
    I'm about to start an amazon affiliate site. I have an active ahref account till May 21 and I want to spy on my competitors. What metrics should I download so that it can be used for future reference until I'm able to afford tools like Ahref, Semrush.

    Check competitors keywords, then download those and also refering domains.
    I set the tool to look at their traffic when looking at results, see which keywords get most traffic.

    ahrefs can definitely allow you to spy your competitor's backlink profile - if their profile has extremely hq direct links from news sites like cnn, then it would be a tough competitor.
    I would also rely on other metrics as well, such as TF>20 and Moz Score, as these are also indicators for hq links linking to your competitor's website.
