Is ahrefs the way to go or are there other alternatives that are better?
I personally think that you shouldn't rely on one tools. I always do crosschecking in 3-4 other services.
Other than ahrefs you may try majesticseo and opensiteexplorer.
Majestic SEO or Scrapebox.
Your question is similar to asking which exotic sports car is the best? Lamborghini (Open Site Explorer); Ferrari (Majestic SEO) or Porsche (Ahrefs)?
Tough decision, my suggestion is to test drive them all!
If you want to test drive the Lambo, let me know (send me a PM) , I can give you the keys for 90 days free
I use ahrefs and seo spyglass.
Opensite gets updated about as often as 30 days...
Ahrefs might go AWOL on you for 48-72 hours at a time and have problems picking up spam links.
Majestic - I never fucking understand why it fluctuates so much compared to opensite/ahrefs.
Ahrefs has been my favorite tool next to http://SERPWoo.com
I agree that you should test-drive them all, but in all honesty you might as well jump on ahrefs and know you're getting the most regularly updated link checking tool. I use them all, but ahrefs is definitely a difference maker.
SERPWOO is a baller tool which you may or may not have use for, but nonetheless check it out.
Ahrefs would pick up links quickly and report the majority of them. Next would be majestic, open site explorer is lazy and does not report spammy links.
I always prefer https://ahrefs.com/ and http://www.ranksignals.com/ to check backlinks.
Ahrefs and Majestic SEO is more than enough for me, with more number of tools the amount of time of analysis just goes up exponentially.
Other than Ahrefs, Majestic SEO and open site explorer are the best and popular tool to check backlinks.
Ahrefs is the best
Ahrefs Ahrefs Ahrefs. Period.
i like opensiteexploer
I use OSE and I try to get used to Openlinkprofiler.
Ahrefs and Majestic SEO are best tools IMO. Also, my favorite.
I use open site explorer.
I use aherf, Majestic SEO, opensiteexplorer.
The 1st and 2nd are better.
It is good to use multiple backlink checker tools/software. This is just to get a general idea of how many indexed backlinks you have. The ones that are mentioned in this thread are
This are the most popular tools which i used to check backlinks.
Open Site Explorer
