  • I’m currently using Ahref, this tool is way better than Magesticseo & Semrush from my experience. Sure Semrush offering too many features but we can find the same in Ahref.
    In other hand Moz is very different from these two, but Ahref updates in a daily basis, so data delivery is fast.
    Thank You

    • You are right, Abhilash. Ahrefs is so great, but still there are some needs where other alternatives come in.

      Thanks for visiting!

  • Hi Hussain,
    Good to read this wonderful review, yes, peeping into some of the details of our competitors are indeed and interesting thing to do! LOL
    I am using Moz regularly and I am sure its one of the best alternatives to Ahrefs. Of course I am also using SEMRush and Buzzsumo too. These are some of the best I know, I am new to the rest of the ones you mentioned in this post. Will surely check them.
    Thanks for sharing this wonderful review.
    Keep sharing.

    • Hi Philip,
      Checking my competitors on these sites is one of my habits too.

      And yes, Moz, SEMrush, and buzzsumo are great ones, great to know that you found new tools to check here 🙂

  • I have mixed feelings about the whole concept behind SpyFu because it sells on the fact that we can use our competitors hard-work and research to our advantage. The real problem can arise when we realize that our competitor actually screwed up 🙂

    • Most of these tools above provide some data about our competitors, for me that’s great thing. knowing the competitors data is not everything, yet there are big home works to do, to stay ahead of your competitors, and the one who is ready to do what it takes to get there is the winner for sure.

      • Yes, I agree with you on the home works part. For me, the true beauty of today’s market is a vast number of approaches people take and ways they try to achieve success. We can always mimic the results but we can’t mimic the creativity.

        • Indeed, creativity is the key in today’s competition.

          Thanks for your valuable comments, Duke!
