Backlinks analysis: new tool by Ahrefs.com
Posted 10 June 2011 - 01:49 PM
I don't know how can you process so many URLs, but your database is impressive.
It is a very good thing that you don't report deleted backlinks, but you omit a few existent backlinks. For example, one of my sites has a PR4 Dmoz backlink, and you don't report it.
Will you display the pagerank of each backlink? Or is it against the Google TOS?
Forum members, check out this spy tool now, because it is a big deal!

This tool is great!
You can easily check your backlinks' status.
It is free or paid?
Why not sign up and try it?
The free version is pretty limited. However, the paid plan is very affordable. You cannot offer such a service for free, since it requires huge amount of hardware, read the previous posts.
This Ahrefs tool has the potential to beat SEO Spyglass and Majestic SEO!
It still doesn't find all the backlinks, so they need a little more computing power.

Impressive. Only thing is that it does not show the PR of the backlinks (perhaps the big G does not allow?)
Yes, a pagerank column would rock! I know that other online services display the pagerank, for example expired domain search services. So you could too.
Scrapebox can retrieve the pagerank of the backlinks, but it would be good if you would provide a method to re-import the checked backlinks into Ahrefs, and this re-imported data would have the pagerank coulumn, retrieved by Scrapebox.
Because currently I cannot re-import the pagerank column into Ahrefs. (Same problem with Majestic SEO)

For subscribed users there appeared a new type of report - Raw Export Report. It enables exporting up to 5 million links for any domains. Users with Starter Subscription may export 1 million links, those with Standard Subscription - 5 million links every month over a subscription period.
Very awesome, showing a PR column would also be great

I LOVE THIS TOOL, but am having a hard time believing it is so reasonably priced for what you actually get.
Running a crawler is not cheap. You have to crawl 70 billion URLs each day to stay up-to date. This requires:
"This is a cluster of 16 nodes, 36 2TB disks and 12 CPU cores each.
Total storage capacity is circa 1000TB, total RAM - 640 GB, overall computing power reaches 2TFLOPS."
And a few programmers, because you have to optimize the bot, and maintain the hardware.
However, this computing power is still not enough, since this tool still cannot report all the backlinks.
So it is a lot more cheaper than running your own crawler I think...
Remember, this tool is not Market Samurai, where they just scrape the backlinks from other 3rd party sources.

Just a few methods to be able to get a list of backlinks for a given domain or anchor text would be huge.

New free option is in the pipeline - trial usage of all paid services. You can build 3 standard reports for 500 links for any domain (not necessarily yours) for free, as well as to export 10000 links through rawexport. These limits are enough to analyse the efficiency of reports and export functioning. If you like the result you get and want more info, you may subscribe and get considerably higher limits.
Any chance of increasing the number of standard reports from 10 for the starter subscription?
