Ahrefs launched the free Ahrefs webmaster tools. The tool set generously provides SEO data and sets industry standards.
Ahrefs launched a free SEO tool that provides SEO and site diagnostic data. This is called the Ahrefs webmaster tool. I took the test drive of the tool and I have to say it was useful and very impressive with the on-page SEO and off-page SEO data.
What is it:
It is a tool limited to providing on-page, off-page SEO data for a certified site.
Some people deliberately start asking questions on privacy issues and if Ahref wants to use customer data.
So I asked the Ahrtons about this.
1. Is GSC certification only for certification?
Yes. GSC Verification was released a few weeks ago and is a very convenient way to verify a website without adding DNS records or uploading files.
2. Are you currently using any data from free accounts?
3. If Ahref decides to use the data, will they declare it?
The use of anonymous data is an observation only. We are considering the use of anonymous data … and see keywords, status, impressions and ctr.
This is just an idea and we have not tried it yet. GSC data is a low-quality source because it counts bot traffic, which is the traffic estimate provided by any Google. That’s why we say “we can use”.

4. If Ahref Tool decides to use the data anonymously, will they first ask for permission or send a notice in an updated privacy statement?
We always abide by all the rules and are transparent with our customers, especially when it comes to ethical issues.
Aherfs founder and CEO Dmitry Gerasimenko tweeted the following statement:
We do not currently use any data from GSC other than the list of websites for ownership verification. So it may seem weak but it is the best way to explain the state of things. “
Overview of Ahrefs Webmaster Tools
Ahrefs webmaster tools are refreshing and easy to use. Navigation is more clear with data, where you expect data. Data is not more than one to two clicks away.
The generous use of tooltips contributes to a conflict-free user experience. At each step you are wondering what something is, the gray question mark politely provides the necessary details when clicked.
Selecting a light gray color for the tooltip icon also shows how well the interface is planned. The icon does not penetrate into the workflow, contributing to a conflict-free user experience.
Webmaster Tools Dashboard
The device’s dashboard is reasonable. It has a readout of:
- Health score
- Domain rating
- Refers to domains
- Organic traffic
- Organic Keywords
- Ignore the link tool
All sections (except the organic traffic section) can be clicked through the in-depth report. Navigating directly to website information is very easy and clear.
Ignore the link tool
An unapproved link tool is a management tool that helps to clear and maintain a list in an organized way. Users can upload a spreadsheet or add URLs and domains manually.
Data that Ahrefs can use to ignore the URLs mentioned in the report and can also be exported for upload to the Google search console.
Clicking on the health score icon reveals SEO data (200, 301, 404 and 500) related to crawl status, crawl errors and alerts, HTTP status response codes. A simple overview of site crawl success.
The 500 status response code is a particularly important response because it warns you of server or database problems. For example, a properly configured server will start providing 500 response codes.
Ahrefs backlink tool
The backlink tool provides an overview of backlinks and the ability to review specific types of backlinks.
For example, a publisher may reduce the choice of links by limiting one link to a domain or all links from each domain.
Ahrefs Backlinks Filter
- Limits device view to select variables:
- Link type (dofolo, redirect, .gov, etc.)
- Platform (blogs, ecommerce, forums, etc.)
- Language: Hindi
- Traffic (by date)
- Word or phrase
Word or phrase backlink filter
The “Word or Phrase” backlink filter is below my favorite filter. You can enter .org in this tool and filter the backlinks so that it shows you all the .org backlinks.
You can enter the word “resource” and search all sites that add that word to your URL.
Word or Phrase Filter does not contain or contain any words or phrases that you enter.
This is a killer feature that can be used in many ways. This is a powerful way to identify quality or low quality links or to find specific types of backlinks in a profile.
There is a limit to how many URLs can be crawled and how long the data will be stored.
- Monthly crawled URLs – 5,000 per project
- Ret data retention – 3 months
