  • Sales

Boost Your Email Outreach with the Help of these 5 Tools

Ahrefs is the newest entry into the link research tool space. They use their own bot and their own index (Which they state is based on information from a trillion website connections).

It’s a well-known tool primarily used for checking backlinks, but what most SEOs forget to take into consideration is that it is capable of so much more. With their massive data index, Ahrefs is definitely one of the most sought-after SaaS tools on the market.

You can use Ahref to gather your prospects, track your competitors’ links, reclaim links (citations) and for keyword research.
