ile Ahref webmaster tools are free, both give the details about your site then why should one pay for Ahref?

What will you get in Ahref Paid version that isn’t available in Ahref webmaster tools?

What is the difference between Ahref & Ahref Webmaster tools?

My personal favorite feature of this SEO tool is it gives you insights about your competitor sites as well.

Ahref has something called Link Intersect that you can use to spy on your competitor.

Just put in their link & it will show you all the SEO & Site diagnoses data about their site.

Like – how many keywords they are ranking for

How many backlinks do they have

You need to add your site, verify the ownership so that you can get the SEO data about your site

To do this you’ll have two options

Either to import the data directly from Search Console or if you wanna do it manually.

Connecting Ahref webmaster Tools & Google Search Console

The reason I insisted on you to use the same email id as that of your google search console was for this reason only

Having the same email id for both Ahref webmaster tools & search console makes the process super simple

Here I’m gonna click on Import

Now you need to allow access to your google search & analytics account

Here it will show you all the sites that are connected to your google search console, you can select the those you want to use, or by default, all the sites will be imported

also at the bottom will be the data of the websites that you just imported from the search console

let me do a test search

This is how the results look like

I’m sure you might have noticed I have blurred the domain names in images the reason for doing so is

I have set this account for my client & these stats belong to his site so, it won’t be fair to share the domain name with you guys.

I was setting up this account, felt like it would be helpful to you so wrote this blog post
