Essential Tools Every SEO Needs – Majestic & Ahrefs Tutorial

My Majestic SEO and Ahrefs domain explorer review & tutorial will teach you everything you need to know to get the most out of the software.

Both tools were heavily used in my SEO campaigns over the years and are 2 of the most essential tools that any SEO needs to have in their inventory.

A lot of people have been asking me what these tools are used for? How do I correctly use them? So what better way than educating you about the ins and outs of both Majestic SEO and Ahrefs.

Literally, crush rankings when correctly utilizing these tools! (car represents your competitors!)

Understanding a natural healthy site


Natural SEO Site

Throw the link into Majestic and check the citation and trust.
If 20 Citation and Trust flow OR over = Happy days
If under, be cautious and keep exploring


Backlink ratio

Referring domains > amount of backlinks

If site has 10 referring domains and 20,000 BL, there may be something up.

Check anchor text for spammy words.

What happened?

Google has updated their algorithm, with what people are calling ‘Penguin 3.0’. They are de-indexing spam which means if you have spammy sites linking to your money site, the backlinks will drop. If you backlinks go down, especially if you have a lot, your site will most likely fall in the SERPs.
