Any online brand needs search engine optimization (SEO) as it offers them the most viable and cost-effective way to reach customers organically. It also bears more significance while searching for a service or product online, as users are more likely to choose one of the top suggestions that the search engine provides them. To this end, numerous content creators use SEO tools to improve the appearance and positioning of their web pages in organic search results. However, due to a lack of SEO knowledge, many worthy content creators fail to enhance their websites’ traffic; instead, advertisements take up a significant portion of many search engine results pages (SERPs).


A Singapore-based company—Ahrefs— eliminates this disparity by offering innovative SEO marketing and analytics tools, enabling worthy content creators to monitor and increase the organic reach of their brand. The company’s tools allow its clients to check backlinks, keep an eye on competitors, perform keyword research, and identify new content ideas for robust marketing strategies. Tim Soulo, CMO at Ahrefs, says, “Quality information deserves a higher rank in Google search and gets the attention it deserves. So, we provide all the necessary tools content creators need to optimize their websites and start observing traffic quickly.”

Established in 2010 by Dmitri Gerasimenko as a simple backlinks Index, Ahrefs has transcended into a major SEO marketing and analytics provider. While the company could easily get venture capital funding, it is still bootstrapped to help genuine content creators obtain the traffic they deserve. “Big Internet companies are making suboptimal decisions to push market valuation.

We see more and more ads in search results and not enough care for the people who are actually creating content. Ahrefs intends to stay independent and focus on helping people to make useful content and to make it more accessible with an ultimate goal to achieve a search engine sharing profit with content creators,” mentions Gerasimenko. To this end, the company renders its freemium entry-level product, Ahrefs Webmaster tools, that empowers content creators with SEO knowledge, enabling them to perform an SEO audit of their website and ensure that the website follows all the best practices recommended by Google for improved traffic. Once the website continues to scale using the Webmasters tools, Ahrefs offers them its advanced platform that features sophisticated tools and strategies, allowing content creators to take their websites to greater heights.

One of the critical elements that make Ahrefs a leading player in the SEO industry is its backlink database that gives its clients an excellent picture and understanding of those currently browsing their website and those visiting competitors’ websites. Besides, the company also has a robust keyword database that enables its clients to tailor the content in accordance with search traffic from Google. And most importantly, the biggest asset for the company is its lean team of exceptional professionals that provide competent support for clients throughout their SEO journey. “The biggest display of our team’s efficiency is generating almost one million dollars in revenue per employee,” mentions Soulo.

With its robust tools, strategies, and a very proficient team, Ahrefs has helped thousands of content creators, including some of biggest corporate firms such as facebook, Netflix, Uber, and more increase the quality and quantity of their website traffic. A testament to Ahrefs’ efficiency is the success story of Cloudways, a managed hosting provider that wanted to track the progress of its campaigns and keep a close eye on its competition. Ahrefs offered them appropriate tools to optimize the already deployed content and discover new ideas for trending topics, thereby helping them increase their business KPI.

Strengthened by such success stories, the company aspires to overhaul its search engine while improving its SEO platform in order to help content creators accurately optimize their websites. “Our aim is to simplify and make SEO accessible for every website owner, and we will continue to innovate our solutions in order to realize our goal,” concludes Soulo.
