      "I have been selling disco balls on line now for over 2 years. I have been getting no referrals from any search engines for ages. Tried Ahrefs free trial for a week and saw what my competitors were doing that I wasn't doing. Had my bother- in- law come in and redesign the website using the tools Ahrefs offered, and within two months we were ranked #1 on dogpile.com. This is a must have for anyone into serious ecommerce.
