    "Ahrefs is a fairly powerful tool that's helpful for solving issues with SEO. For those who are simply looking for free solutions on how to generate more content, it might not be the most helpful - the site's best resources (the tool itself) cost money, and are actually relatively expensive, though quite comprehensive. It's a good tool for solving this problem, overall, but maybe not the best choice for someone who has not tried other methods that are free, but also perhaps less insightful."

    "I can't in good conscience recommend this site. There has got to be less skeevy ways to get free traffic I suppose. This site is like a throwback to the way old torrent sites used to always have malicious looking popups and ads right on the site designed for accidental clicking. I would avoid this one!"
