Hi guys,

Like all of you at some point of time, I am confused. I did SEO work before some years but now I see that everything has changed. What has remained the same is the value of ON-PAGE and keyword search.

While I am doing keyword research, I am finding different data between different services. In my example let's say I am looking for keyword "xyz"

Using Semrush keyword difficulty is 84 from 100, in ahrefs it is 4 from 100 and keywordrevealer is 54 from 100.

I know that ahrefs has biggest data-set among all other services but semrush is not a small thing as well and difference between these two is huge!

which one would you think is better to use ahrefs or semrush or do you have any other service that is proven to you?

      The problem is that when you read blogs from ahrefs they are the best when you read blogs from moz they are the best too. All blogs talk in data which are not available for us, they could makeup those stupid things and all what left for us is to trust. This is why I am asking here from someone who is getting real results from keyword tools and who is active in the field.

      In terms of data, ahrefs has the biggest database, i think they are the best in crawling

    Ahrefs seemed so serve us well. Wow, I did not think it could have such a huge difference. Will have to take a closer look myself for sure.

    Difficulty level is just a subjective concept. Don't be panic with the high score of difficulty. If everyone see it difficult, less people will work on it, then it will be easy again.

      It is not subjective and what you are calming is not true. Keyword analyses are the first step and in my opinion the most important step. In this phase is all about taking right direction. I just wanted to have some opinions of people who have real life experience and if ahref data are real.
