Integration with Ahrefs metrics

Update – 28th March 2018 – we just added Top 10 Anchor Texts.

A few months ago we added Ahref’s Domain Rating and Ahrefs Rank to our database and promised to add more Ahrefs metrics based on customer feedback.

Well – we’ve finally added most of the metrics that our customers have asked for and are going live with it today

  • Top 10 Anchor Texts
  • Total Backlinks
  • Total Referring Domains
  • Total Referring IPs
  • Total Referring Subnets
  • Total DoFollow Backlinks
  • Total NoFollow Backlinks
  • Total Sitewide Backlinks
  • Total Backlinks Not Sitewide
  • Total Text Backlinks
  • Total Image Backlinks
  • Total Redirects (Backlinks)
  • Total Canonical (Backlinks)
  • Total Gov Backlinks
  • Total Edu Backlinks
  • Total Internal Links
  • Total External Links
  • Total Number of domains linked

You will be able to see the following metrics in the Expiring, Expired and Archive sections. We will be getting these metrics for only the new domains in the Crawler and My Domain sections i.e. old domains in the Crawler or My Domains will not be getting these metrics.

Initially we will be getting these metrics only for domains that already have some minimum Trust Flow and Domain Authority. This is done to keep our API costs low. Eventually, we will reduce the minimum level require for TF and DA.

By default, we show only the Ahrefs Domain Rating and the Ahrefs Total Referring Domains in our domain table. However, you can add any of the above metrics to your domain table by using the customize columns feature.

You can see the top 10 Anchor Text for any domains by hovering over the new Anchor icon as shown in the screenshot below.

If you add the Anchor Text column to your data table, you can see all the anchor texts for all the domains in the table itself. Do note that this increases the height of the rows in the table that have anchor texts. See screenshot below.

You can also search on any of these metrics from our Advanced Search. Since we have so many metrics now, we had to remove the Social metrics from the Advanced Search page to make way for Ahref’s metrics. We have also added a separate widget for “Anchor Text”.

Hope you guys have fun with all the new metrics. In case of any issues, or questions, or anything else, feel free to email me at

Happy Expired Domain Hunting.
