    Do I need a separate tool to visualize Ahrefs data?

    No, you don’t need any other tool to visualize your Ahrefs data. Whatagraph is an all-in-one marketing data platform to connect, organize, visualize, and share all your data.


    This makes Whatagraph a better choice than other data platforms that provide only the connection functionality, so users need to use a separate Ahrefs dashboard to visualize outreach, domain rating, backlink data, and other KPIs. Having one platform to connect, organize, visualize, and share insights from your marketing data saves time and allows faster decision-making.

    4. All done.


    You have successfully created a connection to your Ahrefs API, which allows you to use Ahrefs data in your reports and dashboards.


    When you connect data from your online store to Whatagraph, you can organize datasets to get more granular insights into your backlink analysis and keyword research. You can visualize data in various widgets and share the insights via automated email attachments or live links for near real-time access.

    What others think about Whatagraph

    I made a switch from GDS and Sheets for reporting to Whatagraph, and I am saving literal hours each week on performance report creation. Our small firm actually managed to onboard 2 new clients as a result of all the time we saved on managing data and reporting. The customer service is also really helpful and easy to reach.

    Having active customer support to help fix any issues was a big contributor, but we also really liked the ability to save templates and connect sources to multiple charts/widgets at once without having to edit them individually. And having the grid layout is much easier to stay consistent with than the free form setup that Data Studio has.

    We love Whatagraph - we would definitely recommend and our account manager is great! I love how easy this tool is to use, everyone on the team finds it much more user-friendly than other dashboards. Integration was easy, we sent some example reports to the team who duplicated these for us. We literally had to log in and send it to our clients!

    The tool is easy to use; you do not need to have development resources. Even my junior project managers are capable of making campaign reports in minutes. There are a lot of pre-made templates you can use as well as many pre-made widgets.
