Ahrefs notes/limitations


  • One thing to know about Ahrefs API: it only provides data for its Live Index, not for the Fresh Index (index of recently live sites, not re-crawled).
  • Unfortunately, Ahrefs' API doesn't provide precise KPIs allowing DashThis to import your keyword ranking data into your reports. We are constantly following the updates made by Ahrefs in order to eventually add those metrics once they are available in the API.
  • There is no historical data in Ahrefs’ API. Don’t worry we got your back! We keep your historical data in the system starting at the moment you create any Ahrefs widget, so your number can evolve over time.
