How to use the Ahrefs plugin?

The first step to using the Ahrefs is to download it and add it to your WordPress site. When setting it up, the tool has a setup wizard that requires you to link your Google account.  Once the required accounts are added, you can select which pages to include or exclude from the scope.  The ability to disable pages that are not optimized for natural search, such as About and Privacy Policy, allows you to actually see your search engine performance scores.  You also have the option of configuring the tool to automatically run content audits daily, monthly, or bi-weekly, as desired. Content audit can take a bit of time due to multiple executions at once to deliver flawless result.  Indeed, the audit process uses several Ahrefs APIs, Google analytics as well as the Search Console of the website in question. Even during analysis, you can view the report using the blue button at the bottom of the progress bar. At the end of the analysis, you will be shown a report with graphs that summarize the performance of your web content. The report first contains a performance score, of all authorized web pages, expressed as a percentage. Next, you have the summary of the suggested number of clickable items per action. When you scroll down, you’ll find a list of posts and pages with additional details. The tool provides different action suggestions according to each page’s performance based on important metrics like keyword ranking position, amount of traffic, and number of backlinks.  Here are the categories of suggestions:
  • Do nothing: this statement will be made to you if your content is in the top three results for the keyword you want to target;
  • Update: This category is for the page that ranks 3-20 for its target keyword and the target term is unique across all pages. It is therefore recommended to optimize it by adding content with similar terms;
  • Merge: You have this attribute when your article ranks in the top 3-20 for its target keyword and the term is not unique across all pages, you will be recommended to combine resources from all articles related into one.
As you can see in the evaluation logic, it is essential to select and approve the correct target term. You have the option to approve or edit each target keyword on each row. Based on data from Google Search Console, the tool only suggests top-ranking keywords for you. If you have a list of targeted keywords defined and up to date in another optimization plugin like Yoast, Ahrefs will automatically sync them with each audit. Otherwise, you need to approve or edit the suggested keywords which definitely have high ranking potential. Once a keyword is edited and approved, it will now be protected from further automatic editing. You must therefore modify them manually. If you want to change the target term, the plugin will suggest other lower ranking keywords and keywords discovered using TF-IDF, giving you an idea of ​​other phrases the page could be optimized for.  If you want to maximize your chances of appearing higher in search engine rankings, Ahrefs Plugin is a great tool that can help you in terms of page content optimization.
