At Coveragely, we do not believe that any one metric is better than the other. They each have their pros and cons and to see the full picture of a domain’s authority, you need to compare as many data points as possible.
For this reason, we provide you Majestic and Moz data with all Coveragely accounts – even free ones – and you can expand the dataset by connecting your SEMrush and Ahrefs accounts with 2-3 clicks.
The main trust / authority metrics that we use as part of our day to day work – and the metrics we show in Coveragely can be found below along with a brief explanation of each.
