Ahrefs domain rating

A domain's Ahrefs domain rating is a quality metric provided by Ahrefs that indicates the strength of the domain's backlinks profile relative to other domains in our partner's database on 1-100 point logarithmic scale. This score can be a factor in determining whether a domain will appear on the following lists:

Where an Ahrefs domain rating is not available for a domain, this score will be 0.

Visualising Ahrefs domain rating

In the report interactive, Explore further > Quality metrics > Ahrefs domain rating applies the Ahrefs domain rating palette to all non-dimmed domains. This re-colouring is relative, not absolute, so 'High' means high in the context of this ecosystem (not the wider web), and excludes principal and competitor domains.

TIP You can use the handles in the colour spectrum panel (see quickstart: the report interactive) to focus the palette on a particular part of the spectrum.
