Using the Toolbar
The SEO toolbar is a part of Ahrefs toolset. You need an active account at ahrefs.com in order to use most of the features. We also offer few free features in our most recent Ahrefs SEO Toolbar v.2.3.0 release (scroll down to the next section for more information).
Please also note that using the SEO toolbar will spend your relevant Ahrefs account credits:
It takes one “Batch analysis, rows” credit to show the full set of metrics for a web page. So, displaying the data for the top 10 pages in the SERP costs ten credits accordingly.
Do also note that each time the toolbar shows you keyword data, it costs you one “Rows per month” credit from the Keywords Explorer section.
No credits will be spent if you switch the toolbar to standby mode (by clicking on the toolbar icon that turns grey):
(The number shown is the DR of the site.)
Also, showing the DR on the SEO toolbar icon spends no credits from your account.
