Ahrefs Webmaster Tools vs Google Search Console

Google Search Console may be the go-to tool for site indexing, but the reports for coverage and site issues are not very helpful. Search Console does show errors on your website, but is not very helpful when it comes to fixing them. On the other hand, Ahrefs new tools provide guidance for issues, and explains how to fix, and avoid them.
