Link Velocity and Link Velocity Trends

LVT, LV4m, LV6m, LV12m, LV24m – metrics to evaluate the link growth from source domains.

LVT LVT is a trend indicator that measures and traces link growth changes a backlink profile, over time.

This value is displayed in “%” and compares the LV4m value with the LV24m value. There are positive and negative link growth trends, depending on whether a website gains links or loses links during a certain time span.  This unique metric allows you to identify linking domains that are out-of-favor on the web. A negative LVT often hints at penalized or dropped domains, often used in artificial link networks like PBNs.

On the other hand, a very high value, indicating a rapid growth of the backlink profile, can help you spot spam attacks from third parties, if you are not doing and proactive link building yourself.
