Link Analysis Concepts
To use a complex software like LinkResearchTools (LRT) it is important that you understand a couple of concepts that may seem trivial at first view, but we suggest you keep referring to this chapter just as much as to the "SEO Metrics" chapter.
Link Velocity Trends (LVT)
Look at the link velocity trends and understand what is the natural or unnatural backlink growth for any given linking domain. Link Velocity Trends describe the change in growth or decline. It does not relate directly to the number of won or lost links. Hence it can also be a negative number if a website still earns links, just a lot less than it used to.
