LRT LinkResearchTools

Competitive Link Velocity Tool (CLV) and Link Check Tool (LCT)


Barely two weeks after the last release the LinkResearchTools SEO forge proudly presents two brand new tools. The CLV tool supports you in comparing your historical link development to your competitors’ domains – namely DomainPop, LinkPop and all types of links (No Follow, image, text and redirects). The LCT is finally a link check tool that deserves its name. Fully automated reports, the brand new fuzzy mode, complex link checks and even your well-kept Excel information (e.g. e-mail, prices) remains after importing your data into the LinkResearchTools.

Competitive Link Velocity (CLV)

Compare your link growth with your top competitor’s link growth!

The latest Superhero and Enterprise Goodie has arrived – The brand new Competitive Link Velocity (CLV) tool. This tool refines our Link Research Tool Portfolio with a new Element. The CLV puts your link research process to another level by viewing your link process over a preset period of time with a brand new visualization mode.

CLV Input

A new point of view on your link process

You’ll get a new point of view on your link process. The CLV tool generates a unique heat map over a period of two years that is rarely seen outside the LinkResearchTools laboratories – or maybe at Google.

You’ll learn which link growing rates are examined as “natural” for your niche and therefore what’s the maximum speed you can run link building without being noticed by Google.

The factor of link building and link growth speed is simply ignored in many SEO campaigns and link projects, which can lead to nasty surprises. The heat map at the Competitive Link Velocity (CLV) tool provides you with changes in Link Popularity, Domain Popularity as well as detailed changes in text-, images-, NOFOLLOW- and redirect-links at a glance. This heat map allows you a quick comparison of historical changes in link profiles. This means you are able to evaluate how many links of any kind have been placed or deleted.

If you recognize drastic changes in the number of image links, that may point to a successful banner campaign. A sudden boost of NOFOLLOW links could point to a lot of interest in forums or blogs, or even a spammy link campaign. Many Redirects could indicate an advanced SEO tactics, or again a lot of activity in the social sector through URL shorteners.

I don’t want to miss the LinkResearchTools in my everyday SEO life. I especially like the Common Back Links Tool that helped me to get some high quality backlinks for my projects, e.g. great PR6 links from university sites. The second highlight is the Backlinks and Anchortext Tool that I use to investigate my competitors’ link building and I already got some number one rankings for my clients
