Improve Link Velocity to Stay Competitive in SEO

Link Velocity is the rate at which one of your client’s web assets (webpage, video, image, PDF, etc.) gets new links each month.

Nowadays most websites that are ranking in the top 3 positions of Google’s SERP (or Search Engine Results Page) need to be getting new backlinks each month in order to stay competitive. 

While many of these will come naturally to well-written, epic content – most of the top competitors are putting a lot of time and resources towards gaining new backlinks.

Understanding how many new backlinks your client’s competitors are gaining each month will help prevent overspending or under-spending on certain URLs. Unfortunately, there isn’t an easy or free way to monitor your competition’s link velocity.

However, link velocity is included in our Keyword Research – Competitor Analysis service! Feel free to reach out to one of our SEO experts by sending an email to

About Mateo

Hi. I’m Mateo Baisden. I’ve spent over a decade building websites with my team at Cloud Agency. I’ve seen first-hand what a difference a professionally designed and managed website can make for a small business.
