06 April 2020 | 1 comments | Posted by Che Kohler in nichemarket Advice

Building links for dapps

Starting your cryptocurrency service, blockchain-based project, DE-FI system or dapp isn't easy even if you have the funding or the merits and it's even harder when you do not. Getting your project out to the masses and acquiring users has become harder especially with Google and Facebook not playing ball with blockchain projects and while you can use cryptocurrency-based ad exchanges, it may not be enough and this is where outreach and SEO can make all the difference.

Every blockchain project wants to get the mentions on elite sites in the space such as Cointelegraph and the like, but this requires some serious PR or having connections in the right networks. While these links may drive high levels of high-quality traffic, they're not the only sources and if you're looking to build a brought referral network and backlink profile.

If you're starting out or want to broaden your link profile then looking to the following simple linking opportunities is a great way to start a base for your future traffic growth.
