This week the cryptocurrency news website Reddheads.com hit a significant milestone, becoming the first cryptocurrency media outlet to propose unique content, with the aim of covering all cryptocurrencies, in two languages.
Thanks to the efforts of @DeadPool, who assisted with translating some recent content into French, a French-language version of the website is now available.
It may seem surprising that we are the first multi-lingual cryptocurrency news website but I believe we can claim that accolade. I have looked for other websites doing the same thing and I have found examples of multi-lingual forums and news outlets that relate to specific projects but that remain siloed and are not dedicated to the entire space.
I have also found a cryptocurrency media outlet that offers industry-wide content in German, with a section dedicated to International News in English. But this section is simply a series of feeds from other sites – not unique content (and therefore invisible to Google’s spiders).
If anyone can point me to a multilingual website dedicated to the entire cryptocurrency industry, please let me know here.
Practically speaking, currently we are a modest site and the content relating to projects outside Reddcoin only covers Bitcoin… but the vision is clear, the scope is full-spectrum and the motivation behind the project is huge.
I have a strong background in publishing and a very keen interest in cryptocurrency. I rarely feel so passionately about the promise behind a project There is enormous potential to be realised in the upcoming year or two. Some of the things to look forward to:
Greatly increased rhythm of content publication
Dev team page giving backgrounds, skills and responsibilities
Reddheads team page giving author biographies
Growth of linked social media accounts
Unobtrusive revolving publicity for selected major media outlets
A new video section
Representation at industry events
Contributions from guest writers
… and more
On the last points, I am making inroads into other communities / with other media outlets looking for writers interested in widening their exposure or supporting their projects by submitting content.
Anyone interested in carrying out translation work into a language other than French is welcome to PM me.
Behind the scenes there is so much that can be done to improve the website’s ranking in Google and general visibility. Over the next few months I will run through a list of over 100 techniques to improve SEO and at some point engage with a consultant on the matter to double check my work and further optimise where necessary.
Some of the most exciting (and completely practical) ideas I have for the site are too big to write about now ;)
