What about the relevancy? There are not so many websites in this niche, if you know that would like to post the articles like "Play the free slot games on ... website" because as you know they have the affiliate programs or sponsorships and often there are conditions not to post any content that is not about the websites prescribed in the contracts.
So, webmaster should not only fins the links on the websites devoted strictly to free slots (which are relevant for 100%), but also the website in the adjacent niches. So to make sure that the website subsection is relevant, you should know how many similar pages inside of this website have links to the subsection where you want to make your post, so... How does you define if the website is relevant?
Also, I'm interested if it will be enought to make post in such subsections of the large-scale sites like "medium.com" etc with an appropriate tags? Or maybe I should make not only one post with the links I want, but also the articles that will have the links to those where there are links to my website?
I'm a little bit confused..Hope you understood the idea.
