I’m starting a new series here on BusinessLogs where I’ll write about WordPress plugins that are useful to business blogs. The first WordPress plugin in the WordPress Plugins for Business Blogs series is the Related Posts plugin.
The Related Posts plugin can help boost the amount of time a visitor spends on your business blog and increase page views on your business blog. It works very simply by adding a list of posts that are deemed to be related to all of the blog posts that you publish on your blog. The list of related posts is created automatically and is based primarily on keywords, so the list isn’t always perfect. However, it definitely works to increase page views.
You can also publish related posts at the end of your blog posts along with thumbnail images (if you include images in your blog posts) using the handy LinkWithin widget. Check out the image below to see how the LinkWithin widget results section looks at the bottom of a published blog post.
You can find additional similar WordPress plugins by visiting the WordPress plugin directory and searching for “related posts” or “similar posts”.
