Related post in a blog is what keeps your blog alive. Most times, it keeps your users busy reading what you have posted on your blog which increases the rank of your page visit and boosts your search engine rank.
Their lot of related post widget you can use for your blog but among all, I see LinkWithin post related post to be number one of all.
Watch the video below to see how to set up your related post in a few minutes.
One of the advantages of LinkWithin is no sign up required.
LinkWithin will index your blog makes use of your Archive, tags, and label, not just your recent stories but making them assessable to new casual readers of your blog who would not otherwise encounter them.
It loads faster and increases Pageview of your blog which is advisable for a blogger that is mindful of his or her SEO rank.
The truth is, I don’t use LinkWithin for my blog because I am using a premium template, and adding a free widget to a premium template would sound amateur. However, I will advise you to go for a premium template for your Blog, you can write to Early Sunrise Guide, he is an expert in converting and setting up the free template and makes it new for as low as $15 (N5,400).
How do I set it up?
There two ways you can add LinkWithin to your blog. The first step is adding it as a Widget to your blog layout. While the second step is adding it to your theme template. I will recommend the second option, adding it to your theme template, just before the closing of </body>, this will help your blog to load faster. Whichever way you choose is super fine anyway.
Width: This means the number is stories you want to be on every post as a related post. By the default on LinkWithin, the numbers of stories are 3, but I will recommend you select 5 stories, the choice is yours.
Select ‘My blog has light text on a dark background’ if your blog background is dark or black.
Click on ‘Get Widget’
Step 3: Install Widget
Click Install Widget to open Blogger in a new window
Select your blog
Rename LinkWithin to Related Post
Click Add Widget.
By default, the widget will be added to the right sidebar at the top. Drag it o the bottom of the body element. To do this, login to your dashboard, click on layout, then drag it from the top right-sidebar to the bottom of the blog post widget.
