How to Show Related Posts On Blogger/BlogSpot Blogs
Related post suggestions under your blog posts are very useful for both your blog and your blog's visitors in several ways. Where your visitors will find other related and useful content for them, at the same time, Related Posts will boost your search engine ranking also by decreasing bounce rate on your blog and by increasing deep linking. On WordPress blogs, you will find many plugins which will allow you to show related posts under your blog post easily but with Blogger Blogs, the task is little bit difficult. You need to add different codes to your Blogger Blog template to display related posts under your posts. This type of code editing will not work with all Blogger templates, so I am suggesting you a very easy-to-setup online service which will add related posts under your Blogger Blog posts in less than three minutes. The service is LinkWithin which adds beautifully laid-out related posts with thumbnails under each post on your Blogger blog. Many bloggers don't like this service to use on their blogs due to the addition of LinkWithin attribution link which the service puts with the post suggestions to promote itself. I will provide you a piece of CSS code which will remove LinkWithin Attribution Link.
