Recmnd allows you to show related content to your readers. The recommendations are real-time and change when you update your content or when you publish new articles. All recommendations are served via a widget and you control its style, the information shown for each suggestion, the number of displayed recommendations, the time period of the recommendations, and the depth of the recommendation analysis. In order to use the Recmnd service you must register for an account: http://www.recmnd.com/plans/. This plugin works with our trial accounts as well.

You need to select the “Single Post” (single.php) template file for your blog theme, and insert the following code snippet in the exact place where you want your recommendations to appear (probably you would like to have the widget displayed right underneath the text of the blog post):
