If you have a bounce rate problem or your readers don’t stay too long on your web, Relate-it can help. It shows thumbnails of related posts as an alternative to link lists or tags.
The thumbnails will appear between the content of the post and the comments section.
The relationship between the posts is established based on two criteria: same tag or category. First the plugin looks for posts wiht the same tags as the main post. If the number of obtained posts doesn’t reach a value specified in the plugin settings section then it looks for posts in the same category. Finally, to complete the number of related posts, it uses random posts.
