How to specify related posts - key relative factors? (2 posts)

    Are there any tricks to making this plugin display specific posts under the Related boxes?

    For example, I have a very popular article that I want to pair a related article with, but the plugin does not recognize it as related.
    I've tried putting them in the same category, similar tags, similar posts content... even linking within the articles to each other (that seemed to work for one of them)

    Basically what I'm wondering, are what are key metrics or indicators this plugin uses to determine the relationship of posts??? It's very frustrating that I have a related post I want to show, and am specifically tagging it as such, but it doesn't seem to want to show up. Any ideas on how to make articles "related"?

    You can play around with the settings in the "Relatedness" panel, and give extra weight to tags or categories and see if that pulls in your article. This slideshow details some of what makes articles "related": http://www.slideshare.net/mitcho/relate-all-the-things

    Specifying a post to display is beyond the scope of YARPP at this time.
