Well, if you want to increase your pageview and boost your SEO, then it is very important for you to be adding “related posts” in your posts. It helps you to keep your visitors for a long time on your site. There are many plugins that can help us add automatically add “related posts” in your blog post in wordpress but we are going to use: Inline Related post plugin.
The first thing we need to do is to install the “Inline related post” plugin. Simply login to your WordPress dashboard, hover to plugins and click ” add new”. On the next page search for”Inline Related Post”. Once you see the plugin, click on “install”, and “Activate” the plugin.
Settings For The Plugin
Now, how do we configure the plugin? To configure the plugin, hover over “settings” and click on “Inline Related Posts”.
We are going to focus on the design of the inline related posts. The first thing to do is to check the “active” field to make the active.
If you are used to many blogs, you will notice while reading a post, you will see something like “Also Read” “People also read” “you might be interested in:” etc … What do you want your related text to be like? In the snapshot below i use “Read also”, you can change it to whatever you want.
In the Theme section, choose the one you want. If you are using the free version of the plugin, you don’t have any other option than the theme “shock”. The advantage with other theme is the fact you can see the featured image of the post inline.
Keep the Opacity 100 and others as default (recommended).
Here you have the option of choosing the color of different part of the inline related post. Follow the example shown in the screenshot above.
Basically in this section you will be asked to place the inline related posts in your previous posts or not. Secondly choose the number of related posts you want to be placing in your posts. By default it is three so you can leave it at default.
Engine setting and Metabox integration
I recommend you leave everything as default in these sections. But you can also change it if you know what you’re doing.
After setting everything, click on “Save”. Congrats, your inline related posts have been set successfully!
