WordPress Plugins: Related Posts

As I was struggling to update WordPress yesterday (I made it a lot harder than it should have been… it’s a talent), I figured why not add another plugin to the mix, just to kick up the difficulty level a bit. To be honest, the update really shouldn’t have been difficult AT ALL but hey, what good is it if I don’t have something to complain about right? Anyway, as I said, I’m now using the Related Posts Plugin from w-a-s-a-b-i.com (quite possibly the most obnoxious domain name I have ever had to type into my browser). The plugin was crazy easy to install and in fact, the theme I’m using already had a spot for the related posts commented out. Even I can’t manage to screw that up.

It also provides two key benefits that will help your blog grow. Not only does this plugin give interested readers yet another way to access your content, it will also help interlink your content for search engine purposes. The more links each of your posts has (including links from your own site) the more likely they will be to show up in the search results.

Bottom line, it’s easy to use, and it’s helpful to your site. What more could you ask for from a plugin?
