Today I want to share one of the best Related Link Widget plugin for WordPress. I’ve been very big fan of Yet Another Related Post Plugin (YARPP) and
Link Within for couple of years and recently moved to
Update 08/01/2017: We moved back to YARPP as Outbrain has now Amplify widget which provides recommendation for other advertiser and we are not ready to provide other recommendation to all my readers. It may mislead my users.
It’s been more than
4 yearswith YARPP and so far it’s all good 🙂
Outbrain automatically places your best content at the foot of your article to guide your readers towards more of what you have to offer. The Outbrain content recommendation system personalizes links for each of your readers by blending contextual analysis, collaborative filtering (“people who read this article also read…”), and personalization to sift through all your content and select the best four or five links to show at any time.
Ever since installing The Outbrain Widget, I have noted an increased interaction with the site by visitors who clicked on the image thumbnails (auto generated by the service) to discover more about the topic they are interested in. While The Outbrain WordPress Plugin provides a text based recommendation as well the thumbnail recommendations works great for blogs and sites which feature a lot of well selected graphics, as they serve as an additional teaser to the readers.
Another must read:
Once you install Outbrain, it will index your site and won’t use your database resource anymore. It will increase your site speed and reduce CPU utilization.
