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 Outbrain.
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 wont use your database resource anymore. It will increase your site speed and reduce CPU utilization.
We are using YARPP currently on Crunchify. It’s been more than 4 years and so far it’s all good.Would love to know what you think. Chime in and share it as a comment. Don’t forget to share this guide!
