Why Show Related Posts Using LinkedWithin?

LinkWithin Can Increase Page Views
When you show readers related posts at the bottom of your article, you are increasing the chances, they will stick around and read more, and perhaps even subscribe to your blog if they find it has enough interesting information. I have been using Linked Within on my blogs for quite a while, and I have been pleased with the internal referrals I see in my stats. Using the Linked Within app easily automates posting of archived headlines or images to your blog post. You can choose to have 3 or 5 related posts, and if you blog on a dark background, you can choose an option that will work for you too.

Which Blogs Work Best With LinkWithin?

LinkWithin works best when you use catchy titles, great images, and label your posts with relevant tags. While LinkWithin is most appealing on blogs that have images: ie recipe blogs, gardening blogs, how to blogs; LinkWithin will still work for you if you have no images.  No image or few images? No problem! LinkWithin will display a link list of several of your archived articles.
