Name:
Add Related Posts to Your Feed

Plugin Page:
http://www.solo-technology.com/blog/…add-related-posts-to-your-feed/

Description:
This plugin uses UTW or w-a-s-a-b-i Related Posts to add a Related Posts section to the end of each article in your feed.

Future Plans:
- Support for “Simple Tags” related posts function.
- admin screen
- ability to control the text displayed in the feed above the list

Review:

On installation point of view, you don’t have do anything besides the normal. However, you do need to have either Related Posts plugin or UTW.

This plugin comes with both its plus and negative points. On the positive side, it ensures that readers of your feeds are directed to similar posts on your blog, thus increasing blog views.

On the downside, today feeds are getting extremely cluttered and this plugin will just add to that list. Additionally, your feed readers are already aware of your site and wouldn’t need to be pointed to your posts…

Again, arguing on this point, it works well to point your newer readers to your old posts.

Basically, this becomes a compromise between choosing more things in your feed and possibly extra page views.

If you haven’t already filled up your feed with too many addons then this plugin is definitely a positive addition to it.

    Thanks for the mention, Ajay!

    Rich is correct (host attacked). Looks like they have it under control now and hopefully it’ll stay up.
