A Pictorial Related Posts Widget For Blogger Blogs


Both pictures and related posts widget are very important for a blog.
Pictures do speak a thousand words and they express your thoughts in a better way. And related posts will of course show more options to your readers and thus they stay longer on your blog.
So a perfect mixture of these two will definitely help you to build a more successful blog.

Pictorial Related Posts Widget For Blogger/BlogSpot Blogs

Moreover this widget overcomes another problem in the previous related posts widget, which used to show only the latest related posts. But this widget crawls all your blog and then randomly selects the related articles.

There are no ads in the widget and you do not even have to register in their website to use the widget.
Simply visit LinkWithin, enter the details, click on "Get Widget". In the new page, click on Install Widget button, and the widget will be ready for your blog.

Although there are some limitations in the widget, like you cannot customize it, but as they say and I have experienced too, the widget does get blend in to your blog easily.
Presently I am using this widget along with the previous widget, and I already have noticed many clicks through the widget.

I would recommend you to try this widget for at least a week.
NOTE: As the widget is based on JavaScript, so it will take some to load in your blog.

Hi Ankit....

All the coding for this widget is packed in javascript file, so there's nothing we can tweak in it...as the widget and their service are quite new, so there might be some glitches in it.....anyways if it is still not working, shoot a mail to them:

Sai, Thanks for the tip.
The widget shows related/previous posts but no photos.
Anyway, will wait for another hack.

Divya Sai said...

Well Nukta....if it showing up the posts, then it should show the images too (provided, images are there in the posts...)
Or the other reason may be that, the widget requires some time to properly index your blog....so you may add the widget and check after 2/3 days, if things are fine or not...

Divya Sai said...

And I noticed "Retweet" buttons in your blog....if you want that the RT should belong to you and not to tweetmeme when people tweet through those buttons, then read the update in this post:

I don't think it is good idea, because it'll make the blog load slowly because the image. And I think it is didn't fit to custom template...sorry but this is just my opinion....

Mohammad Mustafa Ahmedzai said...

hi sai,

I liked the previous Related Post widget that used a JavaScript.

Dsai I don't know why isn't my blog comment box showing up in IE whilst its working just fine in Mozilla. Plz visit the blog and plz help me with that, TNT by STC

Divya Sai said...

@ Another way to earn money
Of course you are free to share your views dude....
Anyways as I have said, I am still trying this widget, and presently I can see some increase in intra-blog surfing among my readers due to this widget, if it increases more then I can compromise for the inc. in loading time(which is actually not very significantly more too...)

Divya Sai said...

@ MOhd,

Comment form is visible in IE & FF both...

Mohammad Mustafa Ahmedzai said...

thks for informing. May be I will need to reinstall IE :)

Eliza said...

I'm trying this pictorial related blog widget right now.. And I'll also try the Add Smiley later =)

Thanks for your tips =) Keep 'em coming

Divya Sai said...

Hi Eliza,

Just visited your blog, you are using a nice template, and as you also use pictures in your blog, so this widget is looking good too in your blog.

@ Eliza & Everybody

To HIDE this widget in HomePage and to show it ONLY in your POSTS, use this code:

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
WIDGET CODE HERE
</b:if>
Regards
Sai

i want to show widget in this sequence

2.linkwithin widget
3.related post widget..
and sorry for my bad English

Soufiane said...

it does not work for me, is it because i have few posts ??? ( less than 20) ???

Soufiane said...

oh no sorry i check an other time and it works fine.


i think i forgot "/" in the end of my blog url, i am nor sure 8-}

Divya Sai said...

i think '/' is not necessary, the widget just takes a few seconds to load.....so u would have missed in the first time... :)

Divya Sai said...

@ Sexy Celebrity HQ Wallpaper

Remove your normal realted posts wisget, add linkwithin widget, then add 'normal related posts' widget below the linkwithin widget...that's it.

Soufiane said...

:)) Hello Divya, i tried to get this widget, i install but it didn't work. it shows nothing apart the linkwithin link, So i write to
support@linkwithin.com

and they answer me the next day, and here what they say : "There was a problem crawling your blog's feed which is fixed now, so the widget should work properly.
We also changed it to show 4 related posts."

indeed the widget now is working perfectly and showing 4 related posts links. moreover it get totally blend with the template. look hereand an other thing, the phrase "You might like these stories: " is shown in different languages (English, french, Spanish ...) depending on the language of the page, this is wonderful.

Soufiane said...

you should write them too and tell us if they will show 4 related posts. it's better 4 related posts, isn't it ???

as u have many posts and u have write a post about them they also can make it 5 related posts :)) :)) :)) :)) :))
thank u Divya very happy with this widget

Divya Sai said...

Hey thanks for suggesting that dude...actually I thought there's any hack to show 4 posts....never thought it would be so simple :)

Ricky said...

Soufiane said...

I see! so now u get 4 related posts :)) i'll ask them to get 5 then and i'll see =)) =))

bloggerstop.net said...

Soufiane said...

You are using the wrong code dude:
<b:if item="cond" = data:blog.pagetype="item">

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
WIDGET CODE HERE

Sai @ Blogger Help said...

Images must be present in all your posts, which will be shown in the widget. If you have the images but still they are not being displayed then contact them at this address: http://www.linkwithin.com/contact
I am quite sure they'll respond back.

Starr Hendon said...

Hi Divya,

I am trying to get the code from Link Within for a Blogger blog. They keep saying they don't support personal sites. I've worked two other blogs in Word Press and Typepad that both allowed the code, although I wasn't the one who got it. My site is fully on Astronomy. Would you have any ideas why they won't allow me to get the code? I don't have any Google ads in yet, could that be something? And looking at the post above, all of my posts have at least one picture.

Thanks for any help you can give me - I REALLY want that code :)

Starr Hendon said...

Oops, my bad! I was still setting up and hadn't allowed access yet. Got it all figured out now. Thanks for having this site for easy access for all of us.

Sai @ BloggerStop said...

Glad you got it Hendon!
And thanks for your kind words :)

Hi! My latest post reveals how I created an (poor man's) alternative to this. The code is there for you to see. I would be interested to know what you think of it.

Take Care,
Peter

adela johnsons said...

Thanks for your tips =)

very informative

Joyas said...

Oh boy, Linkwithin redirect from them and it's google guidelines don't recomend redirection.
I tried and drastic lost trafic.
Better to hope an official gadget from blogger

Simply Deb said...

I just wanted you to know that this widget corrupts itself from time to time, or maybe Blogger doesn't like it, because it will stop showing images or it will show duplicate posts, etc. I'm going to dump it and try just putting code in for random posts with thumbnails. I'm tired of it messing up and making my blog look bad.

:)) ;)) ;;) :D ;) :p :(( :) :( :X =(( :-o :-/ :-* :| 8-} :)] ~x( :-t b-( :-L x( =))
