Related Post for Blogger Blog No Thumbnails or Image
As I mentioned on my previous article about Related Post widgets with thumbnails or Image is chosen mainly for attracting readers to view your other articles. Related Post or Articles below every post without thumbnails or image will make your blog post loading more faster due to the fact that if you have lots of images on every post, it makes it harder for your page to load due to the fact that images add extra weight to the blog.

Blogger related posts widget is undeniably proven useful by most of bloggers out there including me, due to the fact that it helps in keeping your blog's visitors stay for a longer time than usual, which in-turn decreases the blog's bounce rate and consequently boost your page-views day by day. You have to make sure that the readers who are visiting your site really read your articles in order for them to be considered as readers. Bounce rate indicates how disinterested they are with your post that is why you have to do something about it.

In this article I will teach you how to blend related post without thumbnails widget code with your blog templates for fast loading. If you want to add random post widget under every post just visit here.



Some of site offers linkwithin, outbrain and nRelate -- all good widgets available for just about any platform. Other than that, for blogger, there's hardly any script available that will properly show related posts at the end of your post (or in any other place that you like), But this third-party related post scripts will be burden to your blog page loading because they are using redirection methods wherein before they reach your related post actual post after clicking the link the users will be redirected first to related post widgets serves by third party websites that will take longer loading of your blogs.

  9. Thank you! I had to remove the related post plug-in I was using because it was drastically slowing down my site. I've mourned the loss of that easy method of keeping readers engaged on my site though. This is perfect.
