Recently I stumbled on a blog post on How to Add related post widget to blogger blogs from ogbongeblog. After going through that guide on how to add related post widgets, I decided to replicate the same for my readers. So many readers will find it interesting to see related topics with regards their keyword searched through Google. Having such tools in your blog performs a lot of action, Does it makes sense?

This post will reveal how I added the related post widget/plugin to my blog , which displays list of related posts below each post on my Blogger blog.

Yesterday, although my schedule was tight, I had to publish a post on How to Practically Remove the Blogger Attribution Widget from Your Blog.

I hope you’re delighted after going through it.

Additionally, the related posts widget will show a new related posts section below your post. The related posts widget digs out the related posts from those posts having the same label as the current post.

Now, go ahead to view one of your blog posts. You should see the Related posts below it.

You must comprehend that if you did not add a label (category) to a post, you might not see the related posts below it. So carefully do that before following this guide.

In order to alter the look and feel of the widget, you have to meddle with the CSS coding.
