Keep Your Readers on Your Blog Longer

Very often when I am visiting another blog, I see a little widget at the bottom of the page directing me to other posts which are similar to the one I just read that I might like. It often results in me clicking on one of those articles and going to another page and reading another blog post on the same blog.

From a blogger’s point of view, it is pretty wise to have a widget like this because it keeps readers engaged inside your blog and it increases your page views. I wanted to add this widget to my blog and so I searched around a little bit and I found a site called LinkWithin.

LinkWithin pulls blog posts from within your own blog and posts them at the bottom of each blog with a small photo and title. LinkWithin works by looking at tags, titles, and content and it is free and it is ad free.

Sometimes when I try to add plug-ins to my site the results are not what I expect, but when I installed LinkWithin, it worked like a charm. Bloggers who use Blogger, or a self-hosted WordPress site will find it very easy to install. When you enter in the information on the main page and click “Get Widget” it automatically gives you the code or file you need as well as step by step directions for installing the widget.

I’d love to know if you already use a widget like this if you saw an increase in your page views after you added it. If you decide to install LinkWithin, let me know if it was as easy for you as it was for me. I can’t wait to see how this increases my page views and the average time spent on my site. I made a quick note of what they are at now, and I’ll post back in a month and let you know about any changes.

Good luck and let me know what you think!

  4. Thanks for recommending this widget. I installed it with no problem. I’ll be interested to see if it increases the time spent on my blog by my readers.

  5. Wow, thanks for the info. I hope it works with my blog at typepad. I have a side bar that says categories with my other posts, but not sure how many people actually look at it. This will make it one less click to go to another post.

  6. I guess I am going to have to start looking into the self-hosting route (I’m a wordpresser) if I am going to be able to take advantage of all the fun widgets out there.
