How to add related posts with thumbnails using LinkWithin

linkwithinpic LinkWithin is a free service offered by a small team based in New York. With LinkWithin, users can display related posts linking to the related stories from your blog archive under each individual postings. Related posts is a good thing to have on your blog because it keeps your readers engaged with your content, thus, increasing page views on your blog. The LinkWithin related posts widget generates a minimally styled design to blend in with your site and best of all, its free, ad-free, and only takes a minute to get the widget up and running on your blog with no signup required.

Steps to follow:

1. Visit the LinkWithin website here.

2. Enter your email, blog link, and under platform option, select “Blogger”, and for the width, choose how many items you want to display for your related posts (3, 4, or 5 stories). Select the “My blog has a light text on a dark background” if that pertains to your template and then hit the “Get Widget!” button. Here’s a screen shot of mine:

3. After you clicked the “Get Widget!” button, LinkWithin takes you to the installation page. Select the “Install Widget” button to open Blogger up in a new window.

4. Next, select a blog, if you have more than one, then click “Add Widget

5. Once your LinkWithin widget has been added to your blog, it will appear on the sidebar widget, but move it under your “Blog Posts”. Here’s a screenshot of mine:

6. Next, select save and your done. Your LinkWithin widget should now appear on your blog.
