Did you miss the section about Blog Loading time? See it here!

If you’ve been to many blogs or websites, you’ve undoubtedly seen the “related posts” section. This section links to other relevant articles on the same basic topic, making it easy for you to find more content you might be interested in based on what you just read.

This feature is also great for SEO, because if offers more links to your content, which is extremely beneficial. Search engines thrive on links, and if you don’t have plenty of links to your content internally, it will be difficult for crawlers to find all of it.

Here are some “related posts” plugins you can try:

Using Pagination

Pagination. Many people don’t even know what that word means, but if you see it, you’ll almost certainly recognize it.


Have you seen this before?  It’s the pagination used on the Google website. It shows you links to the next ten pages of content.

Pagination is important for a blog, because it helps with organizing content and archiving it. If you’ve ever been to a blog that doesn’t paginate their content, you’ll understand its importance, because you’ll have dozens or even hundreds of posts on the same page that you must scroll through on a single page. This hurts load times drastically, in addition to making it hard to find content.

When you use pagination correctly, it will make your blog have a great crawl depth, which means search engines will be able to find your content easier and helps the PageRank distribute through your site.

If you want to REALLY benefit using a great plugin that automatically adds pagination, images AND extra SEO benefits have a look at StickyPost (it’s what I’ve used to paginate this article too!)  – click the link, it will open in a new window.
