Recently I stumbled on a blog post in relation to adding related post widget to your blog from ogbongeblog (Jide ogunsanya)-He is a top blogger in Nigeria, try to read more about blogging from his blog. After my fruitful encounter with adding related post widget, I decided to make this post public. So many readers will find it interesting to see related topics with regards their keyword searched through Google. Having such tools I your blog performs a lot of action(makes sense).

This post will reveal to you 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.

To add the related posts widget, please kindly follow the illustrated instructions below without mistakes
