Having the best content in your market does not necessarily mean that your site will be a success. You will also have to work hard on building a solid community and gaining loyal readers. Keeping your new visitors on your website for longer would also help. Adding a related posts section to each and every post is a good way to retain your visitors for longer.

There are plenty of related posts plugins available for WordPress. Unfortunately, many of them put too much load on your server. Some of them just slow sites down dramatically. When it comes to these plugins, you want to do your homework before picking one for your site. Here are 5 similar posts plugins we have had the most success with:

A lot of bloggers spend a lot of time developing high quality content to keep their visitors coming back for me. But what they don’t focus on is promoting the content they have worked on already. Let’s say you blog 3 times a week. After a year, you are going to have over 150 posts on your blog. Would people still be able to find your older posts on your blog? Do you give them a way to do that on your blog? Thankfully, there are plenty of plugins that give you the opportunity to do that.

If you happen to have a lot of articles on your blog and want to give your visitors a chance to find your other top articles by linking out to them from your sidebar or below your articles, here are 5 plugins you should try:

Random Posts: if you just want to give your visitors a chance to find out about your other articles on a random basis, you can count on this cool plugin. It comes with a lot of options and lets you modify the look and feel of how articles are presented on your website.

Popular Posts: this is my favorite plugin in this bunch. It keeps track of how many people are visiting your articles and displays a list based on that information with your top visited articles at the top. No matter how many articles you have on your website, it’s always nice to have a way to display the very best of what your blog has to offer to your visitors.

In order to keep your blog growing on a consistent basis, you need to focus on providing quality content on a consistent basis. Once you get started with your blog, people start to look for how often you post, and it becomes their habit to refer to your site when you do post new information. So if you start blogging everyday, you better be prepared for a backlash when you run out of things to say on your blog. Once you set up a post frequency on your blog, you better stick with it. While you can plan things ahead, there is no way to predict emergency situations. What if you have to be away for a month. Can you afford to leave your blog alone for a month with no one there to take your place?

That’s where Time Release comes in. It’s a simple plugin that lets you queue up your posts and have them published automatically after days of inactivity on your side. How many days? That’s really up to you. You can define that in the back-end and let the plugin take over when you are not around to blog.
