LinkWithin Is Really A Useful Tool And Free

You may have noticed that many blogs now have a link with their posts suggesting other posts that most closely relate to the one you are reading. This is a very useful addition to add to your site as it may well get your readers to look further into your site with the temptation there in front of them. Kamila has been using it for some time although on fault is that it selects the image used in posts referred to and Kamila has many posts with the same portrait picture of her. This therefore gives many link posts within the site with the same picture, never-the-less it is still better with this internal linking tool than without.

Basically LinkWithin works by placing a blog widget that shows up under each post and links up to related stories from your blog history. As mentioned this includes a thumbnail sized a picture if you have a photograph in the post. You can display up to 5 related posts, and blends in nicely with the design of your post frame with a seamless effect included with most options available. Unfortunately if your blog is not from Blogger, TypePad or WordPress this isn’t an tool that is available for you.

Kamila is very pleased with anything that enhances her blog and brings in more interest for readers especially when it is free and that is exactly what it is FREE and easy to set up. So if you want to get readers to linger longer and add a temptation to explore you previous posts LinkWithin is well worth considering.

Oh and by the way in case you think this is a sponsored post, Kamila can categorically confirm that it isn't.

Kamila says, “Hope is has some benefit to folk.”

I think I first saw LinkWithin on The Everyday Adventurer and I've found myself clicking quite often to explore older posts. Eventually I'll give it a try myself :-)

I tried it, but it just doesn't work with my theme so I had to use something else.

Where actually in your blog can i see the linkwithin tool?

Hi Agentmango,
At the bottom of each post is the result of the tool, but the actual tool is invisible to the viewing public and only seen at the back end of your admin layout section.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll definitely be checking it out.
