There are many WordPress ‘related posts’ plugins available, but as they are trying to reach a broad audience, their options tend to be limited and the ways that the related links are displayed constrictive.
One of our clients wanted to display related case study links on product and case study pages, based on their own category criteria and ranking factors, in order to show their customers a selection of related links based on similar products or application areas. They also wished to keep their content looking fresh without the restriction of always showing the latest posts. Rather, they wished to show a selection of three related posts, chosen at random from the posts matching their criteria. We developed a bespoke plugin for the website that fulfilled these exact requirements.
