Relate all the things!

A session at WordCamp Birmingham 2012

Saturday 14th January, 2012

3:20pm to 4:00pm (CST)

So your new site’s launched: great content, beautiful design, and SEO’ed like whoah. But when a visitor comes in for one particular page, how do you encourage them to engage further with your content rather than leave? The Yet Another Related Posts Plugin for WordPress—aka YARPP—was built exactly out of this concern. YARPP offers your visitors a number of “related posts” which may also interest them. These “related posts” are chosen automatically by a unique algorithm which compares the current post or page with other content on the site.

Advocated by the likes of Matt Mullenweg (WordPress) and Matt Cutts (Google), YARPP is by far the most popular content recomendation plugin for WordPress. Learn about the past and future of YARPP straight from its author, mitcho. I’ll talk about YARPP’s internals, share some advanced tips for using and customizing YARPP, and will debut YARPP’s custom post type support.
