Related posts on WordPress.com, coming to a Jetpack near you

WordPress.com released a new feature last week to enable related posts. In the comments,ย Xiao says that they are now working on porting this functionality to Jetpack as well. I wonder how the related posts are triggered, but I imagine they're pretty efficient (a plague of many related posts plugins) if they are confident to run it on .com.

  1. Woohoo! This is awesome news! I’ve had to write our own version of Related Posts that we use internally so that it’s performant even on awesome hosting like WPEngine because none of the Related Posts in the repo were coded with performance in mind.

    I’ll be able to retire that plugin once that’s in JetPack ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hello,

    I have a question about this feature. I have a wordpress site about chatting and I have used your tips for my site. It’s going well at the moment and I don’t want it to get harm by duplicate content thingie. Related posts cause duplicate content?

    Example: In this post there’s a related post such as:

    https://poststatus.com/wordpress-com-introduces-connect-a-login-with-api/

    But when I click on the related post I am connecting this page:

    https://poststatus.com/wordpress-com-introduces-connect-a-login-with-api/?relatedposts_exclude=5145

    If you help me about that I will be pleased

    1. I don’t think you should be concerned about query string parameters like that. I assume Google is smart enough to figure that out.
