Intent (Writing)

Engagement (Websites)

If you use WordPress as I do, this article is worth reviewing. I have been happy with a large number of the JetPack features, and already use the related posts as you can see if you scroll down to the bottom of this list on the individual page (rather than the general blog page). I often see visits to older interesting links posts when I post on Friday, with the related links as the most likely cause.
