I just noticed the new “feature” that WP has introduced to all blogs – Possibly Related Posts – at the bottom of my blog entries. The keyword is “possibly” b/c some of the links that magically appeared on my blog were in no way shape or form related to my blog. UGH! I think I was most annoyed b/c of the way it is set up; it makes it look like *I am* the one recommending these blogs/links. Granted a couple links are previous posts from my own blog which is great but if I want to recommend someone’s blog I can do it myself!
So I began my quest on how to get rid of said “possibly related posts” and thought other WP users would find the information useful.
If you want to remove the related posts from your blog entirely…
Design –> Extras –> check the box that says “Hide related links on this blog, which means this blog won’t show up on other’s blogs or get traffic that way”
They make it sound all scary that you won’t get traffic but I think I am doing fine on my own. Thank you very much. Sorry WP. A big huge foam finger thumbs down on this feature.
