WZ Followed Posts – Display what visitors are reading


Have you seen Amazon’s product pages? Amazon is a great example of visitor retention through recommendations. All of Amazon’s pages have a “Customers who viewed this item also viewed”. And how many times have you clicked those links? I know I have!

Now you can implement the same feature on your WordPress blog. WebberZone Followed Posts let’s you show “Readers who viewed this page, also viewed” links on your page.

The plugin tracks the pages, posts and custom post types that visitors click through from the current post. You can then display these followed posts automatically at the bottom of your posts, using a shortcode or via the inbuilt widget.

If you’re looking for a plugin that displays posts related to the content, look no further than Contextual Related Posts.
