    Thanks a lot for the tutorial ^_^

    Hi Prayag, I have few questions.

    1. Do they helps in SEO, if yes, then moving from linkwithin to nRelate effect the SEO or not?

    2. I am not able to see the demo widget in the demo link.

    I prefer this over Linkwithin. Much better with advanced customization. Thanks for the info!

    They don't help in any ways in SEO , they are just there for suggesting the reader content that is related to the one they have just read.

    The Demo is present near the end of the post in the Demo link

    I used this in my WordPress blog for 6 Months. Later found that it was creating problem to my blog's speed. So I removed it. I don't think same thing happens with Blogger.

    like this, thanks bro :D

    it's working :D

    I wanted to know this thing. I integrated linkwithin in my Avoided Thoughts blog. The problem I was facing is it shows up after every post. It was so annoying since I only wanted it to be shown under FULL POST read.

    Because it looks so bad looking at bulky items on my front page. I use jump breaks.

    Reply plz.

    Hi Jayesh

    If you want this to appear on only Post pages then you will have to go to Design > Edit HTML (As per new Interface Go to Template > Edit HTML).Tick the "Expand Widget Templates" and Then search for the Title of Gadget (If you have not given any title then give a dummy title like "abcd" and search using CTRF F for this term) . Now see the following code

    <b:widget id='WidgetID' locked='false' title='abcd' type='HTML'>
    <b:includable id='main'>
    PUT CONDITIONAL TAG HERE
    <b:if cond='data:title != &quot;&quot;'>
    <h2 class='title'><data:title/></h2>
    </b:if>
    <div class='widget-content'>
    <data:content/>
    </div>
    <b:include name='quickedit'/>
    <b:else/>
    <style type='text/css'>
    #WidgetID {display:none;}/*to hide empty widget box*/
    </style>
    </b:if>
    </b:includable>
    </b:widget>

    List of conditional tags


    Replace the "PUT CONDITIONAL TAG HERE" in the above code with any one of the thing.

    1. Index (list) pages

    Index pages include homepage, labels page and yearly archive page.
    <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "index"'>
    2. Post (item) page

    <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
    3. Static Page

    <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "static_page"'>
    4. Archive page

    <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "archive"'>
    5. Homepage

    <b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl'>
    6. Specific page/url

    <b:if cond='data:blog.url == "PUT_URL_HERE"'>

    Now after putting the conditional tag, Preview the code and then Save.

    Thank you for the help. This really helped.

    Prayag, thank you for your post, but now the nrelate is above the jump break link which should not. The nrelate should be BELOW the jumpbreak link.

    How can I fix this?
