3) nrelated  Content Related  Links


If you can insert a valuable related link  at the end of your content, it should add credibility to your  name as a blogger. There are numerous plugins to  functionise the automatic inclusion of  related links. But the plugin nrelate comes to my mind as it does the automatic inclusion as well as you can use short codes to include links manually. That gives a look of personal touch to your post.

You know what an effect it creates when you insert a video tag to make your blog post more explainable. But the task isn’t easy as you still have to  copy and paste the embed code from the platform where you choose to pick the video.  This plugin makes your job relatively easier as  you just need to copy paste the URL of  the video you want to insert. The embeding process for the video upload is done automatically by the plugin Viper’s Video Quicktags . Now that saves a lot of hassle on your side.
