Importance of Related Posts feed on your Blog page
The related posts feed on your web page not only keeps your website visitors engaged but also increase your website earnings to a great extent by decreasing the bounce rate of your website.
This is particularly important for a blogger who writes blogs on various unrelated categories.
For example, a blogger who writes blogs on travel and fashion. The website visitors reading the travel blogs might not be interested in navigating through the fashion blogs and vice versa, however if you are a blogger writing a niche blog on a specific category then you can also create a sidebar simply by using the Wix blog feed containing a particular category.
Related Blog posts feed keep your users engaged and increase their interest in your website, as a result you get more returning users.
The related blogs clicks will reduce your website bounce rate in google analytics which will also improve the conversion rates of the google ads placed on your website.
Your website will also get high ranking on google search console and as a result you can achieve great Wix website monetization results through organic traffic.
