I know most of you have heard of LinkWithin, but how many of you have heard of nRelate? It is the same concept, but a little more of a heavy hitter with added features. For instance, with nRelate you can add in sponsored links to earn a little bit of extra money, they give you the option to have the links show up on your posts only or both homepage and posts (I shared a way to do this with LinkWithin a little while ago, but with nRelate it is just a click of a button!), etc. On top of that I have heard through the grapevine that LinkWithin actually takes a user "away" from your page, through their site and then back to you (not that the user can tell that), so all those clicks are coming from an "external" site rather than staying within yours.... what's all that mean? Basically it can negatively effect your SEO.
Let's get back to some of the features that nRelate boasts:
Relevancy Level Control - Does just what it says, lets YOU control how relevant your post results are.
Choice of Thumbnail Size - That's a biggie for blogs with smaller post areas
Automatic Content Sharing from your Favorite Blogs - This lets you spread the love to some of your fav peeps in your blog roll.
Choose to include nRelate link - You can choose whether or not to display a link to their site.
I went ahead and implemented nRelate to give it a go and see my thoughts. Just an FYI, after you install the widget it does take approximately 10 minutes to go into effect and show up live on your site, so don't freak if you aren't seeing it right away!
I'm not saying I'm pro nRelate or LinkWithin, but so far I am loving the control I have with nRelate vs LinkWithin.
