Last but not least there is nrleate.A�With currently more than 470,000 downloads the nrelate related contentA�plugin is one of the most popular ones around. The publisher claims to serve over 4 billion impressions and 500 million unique readers per month. You would imagine that is quite a success.
Well, apparently not so: On 1stA�December 2014,A�nrelateA�released a statement saying itA�willA�stopA�its nrelate related content offering for everyone. Instead, nrelate decided to focus on exclusively servicing websites owned by IAC, nrelate’s parent company, in the future.
That is really a shame because nrelate was a veryA�usefulA�relatedA�content plugin. If you still would like to know what nrelate used to offer, here is some more information:
The setup of nrelate is very easy and is aA�piece of cake even for a WordPress beginner. By default, nrelate offers several very distinct layouts for the related posts. Want to get the look from HuffPo or Engadget? No problem. Of course, you can also choose from some very generic styles.
nrelate started out as a pure related posts plugin. Nowadays it offers the option to show sponsored content, too. All revenues generated from the sponsored posts that appear in the widget are split with you as the website owner.
There is oneA�feature that makes the nrelate related content plugin stand out in particular: You can actually choose to display related content from other domains as well, meaning you can put the widget on several of your sites (if you are lucky enough have several ones that is…) and exchange visitors between sites.
As the hosting happens on the external servers by nrelate and the loading of the widget is asynchronous, your site should experienceA�no delay in loading times.
Now you know what nrelate wasA�about. Sad that we hadA�to sayA�farewell.A�Luckily, there are plenty of nrelate alternatives!
