Jetpack Related Posts not working or displaying – appearing on WordPress Self Hosted Website Domain or Subdomain, Here is why it is happening & how you can fix it.

With JetPack for WordPress, Automattic is releasing features for WordPress self-hosted websites.

One feature in that release is ‘Related Posts,’ where you can activate this inbuilt plugin-like functionality to scan your self-hosted website and display the desired number of related posts under each blog post.

This feature helps users discover and read related post category content more easily. It also increases the website’s click-through rate, i.e., the Average number of pages visited by each website visitor.

It sometimes doesn’t show any related posts under any blog post, but there is a reason why it acts up that way.

Reason what I received from talking to Support staff at Automattic is something like this:

We don’t try to find related posts until there are 10 published posts to try to ensure there’s a fair amount in the index to produce good results.

If your other sites have more then 10 posts, can you reindex the site by visiting the Jetpack page, clicking Learn More on the Related Posts module and then click the Index button that appears?

I hope this helps,

Thanks & Regards
