    I was just looking at my site and I no longer see the related Posts at the end of each Post. Yes I did check and they are still enabled, they were helping a bit with traffic

    thanks

    The blog I need help with is captnmike.com.

    Hello Auxclass,

    I just noticed that Related Posts are not showing up for me either, and so I am guessing that this is a bug.

    Hey there @auxclass! Sorry about the temporary glitch. Related Posts are showing up in your blog posts again.

    Let me know if that isn’t the case on your end. Thanks!

    I noticed late last night that they had came back

    thanks – not a big traffic builder I think (your stats don’t show them) – but looking at Stat Counter I see the reference from time to time – but one way to look at them is if they get Three extra page views a day – that is over 1,000 extra page views in a year – don’t know what your traffic is – but with my site I call that real extra traffic

    thanks

    Hello Druesome,

    Thank you.

    Hello Auxclass,

    I agree and I like WordPress.com’s Related Posts even better than its Zemanta counterpart because they are automatic, they are placed in a better location, there are larger, not too many are shown, and they are more relevant for my blog because they use my own blog posts.

    I hope that other Zemanta-like features are added in the future such as Recommended/Related Images, Tags, and Links so that I do not have to keep using the Zemanta browser extension because/since Zemanta is no longer built-into WordPress.com for unexplained reasons; and it would be nice to see WordPress continue to make its own Zemanta-like features that are even better.

    Hello John Jr,

    If there is anything you wanted to suggest as a feature, please don’t hesitate to post it at the WordPress.org Ideas Forum:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/ideas/

    If enough people like your suggestion, there is a chance of it becoming a part of a future WordPress version. :)

    Thanks!

    Hello Druesome,

    I do not have a WordPress.org Account (maybe one day), but I do thank you for sharing that link because I will probably use it one day if I ever make a WordPress.org Account in the future. :)

    Could I use the Ideas Forum here at the WordPress.com Forums instead for now since I do not have a WordPress.org Account at this time or will it not likely to be noticed/considered at the WordPress.com Forums?

    While you are still here I was curious if you have seen my latest question on one of my topics that you commented on (https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/twenty-fourteen-tagline-alignment-different-for-default-color-palette?replies=12#post-1918205)?

    Also I was wondering if this is a bug (https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/automattic-news-not-working-in-the-wordpresscom-reader?replies=1#post-1918223)?

    Thank you,

    It would be best to sign up for new WordPress.org account and post in the Ideas forum there. :)

    Our developers are still looking into it. My colleague Karim will let you know if we hear back from them.

    Also I was wondering if this is a bug (https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/automattic-news-not-working-in-the-wordpresscom-reader?replies=1#post-1918223)?

    I’ve replied to you in that thread. :)

    Cheers!
