How to make "You May Also Like" Related Posts or Link Within widget appear on mobile devices
Showing "Related Posts" on blogs is a good way to keep viewers engaged with your blog. Once they are finished going through a particular blog post, your visitors may want to browse related posts on your blog. If you have a "related posts" or "you may also like" section, they can easily check out other articles on your blog. This is also good for reducing bounce rates. In my previous post, I discussed about how to add a "you may also like" or "related posts" section on Blogger blog using a free service from "LinkWithin". If you have not yet added a "related posts" or "you may also like" section on your blog, you can check out my previous blog post here -How to add "you may also like" or related posts widget for blogger? Though the article is about adding "You may also like" or "related posts" on Blogger blog, you can also use the "LinkWithin" service for other blogging platforms or websites as well.

"You May Also Like" Related Posts or Link Within widget not appearing on mobile devices?

If you have added the "You may also like" section using the 'LinkWithin" service to Blogger, you might have observed that the widget appears only on desktops and not on mobile devices. In this post, we will see how to make the "related posts" or "you may also like" section appear on mobile devices.

By default, most Blogger widgets do not appear on mobile template on mobile devices. But we can make them appear. This is also discussed in my previous post -How to make Blogger widgets visible in Blogger Mobile template ?

Watch this short video tutorial how to make "You May Also Like" widget appear on mobile devices



In a nutshell, you need to include " mobile='yes' " in the widget code to make the widget appear on mobile devices. You want a particular widget to appear only on mobile devices and not on desktops, then you can add "mobile ='only' " instead.

After adding LinkWithin's "You May Also Like" widget, the code for the widget in Template > Edit HTML appears as:
<b:widget id='HTML7' locked='false' title='You may also like:' type='HTML' visible='true'>
<b:includable id='main'><data:content/></b:includable>
</b:widget>

Add mobile='yes' to the above code. Now it should looks like this:

<b:widget id='HTML7' locked='false' mobile='yes' title='You may also like:' type='HTML' visible='true'>
<b:includable id='main'><data:content/></b:includable>
</b:widget>
After the above changes, the "You May Also Like" widget should also appear on mobile devices. Now your readers will also be able to access related posts even on mobile devices.
