Better crosslinking between articles

I was prompted by Aidan of Inkode SEO the other day to place better internal crosslinking between my articles. Apparently, I have some good content on here and it's hard to find.

I tend to agree.

This is something I have been meaning to do for some time, and I have now finally taken a couple of steps towards this. Aidan's comment was basically the kick in the pants required. You may notice a list of "related articles" at the bottom of every post, and a next / previous link on every page.

Will be interesting to see if page views increase as a result - In the 3 days it has been running, my cooking blog has almost doubled it's pageviews per visitor so perhaps it was a good idea after all?

Custom blog software

If anyone was wondering why I didn't do this sooner, the answer is simple. I choose to write my own blogging software. While the freedom to code however you like is nice, these 2 small changes took the best part of a day to implement, much more complicated than simply installing a plugin and tweaking some settings.

I urge you all to click on as many links as you can so my pageview stats will be over-inflated, and I can justify this additional time spent :)

Who knows, you might even find some interesting content in there.
