JV-Relatives = Related Items + Keyword Tagging + Social Bookmaking Extension


JV-Relatives retains the reader of the article for more time in the website by giving him the option to read more related articles. JV-Relatives displays the related articles or posts in random order or a preset order. This ensures that articles of your website that are not read frequently have more chance to be read, as they are displayed in the related articles section.

JV-Relatives improves SEO of your Joomla! website by showing links to articles which are deep in your website which otherwise get hardly noticed by search engines. JV-Relatives provides a module and a plugin (or field for Cobalt) to show related articles. Each of them can be used exclusively to show related items, social media icons and tags for the article displayed. 

Scan and Display Related Articles

JV-Relatives obtains the related articles by scanning the meta keywords or tags of other articles in your website. The related articles are chosen based on the keywords or tags configured for the displayed article.

You can select categories to scan for related articles, search in article titles, set meta keywords to ignore for scanning, decide the sorting order of related articles from hits, created date, modified date, title, relevance of match etc...

Display Keywords/Tags in Articles

JV-Relatives enhances Search Engine Optimization of your website by aptly displaying keywords of the displayed article as tags above or below the article.

The keywords can also be linked to default Joomla! search facility, there by improving your website Search Engine Optimization. This feature is available for supported third party extensions too.

AceSEF and sh404SEF

Usually the meta keywords are manually provided by authors when they create articles and are stored in the native tables of Joomla content or K2 or EasyBlog. There could be cases where you use components like AceSEF and sh404SEF to generate meta keywords and store them in their respective component tables. JV-Relatives has the ability to read those tables and scan for related content! JV-Relatives works with AceSEF and sh404SEF too!

Related Articles Anywhere

Display related articles block anywhere inside article content by using {jvrelatives} tag, or display it in pre-defined positions like top left of article content, or beneath the article content. You may also switch off related articles display in specific articles.

Social Media Bookmarking

JV-Relatives displays a set of social networking buttons which can be placed above or below the article. These buttons allow the reader to share content or like and share it in Facebook, add it to Google+, tweet about the article and add to Pinterest.

End of Page Slide Out Box

Show related articles, tags and social media buttons in a box that will appear as the user scrolls to the bottom of the page. This is something the user cannot ignore and ensures a higher conversion ratio for you in retaining the visitors for longer periods of time.

Related Articles Styling

JV-Relatives provides multiple filters to decide the type of related articles. You may filter by author, language and age of related articles. You can also display thumbnails of related articles for which you can select first image in article or image configured in intro content or image configured in full content for articles. You may choose from multiple display layouts and show article intro, last updated time, created time and number of hits.

Styles - Choose from the existing styles that render related articles based on the version of bootstrap you use, or choose a new one altogether. It is very easy to create style for JV-Relatives.

Custom.css - Wish to stick to the default styles, but want to customize the look and feel. You can do that too by creating a custom.css and creating css overrides in it!.
