Related Posts Showdown: LinkWithin VS Outbrain VS nRelate

If you've been blogging or reading blogs for any amount of time, then you've probably noticed, or might even already have installed a related posts widget. They are a great idea and an effective method for increasing page views and reducing bounce rates by encouraging visitors to stay on your blog longer by showing them a list of other enticing posts that "They Might Like".

In my opinion, the choice of whether or not to install one of these widgets on your blog is a no-brainer. There are no drawbacks, unless you maybe have a small and infrequently updated blog with a limited amount of posts such as this one. In that case, you might want to hold off on it until you've built up a decent amount of posts or articles. However, if you have an established blog with a healthy number of posts, then you are missing out if you don't have a related post widget.

The only real question, and one not so easily answered is, of the many available solutions out there, which one d…

Image
Some timely housewarming items arrived at Axiom's new residence at 1702 Washington Ave.

Axiom collected five ADDY Awards and 12 Citations of Excellence at AAF-Houston's 50th annual awards ceremony held at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Houston on Saturday night.

The Big Pictures of Fire Station No. 6

Image
When "creative energy" meets "Rough and Ready," the endearing nickname of the early 20th-century crew of Fire Station No. 6, the resultant atmosphere blends past with present, and the spirit of getting the job done continues to resonate.
Today, Axiom enters another historic space where "creative energy" evolves. Within the landmark Fire Station No. 6 at 1702 Washington Ave. (est. 1903), 10-foot-by-12-foot images of 1920s Houston firefighters provide everyday inspiration to employees. Visitors cannot help but to recognize the history presented on the walls as they walk through the building.

Axiom's previous location was the landmark TriBeca Lofts (a.k.a. the Clarke & Courts building, est. 1936) at 1210 West Clay, an art deco structure where Tom Hair cultivated his "creative energy" philosophy since 1998.  Hair purchased FS6 in 2005 and devoted considerable time and resources to achieving its restoration.
The mural-size images of the orig…
