Displaying posts on a page or post or specific place is easy. However, it is a challenging task if you want to show posts related to a specific keyword.
But don’t worry!
I have a solution for you. You can use a WordPress plugin to show posts related to a specific keyword.
So, let’s start.
Why should you show posts based on keywords?
By default WordPress website shows the latest posts on the home page. It means you get necessary and unnecessary posts on your home page.
You may want to show essential posts or want to exclude less important posts related to keywords. That’s why filtering posts through keywords come into play.
If you show only posts that are related to important keywords, your website’s subscribers will increase.
When it comes to bounce rate, showing only important posts through filtering keywords will decrease bounce rate.
