What do we think about these?
I mean, I can see the advantage of them and in fact I’m seeing visitors to some of my posts from other peoples auto-generated lists, but mostly their not that relevant.
This is a brilliant example, the above are supposedly related to my “My name in lights” post, one is a link to someone talking about how nice a Lemon cake looks, one is a poem, and the other (shock horror) is a guy who’s just seen his name on the board to his local church. They all mention the word “name” and “lights” but that hardly makes them relevant!
Do I turn them off and lose some visitors but gain control of my links?
I’m going to monitor this, but generally not impressed with this feature so far 😦

Honestly? They are awful. I really don’t like them – mostly they are not related at all and in my humble opinion are just another way for wordpress.com to game the google juice.
If you turn them off, can I suggest you go into your control panel and turn off the “snapshots” on links too?
You might want to have a peek in the wp.com forum about all the issues around PRL and Snap Shots.

Thanks Collin, I’m definitely leaning towards turning them off. The more I see them the more they annoy me!
I’ll have to read up on the Snap Shots thing, I’m not really sure what they do at the mo’.
