Watch this video if you want to know how I implemented a related articles section on my GatsbyJS blog. I had an ugly bounce rate on this website, and the first step towards reducing it was to offer users more articles they can read, after going through the article they initially landed on.

This article will be updated in the near future, and I will also go in detail about the reason I decided to implement this and what is the benefit of offering users more articles they can go through while they're on your site.

The code itself is not that complicated, it's actually rather simple, but it is worth going through it and understand the thought process.
