If i post 3 posts in my blog...

oct 5

and oct - 18

And i think oct 5 is really good in my blog

i want to recommand to my visitor.

for the linkblog, i need to add a link there.....kinda strange...

can it just let me check the post is recommanded, and then it will provide a link for the user to click in my left side of the blog ?

Seems to me that you could just make a category called "Recommended Reading" and then either create a link to that category or write a little code to actually list out links to the most recent entries from that category.

Or, you could create a seperate blog called "Recommended Reading", and enable cross-posting so you can post some of your entries to that blog as well.

On my own blog, I've created a recommanded list of posts intended to be specific to each visitor. The idea was "stolen" from [url=http://www.amazon.com]Amazon[/url]'s "Customers who bought this DVD also bought".

To make short, the recommendation system implied a visitor to give his opinion (positive, neutral or negative) about a post. Then, the system displayed the list of articles most appreciated by other visitors expressing the same opinion for this same post. The results were weighted by the time the system knew each visitor (identified by a unique ID written into a cookie) in order to nullify robots and other hazardous clicks.

The main issue of that system was very few visitors expressed their opinion (less than 10 out of 1,000). It was then very difficult to collect pertinent data (tens of people expressing their opinions for each post).

oh, thanks for you guys on discussing the idea and gives comments.

I think the best solution for this, like kweb said, i create a category say as recommend reading, and list out my post in that cat.

thanks :D
