Random Post Widget for Blogger

Although "Related Posts widget" and "Recent Posts widget" are important, but in blogs where almost all the posts are similar (like blogs with articles on recipes, money-making, computer tricks or automobiles etc.), visitors usually do not mind reading some quite-unrelated posts too.

So along with them a "Random Posts widget" on your blog will help you to increase the number of page impressions.

How to Apply:

* Login to blogger -> Layout -> Add a Gadget -> HTML/JavaScript

* Paste the following Code:

<script type="text/javascript">
var randarray = new Array();var l=0;var flag;
var numofpost=10;function randomposts(json){
var total = parseInt(json.feed.openSearch$totalResults.$t,10);
for(i=0;i < numofpost;){flag=0;randarray.length=numofpost;l=Math.floor(Math.random()*total);for(j in randarray){if(l==randarray[j]){ flag=1;}}
for(n in randarray){ var p=randarray[n];var entry=json.feed.entry[p-1];
for(k=0; k < entry.link.length; k++){if(entry.link[k].rel=='alternate'){var item = "<li>" + "<a href=" + entry.link[k].href + ">" + entry.title.$t + "</a> </li>";
<script src="/feeds/posts/default?alt=json-in-script&start-index=1&max-results=1000&callback=randomposts" type="text/javascript"></script>

The Letter in "red" is the number of posts to be displayed.
