Here I’m going to present my opinion about one functionality among them, which is Related Products.

Sharing related products is one of the best ways to optimize an ecommerce site both for humans and search engine. In the WooCommerce admin area when we are editing products data, also see a tab in below the post description named “Linked Products”. Here, we can relate the products to each other in three ways: Up sells, Cross Sells and Grouping.

WooCommerce showed the related products automatically in the product pages. These related products can’t be specified by admin, it can be influenced by grouping similar product in the same category or using the same tags.

WooCommerce algorithm shows max three current related product in the related products section and also offer best solutions when people add different products to their cart.
