This video of his TED Talk gives a summary of some of that research.

After a lot of reports of an intermittent issue with the Related Posts sometimes not showing up I have finally found and fixed the bug that caused it. Please download this new version 1.2.03.04 which also includes Post dates and Excerpt support. These patches and new features seem to have spawned a new wave of interest as I now have over 10,000 downloads!

Anyone have any idea when and how these stats are compiled? Please comment.
