Attracting visitors is the major moto and the best Seo Technique of a good and well standed blogger.He will do anything  for the sake of good targeted visitors and subcribers when a visitor pop ups on your blog accrding to  a survey he will first see on the right side of your webpage and then in the bottom the popular posts is mostly placed on the right side if you have placed it on anyother place place it on the right side just under two or three widgets it will put a great impact on your posts.This will dramatically increase your visiting of any old posts or the posts which are mostly seen by the users these days including me  when i visits any blog i read it further as i see firstly the popular posts widget that what kind of quality posts the author is writing and i firstly see the old visitors recomendation because it maters a lot.
Today i have also introduced a widget called grid style popular posts widget it is already installed approx on every blog but i just added some grid style so it can look more stunning and attractive and can raise your popularity of some old and mostly visited posts.

So here are the steps to make grid style popular posts widget
1. Go to the Layout Page and add the Popular Posts Gadget,If you have already installed just skip this step


2. Edit the Gadget Settings so that it displays the Thumbnails 
3. Now Go to Template Edit Html . Do not Click on the Expand Widget.Look for  
<b:widget id='PopularPosts1' locked='false' title='Popular Posts' type='PopularPosts'/>
 Just Press Ctrl+f and serch for this line

4:When You find it remove the whole line and paste the following code at the same position
