</head>

Now Add below code just above it

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<style type='text/css'>
#related-posts {float:center;height:100%;min-height:100%;padding-top:5px;padding-left:5px;}
#related-posts h2{font-size: 1.6em;font-weight: bold;color:#000;font-family:Arial, Georgia;margin-bottom:0.75em;margin-top: 0em;padding-top: 0em;}
#related-posts a{-webkit-transition: background 1s ease, color 1s ease;-moz-transition: background 1s ease, color 1s ease;-o-transition: background 1s ease, color 1s ease;}

.tooltip{width: 115px; color:#000;font:lighter 12px/1.3 Arial,sans-serif;text-decoration:none;text-align:left}
.tooltip span.top{padding:20px 5px 0;background:url(http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-VdRo2rygD58/TsEfqdv2i_I/AAAAAAAAAHk/0XgrI8IM6TU/s1600/bt.png) no-repeat top;}

</style>
<script type='text/javascript'>window.onload=function(){enableTooltips("calcList")};imgBT=new Image();imgBT.src='http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-WQzi5hugHT8/TsEgEpZVEbI/AAAAAAAAAHs/Vq8oZLnRTVw/s1600/noimage.jpg';</script>
<script src='http://dvslabs.googlecode.com/files/rp-bubbled-thumbnails.js' type='text/javascript'></script>
</b:if>

Next, Search for this:

In which tag the this present, just place the below code after this:

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<div id='related-posts'>
<b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'>
<b:if cond='data:label.isLast != &quot;true&quot;'>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<script expr:src='&quot;/feeds/posts/default/-/&quot; + data:label.name + &quot;?alt=json-in-script&amp;callback=related_results_labels_thumbs&amp;max-results=12&quot;' type='text/javascript'/></b:if></b:loop>
<h4>Related Posts</h4>
<script type='text/javascript'>
var currentposturl=&quot;<data:post.url/>&quot;;
var maxresults=10;
var relatedpoststitle=&quot;&quot;;
removeRelatedDuplicates_thumbs();
printRelatedLabels_thumbs();
</script>
</div><div style='clear:both'/>
</b:if>


Save your template and you're done. You may set the maximum number of related posts up to 20 posts. You can also customize it if you have small knowledge of HTML.
