Am I Dumb?

Don't answer that. But answer this: Why does my little "Link Within" thing that I added show totally random past posts that don't seem to me to be at all related to the current post, despite my having gone back through to add labels to things? Do I add too many labels? Does it just think my labels are dumb, so it makes up its own categories? Then I thought maybe I had always just imagined that other people's "You might also like..." things were related to the current post, that everyone's were totally random. But I don't think that's it. Am I doing something wrong? Please help.

I'm not really sure... but I was under the impression that it looked at the text from each post and the list came from posts that had similar words within the post. I could be totally wrong though. My linkwithin is pretty random too. Let me know if you figure anything out! :)
