When talking about shopping experience, it's important to offer extra product suggestions in time. “Also Viewed Products” — is the module for Magento 2 that will do that for you.

With this module, you don't need to spend time preparing complicated rules or relations. Just install the module and that's it. “Also Viewed Products” works for your site already and thoroughly explores customer’s activity. It will offer relevant recommendations for each product soon, based on other customer's interests.

You may choose one of the following scenarios to use:

  • Offer per product alternatives at the product page
  • Offer per customer product suggestions at the category, or any other page
  • And, of course, you can use the both blocks too

How does it work?

When a client views different products, the module creates relations between them. The module does that for each visitor. Then, the module indexes these relations and calculates “weight” score by relation popularity. Day by day, relations count grows and they become more accurate.


Bots will not affect relations accuracy. All popular web spiders are already added to the ignore list. You may view and change it at the module configuration page.

Additionally, you can add specific IP addresses into ignore list too.

Can I control the relations?

Yes. You can change relation sort order or even disable relation to hide it from the front end.

Where can I place the block?

You can add it to product tabs with extension configuration, or place it at any other page with the widget.

Popular places for “People with similar interests also viewed” block:

  • Product page tabs or sidebar (Recommend alternatives for current product)
  • Below product listing on the category page (Recommend suggestions for recently viewed products)
  • Homepage

If you are using third-party “Tabs” module, take a look at our documentation. Maybe we have instructions for you already.


There are two configuration sections available: “Product Page Tabs Integration” and “Log settings”.

Product Page Tabs Integration

Following options are available:

  • Show block (Yes/No)
  • Tab Title
  • Block Title inside tab (Leave empty to hide it)
  • Source used, to build recommendations (“Current product” is good choice at product page)
  • Products Count
  • Listing Mode (Grid and List)
  • Extra CSS classes, if you need to apply extra styles

Log settings

Log settings allows you to add:

  • Extra user agent ignore rules
  • IP addresses ignore list


Use the widget to show block at any other page or container.

Widget options are similar to configuration:

  • Block title
  • Number of Products to Display
  • Template (Content or Sidebar optimized)
  • Listing Mode (Grid or List)
  • Source used, to build recommendations
  • Extra CSS classes, if you need to apply extra styles


Official documentation is available at GitHub.
