    1. It's how related post work :
      first ,it scan all labels in the post . Each label it will scan all post for searching related posts and than remove then duplicated .
      If your post has two labels or more ,it will scan these labels for related posts .
      If related posts of two labels are not the same ,it will show all in result .
      Your post has two labels and no related post duplicated ,the result is 10 posts :D
