Posts Unique View Counter


Posts Unique View Counter allows you to easily display how many times a post have been uniquely viewed with this easy to install plugin.

Just install the plugin and the counting begins. No coding skills needed.


  • Displays how many times a post has been viewed on each post. (See screenshot-1.jpg)
  • Displays a sortable view count column on All Posts page in the WordPress admin. (See screenshot-2.jpg)


  • All views of the post will start at zero (0) upon the plugin installation.
  • When a visitor viewed your post, it will save a cookie on the visitor so that same visitor will only count as one (1) view, this way we can uniquely identify each visitor.
  • The cookie expires after a month, so if the same person viewed your post after the cookie expires it will count as another view.
  • Visitors who use “incognito” or something similar will be counted always as a unique visitor because “incognito” mode does not save cookies.
  • One (1) visitor = One (1) cookie.

Please rate and review the plugin if you find it useful.
