    I have installed the wordpress popular posts on the side of my website, but it doesn't seem to update very often. How often does this occur or is it supposed to be realtime?

    Hi there,

    The views / comments count are retrieved in real time. Everytime someone reads a post, WPP will update the views count automatically.

    The google analytics tell me 600 visits to one post but the popular posts says 71 hits? Huge discrepancy. Any settings I need to change?

    I'd need more information to help track down what the problem is:

    1. What plugins are being used on your site?
    2. Which version of WordPress are you running now?
    3. What's your current theme? Is it available for download somewhere so I can try it out?

    Yes, I experience a similar issue. I use Jetpack for my stats, but also find discrepancies between jetpack's stats and wordpress popular posts' stats.

    For example, while jetpack might say one of my posts has been seen maybe 20 times in the past couple of days, the WPP stats would report 819 views for that same post within a 24 hour period.
