I was using earlier Count per day but it was bloating my database and reducing server performance badly resulting in much server cost. My site is a short story club which has more than 30,000 writers (with contributor access) and many readers. Every read was resulting in accessing huge database; it means multitude of write requests to database in a second. Moreover I was using Vaultpress for backup so every database update was triggering query to Vaultpress as well. I disabled this plugin a year ago and lost many writers as they were unhappy to not see reads of their stories.
But then after evaluating many plugins, I found this plugin. It does exactly what I wanted - get data from google analytics, cache it for specified time and provide easy interface to display reads in theme. I really thank the writer of the plugin.
However I wish to have an option to disable reads in posts admin menu. It may be good for single or fewer members site but definitely resource hungry option for big site. I had to comment code for this extra column in post admin area.
Only one complaint: I can't find the link for contributing via paypal?
I was looking for this fonctionality since a long time and I was about to trying my own hacks. But I tryed this plugin and I ve been able to display my pageview on each post and on post lists. It even works for post types... Great !
I share my blog (French website) as an example of the pageviews ;)
You should describe the use of the plugin in details (on the plugin page), because it's not really clear through the plugin.
Thanks a lot Maxime !
I've been using this plug-in for six months with no issues.
It does make the 'posts' page load slowly, but the wait is worth it when you get to see the page view data for each post.
Having recently migrated from Joomla to WordPress I missed the page view count - this plugin fills the gap and provides much needed functionality that should be provided in WordPress.
This is a life saver plugin as it truly resolves the pageviews count issue effectively. And, it works great with all caching plugins as the data is retrieved from Google Analytics itself!
This is amazing! This is what I am looking for! You are brilliant! Thank you so much!
Great plugin and great supporting too !
I really appreciate this plugin. I've searched around and this is definately the best one, it does what we want. Even a few bugs now and then still makes it worth using! Hope it will be fixed soon though, then it's absolutely fab!
This plugin works amazingly! Thanks Max!
