4.4 out of 5 stars
For some reason it will not Filter Out Post/Page IDs
By ,

I inserted a few post ids (separated with only a comma) under "Filter Out Post/Page IDs:" but it does not filter them. They still show up in the top content widget.

Please fix ASAP or tell me how to fix. I don't want certain posts to be shown in the list.

Excellent support
By , for WP 4.5.2

At a glance, this plugin seems to lack customization. But once you know how to do it, it really works flawlessly.

Even if you don't, you can! This plugin deserves 5 star not only because it works great, but also because of the excellent support from Justin, the plugin developer. He replies really fast and efficient. Thanks Justin!

Doesn't work due to Google Analytics 3rd party app needed
By , for WP 4.4

The app requires "Google Analytics by Yoast" but this app doesn't authenticate anymore due to them not updating their app in several months. Meaning this app doesn't install. Is there a way around this?

Thanks for the latest update.

Best of its kind!

The Google Analytics Top Posts Widget is still the best plugin of its kind, and we're proud to host on our website. The widget can be seen in action on the following page:


Thanks to Justin for the outstanding support.

PS. After the recent upgrade of the plugin (1.6.1 in May 2015) which now uses Google Analytics Dashboard by Yoast instead of the older Google Analytics Dashboard, some changes to the coding were required to get the page views working again.

Your fast response with the coding update kept our website 100% functional, and I'm pleased to re-confirm that The Google Analytics Top Posts Widget is still the best plugin of its kind.

Does the job perfectly!

Been searching for a plugin that uses GA data to present posts, and this one does the trick. Great using shortcode to embed in posts or pages.

Only thing I miss is a bit nicer presentation, like having thumbnails of the articles. But other than that, really good plugin that doesn't seem to slow down the site at all!

Hey, It Works!

Once I figured out how to configure it, it worked like a charm.

Works flawlessly.

Love this plugin. Exactly what I was looking for.

This plugin counts pageview according to your Google analytics account.
Since all the other plugins count pageview after the plugin installed, they don't really show visitors the real popular posts unless you installed the plugin right after you start the blog or website.

Anyway, this plugin works flawlessly if you read the instructions and follow as it mentioned. The developer is very helpful and I am so happy with this plugin!

Simple & Effective

We tried using some other plugins for our wordpress site to generate the top posts, but since we receive a lot of traffic, they slowed down our website significantly. This plugin is simple and uses the Google Analytics to not bog down your own server when finding the top content on your site.
