Hi, This is the best Javascript-based page view counts for my website because it works with other major CACHE plugins such as WP Fastest Cache, SuperCache, etc. without more custom codes. My only drawbacks of this plugin are: 1. It is dependent on a third party website to count page views which may cause poor website performance. 2. There is no guide on how to reset those page view counts to Zero every month, 6 months or year, etc. However, I still give 5 STARs to this plugin despite the above drawbacks.

Installed this locally to test before utilizing on a client site and experienced no problems whatsoever in either environment. I’m using it in a custom theme template and the integration couldn’t have been simpler. Thank you for this fantastic plugin. I’ve also used it on a CPT with no issues as can be seen here. Here is how I’m using it on the blog.

Excelente. Mais simples seria difícil. Faz o que se propõe sem configurações. Apresenta as leituras de cada artigo de forma discreta e permite ir ao Google Analytics buscar a contagem total. Excellent. Simpler would be difficult. It does what it proposes without setings. Displays discreetly the views for each post and allows the user to fetch all the views stored on Google Analytics.
