Retrieve and Display Pageviews on Each Post of Your Site from Google Analytics

It’s time to share. You really don’t have to hire someone to place page views on each post you published on your WordPress blog. There’s a fix. No, I am not a plugin author, but I have tested lots of plugins. See, I am dependent on plugins when I do not have time to tweak the PHP side of things on the WordPress back end.

Google Analytics Post Pageviews is a WordPress plugin that is specifically designed to retrieve page views from your Google Analytics account and display it on the pages of your blog. It’s a newly created plugin with over 4000 downloads, but trust me it works!

  1. Page view counters are great addition to the site. It helps entice people to see which pages are well visited. Plus, it is an ego booster for the author. Isn’t it great that the common person can do these things even without so much technical knowledge?

    • You are right Bro! It’s awesome to know that bloggers without knowledge about PHP still can add page view counters and other widgets on their WordPress sites, it’s a piece of cake with the use of plugins, and there’s plenty of them in WordPress repository. Yeah, it motivates authors, plus, readers would know that the article they are reading has lots of readers. Have a great day Bro!

        • HI Mavic, this is easy to learn especially now that plug ins are easy to install on a page. Simple tweaks in a webpage can provide great advantages.
