A simple and lightweight pageviews counter for your WordPress posts and pages.

Pageviews is a simple and lightweight views counter for your WordPress posts and pages. It is based on JavaScript and is compatible with all caching plugins, proxies and complex setups. Pageviews works with a hosted processing service, and performs extremely well under high-traffic and on sites with large amounts of content.


  • Display the number of times a post or page has been viewed
  • Works on high-traffic websites with zero impact on performance
  • Includes useful hooks and APIs for seamless integration into third-party themes
  • Compatible with caching plugins, proxies and application firewalls

For an installation and configuration guide please visit the full documentation on GitHub.

If you need any setup assistance or help migrating your existing views counts from other plugins or services (such as Jetpack, Google Analytics, etc.) please reach out to Pressjitsu via live chat or e-mail, or open a new thread in the support forums.
