Post Volume Stats

Shows stats for the volume of posts per year, month, day-of-the-month, day-of-the-week, hour-of-the-day, author, categories, tags and custom taxonomy.

This plugin looks at the volume of posts in each category and tag, and also the volume of posts per year, month, day-of-the-month, day-of-the-week, hour and author. It works better the more posts you have, and if you use categories and tags. You can now specify a year and/or an author to just look at the post volume stats for that year/author. The bar charts can be added to a sidebar with Post Volume Stats widget. Lists and line graphs can be exported to a new post to show the change in category, tag and custom taxonomy posts over the years. The latest features are "words per post" stats and the "compare years" button allows all the data to be copy/pasted into a spreadsheet.
