SRS Simple Hits Counter

Description

As the name suggests, it’s a very simple Hit Counter that counts the number of Unique Visitors and Page-views. It’s very light weight so it doesn’t strain your site or cause render blocking.

You can show either Unique Visitors count or Page-views count anywhere on the site using widgets or shortcode. You can also add/show both Counters by using two copies of the widget or the shortcode.

Note: It keeps counting even when you have no widget or shortcode active. To completely disable the counter you have to disable the plugin.

Features

  • AJAX based counter ignores most bots or crawlers
  • Monthly and weekly graph in admin
  • Show the Unique Visitors, Page-views count or both
  • Ability to reset the counter to any number any time
  • Can be shown anywhere on the site using Widgets and Shortcode
  • Counter works and shows data in admin even when no widget or short-code is active

SHORTCODES

[srs_total_visitors] for Unique Visitors
[srs_total_pageViews] for Page-views

I have been using this plugin on various sites now for years. It continues to function simply, and yet has everything you would want to display page visits and unique visitors. Looking for simple and works? This is it.
