Producing great content for your WordPress website all the time is great. But you will also have to give your visitors a way to find out about other content you may have to offer. Displaying your most popular posts is certainly a great idea. We have covered plenty of popular posts plugins here in the past. The Popularity Posts Widget is another simple one that displays your top posts as a widget.
The Popularity Posts Widget not only shows your most popular posts on your site, it lets you choose a specific time range for them. Want to limit the number of posts that get displayed? Posts can be filtered by category. The look and feel of the widget can be changed using CSS. Thumbnails for posts are available as well, though you want to make sure you get the permissions right.
The Popularity Posts Widget is yet another plugin you can use to keep your visitors on your site for longer. I still prefer similar posts plugins better but this one has potential too.
