Another day, another plugin. Get excited! We're announcing the release of our Google Analytics Popular Posts plugin.
The plugin (previously called Analytic Bridge) queries Google Analytics for pageview data for your site and uses an algorithm – based on publish date and total number of pageviews – to determine a weighted popularity score for a post.
Using this scoring mechanism, the plugin generates a list of the most popular posts for a given site.
The list of popular posts can be displayed on the front end of your site using the included "Google Analytics Popular Posts" widget.
We hope to make this the start of a suite of tools to improve the connection between your site and Google Analytics. Stay tuned!
The plugin is available now in the WordPress plugin directory and you can check out the code on Github and create a fork to contribute!
