A beautifully simple to set up plugin that gives site visitors and site owners the ability to quickly and easily see how many people have visited that page or post.
If you are using the new Gutenberg editor once Page View Count is turned on from the plugins settings page the Global Page View Count meta will show under the sidebar Document Tab. Page View Count can be added to anywhere in your content by doing a block search for ‘Page Views’ or selecting the block from the Common Blocks menu.
Adding the Page Views block to your content automatically deactivates the Global Page View counter on the post or page. You can then place the counter anywhere in the content and set the alignment for it.

- The number 1 support request we get about the plugin is that it double or triple counts page or post loads. Yes it does and if you see that it is a Red Flag that you have a misconfiguration or bug in your theme or a plugin. Page Views Count does exactly that – counts each time the page or post is loading in the browser – if its counting twice it is because the browser is double loading the page. That is a bad thing and you or your developer needs to fix that.
