Show number of views in Blogger posts/pages

Post Views refer to the number of times a specific post on a blog or a website, has been viewed by visiting users. When a user visits a website and views a post/page, the website’s host will record the view separately (if you have some special configuration for blogger or have some specific plugin for wordpress). These views can be collected and can be displayed on the websites posts/pages.

Some websites and content management systems, such as, have built-in functionality to track post views. But if the website platform or content management system doesn’t have the functionality to track post views then we can use external plugins or scripts that can track views. Additionally, analytics tools, such as Google Analytics, do provide the data on the number of post views.

It’s important to note that there are different ways to count post views and some views may be counted multiple times, for example, if a user refreshes the post/page many times. There are many factors that tell whether an article or a blog post is useful or not, the most important one of them is how many views an article or a blog has. Its a clear reflection of how many people have read that article or blog post.
