Long time reader Aseem Kishore has recently released his first WordPress plugin, and it is an interesting one. As you probably know I recommend people to write monthly roundups on their blogs, including the most popular posts of the previous month. This technique is useful for several things, including:
- To give some link love to your popular posts
- To let your readers check the posts that they might have missed
- To highlight your best content
- To have something to write about on a slow day
The only problem with it is that it requires some time. In fact I used to post roundups every month, but lately I am busy with a lot of projects and ended up forgetting them.
The solution? WP Best Posts Summary plugin. The plugin will basically generate a list of popular posts for you automatically, based on the number of comments of page views that they received over a specified time frame.
It comes with many customization options too: you can decide how many popular posts you want to have, from what categories they should come, how many words the excerpt should have, and template to use and so on. Worth a look.
