Adding stats to your WordPress site is a unique way to encourage users to be engaged with your content and return to your site. It’s not a foolproof method for increasing traffic and engagement, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. Luckily, it’s pretty easy to pull off using the Simple Blog Stats plugin.

Simple Blog Stats allows you to post a lot of your site statistics, including, but not limited to:

  • number of posts
  • number of pages
  • number of drafts
  • number of comments
  • number of registered users
  • number of categories
  • number of tags
  • word count for any post
  • total word count of all post
  • date of most recent site update

The plugin supports shortcodes, so you can use shortcodes to add any or all of the above statistics to any of your posts or pages, or you can choose to display them anywhere on your theme using template tags.
