Popular Posts widget for Blogspot by Blogger


 Finally Blogger.com introduced much needed "Popular Posts" widget for blogspot blogs. Earlier versions of Popular Posts widgets were not real time and were based on number of comments for the posts. This new Popular Posts widget is based on real time Stats earlier introduced by Blogger/Google. I know guys you are very excited about this widget.

Right now it is available on blogger in draft

Live Demo

Adding Popular Posts widget to your Blog

1. Login to Blogger in Draft. Go to Dashboard > Design > Add a Gadget.

2. Select Popular Posts.

3. You can set Popular Posts in 3 ways.

Popular Posts of
- All Time
- Last 30 Days
- Last 7 Days

4. You can display Post title along with Image Thumbnail and/or Snippet (i.e. small description of your post).

5. Click on Save and drag and drop this widget where you want.

This is a good widget. Isn't it. But I want some additions.

1. There should be a option to select how many posts should be displayed.
2. It also should shows how many Page views the posts has.
