  1. I downloaded this widget and it only showed one “page”, which was the homepage of my blog. It did not show the popular posts.

  2. Hi Kb,

    The way this widget works is it tracks the page views of your individual posts.

    The posts that get the most hits will then be the most popular posts.
    So since you have just added the widget it has not picked up any hits yet.

    So within the hour as your blog posts get some hits it will start listing the popular ones.

    Thanks for the comment im going to edit the post to include this info…

    Paul.
