How to Hack Google Analyticator Plugin to Display Page Views

Page View on Advertise PageIf you haven’t noticed, I have an advertise page on this blog that displays various OMNINOGGIN statistics for any interested advertiser to see. If you visit that page, you will also notice a little section under “View Counts” that displays the number of page views on my blog in the last 30 days. This statistics is tracked in my Google Analytics account and I use a hacked version of the Google Analyticator WordPress plugin to display it.

The reason why hacked the plugin to display the number of page views is because advertisers usually care more about the number of page views than the number of unique visitors.

In this tutorial I will show you how to hack the Google Analyticator plugin to display the number of page views instead of the unique visitors and display the count in any one of your posts or pages.

Released Buy Sell Ads WP Plugin Version 0.2

Buy Sell Ads optionsBuy Sell Ads WordPress plugin version 0.2 is here!

What’s new this release?

This version of Buy Sell Ads WordPress plugin has two minor enhancements.

  1. Previously the nonce key is automatically generated every time you visit the Buy Sell Ads plugin options page. Now the nonce key automatically regenerates every half hour by default and this interval is configurable. This enhancement helps combat people who visit your blog, comment “It took all of 2 seconds to block all ads from this site”, and run off. When they return more than half an hour later, they will see the advertisement again because the nonce key has changed.
  2. Previously advertisement URLs were redirected through the plugin’s proxy but most of the URL was still unshielded. Now the entire advertisement URL is encrypted into a random string. This enhancement combined with one above officially makes this plugin too smart for AdBlock Plus to figure out.

Buy Sell Ads WordPress Plugin

This plugin is deprecated in favor of the official BuySellAds plugin.

Buy Sell AdsToday I would like to announce the release of ‘Buy Sell Ads’ WordPress Plugin, a plugin to help you easily integrate your Buy Sell Ads zones and includes anti-AdBlock meaures to help prevent AdBlock (and similar software) from blocking Buy Sell Ads advertisements.

You might ask “Why would I want to do that?” Here is why:

  1. AdBlock lowers your ad impression statistics tracked by Buy Sell Ads, which makes your advertisement spot lose value.
  2. Buy Sell Ads advertisers will have an extra incentive to advertise on your site because AdBlock will not be able to block their ads.

Again, feel free to use the comments section for bug reports and feature requests/suggestions.
