PopuList allows you to track the popularity of your posts on social bookmarking sites reddit, stumbleupon, del.icio.us and digg. When PopuList is activated, a page is added to your dashboard giving the number of times a page has been saved or upvoted.
New in version 1.5 PopuList now also lets you view backlinks as indexed by Google and Yahoo.
- Upload the plugin (unzipped) into
/wp-content/plugins/. You should end up with a
/wp-content/plugins/Populist/directory containing the plugin files.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Go to the Dashboard and click the link for Populist in the menu to view your stats.
- Why do my StumbleUpon rankings never go higher than 5?
All the other rankings are the number of times a page has been saved or upvoted. StumbleUpon however don’t provide the exact figures, so the number is a rating out of 5 (5 means the page is VERY popular!)
