I am already using Piwik to register all stats of my blog site. What I need now is a simple and lightweight plugin that stores the number of visitors for single posts.

It would be nice if it provides a way to show the number of readings inside the post.

Thank you, it seems what I need. – Drake Aug 21 '10 at 17:55

Well, the mother of all analytics solutions is google analytics. There's a great plugin used to get google analytics called Google Analytics for WordPress. If that doesn't strike your fancy, you can always use WordPress.com Stats, which gives you information on where your visitors are coming from, what they're looking at, and what links they click off of your site.

I need something simpler, I already have Piwik and Analytics (temporary, probably I am going to remove it) for global stats measuring. I need something lighter posts oriented. – Drake Aug 13 '10 at 12:33
you can get stats for individual posts in google analytics, how come that doesn't work for you? – Paul Sheldrake Aug 17 '10 at 10:24
