Why need to add a post views counter on your blog if you already have one on your "Dashboard"? Its purpose is for our readers to see which of our posts are viewed mostly by others. It is also for us - admins, to monitor the post views in the front end of our blog and to know which of our posts get the attention and interests of our readers.
