MC Visitor Tally is an easy-to-use visitor counter for your website.
- You will see your unique site visitor counts in different date ranges: Today, Yesterday, Past 7 Days, Current Month, Current Year.
- This plugin prevents the majority of bots and crawlers from being counted as visitors to your website.
- Visitor counts are shown in an admin dashboard widget which will appear when the plugin is activated.
- The dashboard widget also tells you when the plugin was installed so you know when the counts on your website began.
- A shortcode allows you to place the tallies on website pages, sidebars, and/or footer.
- The year-to-date line on the shortcode can be turned off. You may activate the plugin mid-year and not want to show the YTD numbers until a new year starts.
- Visitor records more than 53 weeks old are automatically deleted from the plugin’s database table.
- The database table that stores visitor records is normally removed when the plugin is deleted, but not when the plugin is updated.
- If you choose, you can set the database table and selected options to not be removed if you intend to delete, then re-install the plugin.

How do I add the counter to website pages or sidebars?
Add the shortcode [mcvt-visitor-tally] where you want the counter to appear on pages, footer, or sidebar widgets.
Will the records bloat my website’s database?
This counter will keep records for the past 53 weeks, and will delete all older records.
Will the records stay in my website database when I delete the plugin?
No. Deleting the plugin also deletes the table that stores visitor records. Because of this, re-installing the plugin will re-start the counters at zero. If you wish, on the settings page, you can set the plugin to not-delete records if you intend to re-install the plugin.
