Limit Post Views for Non-Members a la New York Times

Inspired by sites like The New York Times, which limits visitors to 5-10 monthly article views before redirecting to a paywall. The plugin sets a cookie for each visitor to track their views per month. You can set the number of visits and once that limit is reached, the visitor is directed to your Membership Levels page and must sign up to view additional posts.

Great for SEO

This add on is also a great workaround to allow search engines “in” to index your content.

If you set post views to 1, search bots can access posts and index them. We’re working on other unique code to allow search bots to scan your full site for SEO, but until that time this is the interim solution.
