This is the Plugin that I was looking for. Thanks a lot!

Very nice plugin!

Very nice plugin, but I still have an advice that the view counter data should be saved in a new table. Now it was saved in "wp_postmeta". Maybe it can be improved. Never mind, just my idea. Thanks!

Good plugin

By Dao Tien Dung (daotiendung) on August 9, 2019

Awesome plugin, thanks

Thanks for the filter 'postviews_should_count'!

By Mikhail Alferov (malferov) on December 21, 2018

Now I can independently control the logic of counting! Like this:
function exclude_wp_post_views_count($should_count, $id) {
    if ( current_user_can('administrator') ) { // or other condition(s)
        $should_count = false;
    return $should_count;
add_filter('postviews_should_count', 'exclude_wp_post_views_count', 10, 2);

Nice Plugin

Its really a nice plugin. Better if admin is able to keep track of viewers.
