Numbered Popular Posts Widget for Blogger

Numbered Popular Posts
So I am back with yet another Popular Posts customization for blogger blogs. This one is quite special as it looks extremely elegant and has cool transition effects when hovered.

We can rarely see blogs which do not use Popular Posts widget. This widget decreases bounce rate and increase the pageviews of your blog. Making them attractive and eye-catching will make more people click on it hence making your blog more awesome and better.

I have already posted Popular Posts customization tutorials many a times. You can check them out below.




You can see a live working demo of this popular posts widget by clicking the button below.
