Visit Notification is a small but useful plugin that provides realtime notifications via email to the site administrator when a user visits a page, post, taxonomy or custom post type on your WordPress website.
There’s lots of ways to keep an eye on visitors to your website, but sometimes it’s useful to have those quick realtime notifications. For example:
- You’ve sent a link to a client and you want to know when they’ve opened it
- You’ve launched a new page on your website and you want real time notifications when it starts getting visits
- You want to keep an audit of visitors in your email inbox, which may be easier to manage when on the go
Think of Visit Notifications as the “read receipts” for web pages!
Visit Notifications provides a user’s basic information as soon as they visit the page, such as time of access, user agent, HTTP referrer, anonymised IP Address and approximate location and timezone.
Although we don’t recommend usage on a high traffic website, you can change the settings to receive a daily or hourly summary instead which may be useful on higher volume websites.
