Author Pageviews tracks page views on a per author basis and makes it accessible for monthly reporting and CSV exports. The goal of the plugin is to help content publishers who monetize their sites via CPM based advertising better track and compensate their authors. The plugin is properly escaped and secure. It has been tested with W3 Total Cache and WP Super Cache. It might not properly work with some CSS magnification schemes so please test on your site and compare to Google analytics.

What if I don’t want to pay my authors but just want to track page views?
In order to keep things simple, we do not have a configuration screen to turn off monetization. However, you can put their CPM compensation to $0. We purposely do not attract a lot of attention the the Author Profile tracking feature. Maybe in a future release.
What happens if I run minification?
We actually use CSS as part of our accuracy in counting page views. Unfortunately, if you use CSS minification, we might not work properly with it. We had to make some design choices and all of our sites are based off of frameworks with super clean CSS and we do not minify. In fact, our past experiences with magnification corruption have just steered us clear of the topic all together.
Initial release which included live testing on MidwestSportsFans.Com and Picchore.Com.
