currently I am using this query to display a list of posts:
The problem is that once a post is in the top spot, other posts will have a lot of trouble to gain the same visibility, so I thought that it would be great if you would include another way of sorting posts based on Average PostViews Per Day.
By doing a query to get the difference between post time and current server time you could get the time factor then divide the PostViews by this number... This way, the list would auto-depreciate posts which are old and maybe not receiving a tremendous amount of traffic. And on the other hand, it would give a chance to fresh posts to get a good spot on the list... Post would then be sorted by popularity over time.
To be honest, I've seen other plugins out there already doing this, but I've been a long time user of WP-PostViews and got a whole bunch of views data with it that I would not like to just throw away.
So, do you think you could implement something like: "v_sortby=average" to sort with Average PostViews Per Day?
