New pMetrics Plugin for WordPress Released
Peformancing has recently announced the release of a new pMetrics plugin for WordPress, which is considered revolutionary and a “major step forward in WordPress plugin technology.” According to Ryan Caldwell, the idea behind the new plugin is to move away from the usual manual way of updating software and plugins, which is especially tedious when running a big number of blogs.
In a nutshell here’s what the pMetrics plugin offers:
- Auto-updates (this option can be toggled on and off)
- One-click installs for added functionality
- One-click removals (deletes files off the server)
- Blog stats in your WordPress dashboard
- Latest searches display
- pMetrics rank display
This new software architecture was done on top of the Performancing pMetrics API. Performancing promises added features soon, such as auto-installation of affiliate banner in sidebar, blog sales page with detailed pMetrics statistics, and feedburner integration.
Download and support notes are available via the announcement page

What exactly is so revolutionary about a plugin that updates itself??
“The innovation that we are introducing is at the level of fundamental architecture and can be generalized for numerous applications…”
UGGGGHHH….this is certainly not for the amateur. The instructions are complicated and I don’t understand how to get it working….
That’s about as clear as mud and reads like most marketing releases – what exactly is so innovative about a plugin?
I guess it depends on what the plugin does that determines whether it is innovative or not. Have you tried it out?
hmmmm, i find this quite fascinating and clever. Great job and good luck with it all
Nice articles, helped me a lot thanks.
