How to Get the Most Viewed Products Collection in Magento 2?

Every online store has its most viewed or popular products that make the most sales. Store owners can capitalize on these products by bringing them to the limelight. They can get a collection of their most viewed products and display them at a noticeable place to draw the user's attention.

The display of your most popular products have many advantages including customer engagement, sales improvement and consistent branding.

You can choose and display your most viewed products with a few clicks using our Magento 2 Product Slider Extension.

In Magento 2, it’s pretty simple to get the most viewed product collection. Following are the steps you can take to do so.

Step 1: Create a Block File

First, you need to create a block file (let’s call it BestSeller.php) in the following path.


Add the following code in the file.

namespace FMEextensions\HelloWorld\Block;
class BestSeller extends \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template
 protected $_collectionFactory;
 protected $_productsFactory;
 public function __construct(
 \Magento\Backend\Block\Template\Context $context,
 \Magento\Reports\Model\ResourceModel\Product\CollectionFactory $productsFactory,
 array $data = []
 ) {
 $this->_productsFactory = $productsFactory;
 parent::__construct($context, $data);
public function getMostViewedData(){
 $mostViewedCollection = $this->_productsFactory->create()->addViewsCount(); 
 return $mostViewedCollection;

Step 2: Show Output

Now insert the code shown below in the following phtml file to get product collection from block.

 $mostViewedProduct = $block->getMostViewedData(); ?>
 <h1>Most Viewed Collection.....</h1>
 <?php foreach ($mostViewedProduct as $viewedProduct) {
 <li><?php echo $viewedProduct>getSku();?>--<?php echo $viewedProduct>getViews();?></li>
 <?php } ?>
