I logged into my PollDaddy account this morning and was pleasantly surprised when I found a new feature waiting for me: rating widgets.
The free tool is currently in early beta, but it gives blog owners the ability to add “rate this post” functionality with minimal work. The sweetest part is that you can use your own images, meaning that whatever widget you create, can match the look and feel of your site.
There are two widget options:
- Star rating. Gives the reader a scale of 1-5 to rate your content. It will also display the number of votes received.
- Nero rating. Gives just 2 options to the reader and would be used like a simple positive/negative scale. For example, thumbs-up or thumbs-down.
Just add a snippet of code to WordPress or your blog platform and you’re in business.
