I’ve often thought about a service which let us get our Readers’ views in the easiest way! I have always given priority to my READERS rather than TRAFFIC. When I started Blogging in early 2013, After few days, This thing came to my mind – ‘Is there any Plugin which allow me to get my views and thinking of my Readers over an Article, Content or something like that with just a click of button’. What I done that time was quickly searched Google and WordPress Plugin Directory but couldn’t find any result, soothing to me
Than This thing just disappeared from my Mind. I totally forgot about it thinking that there’s nothing like that available. But I was wrong! Few days back, I was browsing through my friend’s Blog and suddenly my eyes stood on a small widget after the Post which was asking me to Rate that Post on a scale of 1 to 5.
I quickly clicked on ‘5’ and than It asked me a ‘Yes/No’ Question and I answered it with a Yes!
I really loved that widget and wanted to install it on my Blog as soon as possible. I quickly contacted that friend on whom’s Blog I found that widget. Soon what I got to know is that This is a Plugin for our favorite WordPress called FeedWeb!
I quickly installed it and If you guys have noticed, I’m using this FeedWeb widget on many of my Posts to get my Readers’ feedback from last 3 Days!
Now you guys may wonder that what exactly is FeedWeb?
Sure! I’m here to tell you that as It’s a FeedWeb Review 😉
What is FeedWeb? FeedWeb Review!
FeedWeb is actually a Voting/Feedback plugin that allows us to get feedback/views of our readers on a particular Post on which we have installed the widget. It shows the readers, a small widget that asks them to rate that Post on 1 to 5 scale. After they rate it, They immediately get a question (set by Post Author) that is generally a ‘Yes/No’ question! After they choose their desired option on that ‘Yes/No’ question, The reader immediately get the Results of the Voting. The system admin also gets a stat of all the questions readers have answered!
I am using this plugin for 3 days now and I’ve got only positive results. With this plugin I get to know what my readers think about my Blog and my Blog Posts, Which will obviously help me in improving TechBin.org!
In only 3 days days I’ve got around 40 votes on my Posts on which I’ve embedded the widget. Cool isn’t it? 😉 Readers also love to give feedback on anything when It’s so easy like that!
The Best thing: You also get Traffic using FeedWeb!
This is the top reason why I started using FeedWeb and now loving it! Who don’t want more & more Traffic to their websites/blogs? Well, If It’s the case with me, I love it 😀 I think all of us does. I never miss a single opportunity to get more Traffic to TechBin.org!
FeedWeb also ‘understand’ me and they have taken care of that! You also get traffic by using FeedWeb on your Blog. Actually, When you add a FeedWeb widget to any of your Post, It allows you to share that Post on FeedWeb.net , A community for FeedWeb users where they can share and promote their latest Articles and thus get Traffic from there!
More than 1800+ websites are using FeedWeb so that means that they have a lot of users and your Articles have a lot of chance of exposure through their Community! According to them, you can easily get around 50 visits a day on your Post that you have shared with the FeedWeb community! Going with the latest, Till now, More than 225,000 votes are collected through 12,500 blog posts! Well, that isn’t a small figure man 😀
On their WordPress Plugin Page, I just saw that they are just near to 50,000 Downloads! That’s awesome!
