Looking for a great way to increase interaction, encourage repeat visitors, and enhance your content? Seek out ways to use a poll plugin or voting plugin for WordPress.
See our list of the best poll plugins and voting plugins for WordPress in 2021.
Most website owners think that they will never have the chance to use polls or rarely use them but if you think about it for a moment, you’ll find that’s not necessarily true. There are plenty of ways that you can use polls or allow users to vote in order to increase the value of your pages and website in general.
For example, if you are ever comparing products or ideas or even reviewing individual products, you have the perfect opportunity to use a voting plugin. Not only will you give your users more reason to return to the very page they just read, but it also provides you with the more content to improve your website’s SEO through structured data markup.
Here is a list of our favorite plugins:
1. Total Poll for WordPress
If you really do not mind paying a little bit of money for a plugin, then TotalPoll is what you need. No other voting plugin comes close to giving you the stability and functionality that this plugin offers. Anything you can imagine in regards to customization of polls or voting modules can be done here.
Additionally, the plugin also features some nice and modern styling for the feature out-of-the-box, so no need to mess with CSS when getting started.
If you want to test drive the plugin to make sure it plays nicely with your site, they also have a free version in the WordPress repository called TotalPoll Lite that you can download here.
2. Social Polls by OpinionStage.com
The next favorite on our list is the best free poll plugin; a great alternative to Total Poll if you’re looking for the most functionality without paying a dime. OpinionStage also hosts more features than TotalPoll’s free version, so if you’re looking for a free option, OpinionStage is the way to go.
You can download it from the WordPress repository here.
3. Votely By WPGens
If you’re looking to only feature “Yes” or “No” type of questions, take a look at Votely, which offers some unique functionality that many multiple-choice poll plugins don’t.
