    What Can User Ratings and Reviews Do for Your Site? - Adding the R and R: Ratings and Reviews

    (Page 4 of 4 )

    Want to put a system in place so that users can sound off on every product you offer? Think it’d be great to include a rating system so people can quickly vote whether or not they write a lengthy review? You don’t have to hire a programmer or go crazy trying to learn the code. Instead, you can simply purchase a script that you’ll place on your pages to create the necessary links. The script creates the code that creates the systems you want to include -- a very simple way to add these new, interactive features to your pages.

    While the Internet is rich in “freebies,” and you can often find free tutorials and scripts for many features you want to put in place, it can be very difficult to find a good script for the features you might want to add. In many cases, you’ll need to pay to run a script on your site which allows users to enter new review data and log their votes. The scripts, after all, have to be complex enough to record and tabulate votes in order to present some sort of result Internet traffic can easily view.

    Search for sites online which boast the scripts you need, or seek reviews of scripts. Sites like Hotscripts display lists of available scripts and pricing information, with links to the home site of each script. This can make shopping for good scripts easy and effortless -- two words that don’t often apply to Web site design.

    Review Script and Hscripts (pictured above) are just two of the sites which offer rating systems and review scripts for your use. Shop around for the one with the look (and price) you love before you include it on your site. Script not working out? You can always make a change or remove the feature.

    User Ratings and Reviews

    User reviews can add new content to your pages, and rating/voting systems can really help you push popular products. These two features, though they seem simple, can do a lot of great things for your pages.

    But above all they’re great for the customers, who will get to contribute and interact. They’ll get to feel like their opinions mean something, which makes them feel more like valued customers. When traffic is happy with your site, they’ll come back -- and they’ll tell more of their friends about your site, too. What can user ratings and reviews do for your site? They can do much more than add new content and graphics to your products.
