And the most interesting news is that like lots of exciting features WordPress support this feature very easily.

Here I gathered 10 mostly usable and rocking Rating plugins of WordPress.

    Have to say that the top item on the list – WP-PostRatings – works with WP v. 3.0, just be aware that after activating and fiddling in the settings, you have to insert some code into any php files – see the below link and click on the “Usage” link in the top right corner. Could be easier to find, but at least it’s there!

    I am bit confused over the two: Wp-Post Ratings and GD-Star Ratings… can anyone tell me which one is better, all I need is to give every post multiple ratings by admin and also allow users to rate the post. I want a plug-in that is easy to use and lighter in code. Thanks in Advance.

    Hi there

    Since this is an older post it might need an update since there are some ‘new kids on the blog’, like the Purpe Heart Rating Plugin for WordPress. It can be used for rating articles, media etc. and creates the stars in Google search results. Found it here: wp-buddy.com/products/plugins/purple-heart-rating-wordpress-plugin/
