Many webmasters assume that they have the best content in the world. But if you are not getting any feedback (or comments) from your visitors, you may be doing something wrong. Adding a thumbs up/down system to your WordPress site lets you figure out if your visitor are liking your posts and the types of topics you can cover to further get in their good graces. Here are 5 plugins that add thumbs up thumbs down functionality to WordPress:

ThumbsUp: lets your visitors rate posts or groups (videos, topics, images) on your site.  You can create an unlimited number of voting groups. It comes with 3 different widgets.

GD Star Rating: adds an advanced rating system to your posts and comments. Provides support for cache plugins. It is available in multiple languages.

Likebot: a decentralized rating system for WordPress. It is easy to integrate into your site and does not require any registration or authentications.

There are plenty of plugins that let your visitors vote on your posts. A positive or negative vote is quite vague and does not give you information on how your visitors actually feel about your posts. That’s where “emoting” comes into play. Instead of asking visitors to give posts a thumb-up or down, you can ask them to tell you how they feel after reading your posts. Emo Vote is just the plugin for that. It lets you define custom fields and gathers useful information from your visitors.

You are in control of what emotions you want your fields to show. Your visitors can get up to 5 options when it comes to choosing the emotion they feel after reading your posts. If people feel too bored or OK about your posts, you may have some work to do.

Many of you have already seen how Digg and Reddit.com work. These sites aggregate stories from around the web and let their visitors vote stories up and down. That makes it easier for their visitors to find stories that are worth reading, with the help of the community behind those sites. Adding a similar functionality to your own website wouldn’t hurt your cause. At the very least, you can help your visitors make their thoughts known about each and every post on your blog. If you spend enough of your time to make sure your posts are of high quality, you shouldn’t be too worried about the votes you get on your posts.

Vote It Up is a cool WordPress plugin that adds a 2 way voting system to WordPress. Your visitors can vote stories up and down. It provides you with the opportunity to modify its skins to change the look and feel of the buttons on your website.
