Website traffic is awesome and everyone loves to see their traffic numbers increase. Creating and fostering engagement is a great way to boost loyalty and build community on your site. Star ratings give visitors a way to engage and give feedback on your content, photos, and videos. With Polldaddy, it’s easy to start creating engagement! Here’s how to add a star rating to your blog post in Polldaddy:

1. Login to your Polldaddy dashboard. Select “All Ratings” from the Ratings dropdown menu. (You could actually just click on “Create a Rating” here, which takes you directly to Step 3, but we wanted to show you the nifty Ratings dashboard.)
