Graphiq Search


The Graphiq Search Plugin gives you seamless access to more than 10 billion pre-designed, interactive visualizations. We scan the content of your article and scour our knowledge graph to find the most relevant visualization matches to maximize user engagement and help your content stand out.

All Graphiq visualizations are live-updating and built upon the world’s deepest knowledge graph, comprised of 270B+ data points across thousands of important topics, from companies and health to entertainment and sports.

To begin, click the “Add Visualizations” button above the post editor. If your post contains any content, we’ll begin searching for visualizations that match what you’re writing about. You can also directly access Graphiq Search from within the Graphiq Search Plugin and search for something specific, see trending visuals, or browse by category. To start a search, simply begin typing in the search box in the WordPress sidebar.

Once you’ve found the visualization you want to use, click the “Add” button to insert the visualization into your post. The content will appear as a gray placeholder within your article. To see the content in action, simply preview or publish your post.

The plugin includes access to billions of data visualizations covering 1,500+ topics (ex: Presidents), 500 million entities (ex: Donald Trump), and billions of data points (ex: Trump’s
historical approval ratings compared to other presidents).

Flashy, Spammy Ads Kill Promising Product’s Value

I never write reviews but Im writing this because this was once the most promising plugin on WP but recently shot itself in the foot with over-the-top, animated ads which kill any credibility this plugin provides by making your site look spammy, slowing it down, and steal the visual appeal of the graphic.

I get it, its a huge cost to provide the data they provide and although I’m sure their partners, AP, AOL, HuffPost, etc. can afford having no ads but, for small publishers, this plugin is now useless though I was completely okay with their previous version with their watermark and link to site.

There are other options out there and I hope the author realizes that. No other plugin does this to the extent where its visual benefit is now destroyed. I can find/create graphs, they just made it a little easier- but not at this cost.

I hope the author will resolve what I believe to be a completely self-defeating feature to an otherwise great product that deserved a 5 star review- I gave it 2 for at least offering a great plugin the past. Maybe Im ungrateful but I was happy to give them and their affiliates credit/traffic for graphics, not make my site look its 1999.

If the author would like to make changes such as advertisements that dont distract from their visuals, I would be happy to fix my rating. I think thats reasonable considering they make money in conjunction with large publishers who split revenue off ads and exchange information/traffic. The visual cost now outweighs its benefit, its simple as that. Its a stupid business decision considering their business is literally based on visual appeal.

-fresh, unique insights into trending topics
-up-to-date data
-visually-aesthetic visuals and graphs (minus, you know, animated multi-colored banners I havent seen since 1999)
-search graphs

-author doesnt include their use of obnoxious ads in screenshots, literally clips the screenshot where ads would be
-track users, sell information to content providers/advertisers
I get it, ads are necessary given how much time and money goes into such a great plugin but colorful, animated 3rd party banners on a plugin meant to enhance aesthetic value and boost reader engagement is, in my opinion, stupid given Graqphiq’s watermark is ALREADY ON THE PRODUCT (as well as links to the sites the information comes from). Watermarks are absolutely okay but flashy banners in addition to your own 3X WITHIN THE CONTENT arent when cheapen any “credibility” these graphics add by making your site look like a spam site

Sad end to one great, promising product.


An example of all the links and ads on visuals (circled = link to graphiq). Banner was animated, wouldnt stop moving (page opened for 30 min), and doesnt match colors in graph
