Not recommended
By , for WP 4.2.2

Hello,
i just activated plugin free version which would let me to use free features but after 2 weeks i can't access to reports page to see who voted to my posts.
it is push me to buy pro version. but developer said 1m pageview is free feature.

Not recommended.

not worth installation
By ,

not able to customize the stylesheets, the tool adds many unwanted links to the page ratingwidget. Not adaptable to user stylesheets. They do very good marketing but the plugin is not worth the installation. Very very poor...

No Rich Snippets
By , for WP 4.2.2

the free version is very deceiving, it does not say that rich snippets is only available in pro-version. I only realized it when i saw this ad on the plugin page asking me to upgrade to get google rich snippets.
without the rich snippets i do not get what is the purpose of this plugin, and the pro version is pretty over priced.
Also i keep getting emails from their site even after i unsubscribed.

Needs external account
By , for WP 4.2.2

Used to like this plugin, but now: Once installed it asks you to make an account at their site which is not handy if you want to use this system in client sites.

Monthly subscription fee? I don't think so!
By , for WP 4.1.1

What looks like a useful free plugin turns out to be a software service with a monthly subscription fee. What crock!

BUNCH OF GREEDY AUTHORS
By , for WP 4.1.1

WOW! THIS PLUGIN CHARGE $8/M TO ASK ME FOR THE GOOGLE RICH SNIPPET? DEFINITELY DESERVED ZERO STAR & REMOVED FROM WORDPRESS.ORG

REMEMBER THAT "THE RISKIEST THING YOU CAN DO IS GET GREEDY"

Advertisment and page slowing
By , for WP 4.1.1

Ive uninstalled it, you should not force people to pay for pro, by placing ads. I suggest using any other rating plugin.

The Pro version never works, bad support
By , for WP 4.1.1

I have used this plugin for about 3 months and I am always having issues with it. I am using the Pro version to get the google rich snippet. The plugin never worked smoothly and whenever I contact support, I had to wait more than a week to get an answer by email. This review is for the pro version, not sure how the free version works.

My advice save your money and look for other plugins if you are looking to generate star snippet for search engine purposes.
