Help other WordPress users find the best plugins for their own needs by posting a review for the plugins you are using.

The problem: There was no place to find independent user reviews of premium WordPress plugins. That is why I added such a user review feature here on WPscoop.

Together with my detailed pricing and feature comparisons I hope to make WPscoop one of the best resources to choose and compare premium WordPress plugins.

Please take a few minutes and leave a review for your favorite (or least favorite) plugins by following the links below. It will help others make the right choice!

Some More Details

Why not just go to WordPress.org for user reviews?
The official WordPress plugin directory is great but does only allow listings (and thus reviews) for free plugins. That means you won’t find any user ratings there for commercial plugins like Gravity Forms, Envira Gallery, Backup Buddy and many others.

Why do we need user reviews for premium plugins?
In my opinion reviews by actual users allow you to best judge the quality of a product. For WordPress plugins you can find plenty of reviews on news sites and popular WP blogs, but often those are done by writers who are not actual (long-term) users of the product in question. Other times they are created for monetary interests, e.g. as a sponsored post or containing affiliate links. In either case they usually only give a relatively shallow overview of the plugin in question and fail to expose any flaws a regular user might.

Why is plugin X not listed here?
I have decided to tie the user reviews feature to my own plugin comparison articles, each of which takes a look at the most popular plugins in a certain niche or for a certain task. I feel like this the reviews provide the most value to visitors: My comparisons provide an objective look at features and prices, the reviews provide a subjective verdict by you and other users.

I spot some free plugins listed in your comparisons!
My comparisons do also include freemium plugins, which have a free basic version available (which might be listed in the official plugin directory) and make money by offering paid addons. Ideally user reviews for such plugins on WPscoop should focus on the paid features of these plugins (which is discouraged by WP.org moderators, where the free version should be reviewed).

Good idea, how can I help?
First of all naturally by leaving a review for the plugins you are using! Then I would appreciate if you could tell others to do the same, for example by sharing this article on social networks. If you have any feedback, ideas or suggestions that is always welcome as well of course.
