Webmaster level: all
We're now offering webmasters a way to collect feedback from your website visitors with website satisfaction surveys. All you have to do is paste a small snippet of code in the HTML for your website and this will load a discreet satisfaction survey in the lower right hand corner of your website. Google automatically aggregates and analyzes responses, providing the data back to you through a simple online interface.
Users will be asked to complete a four-question satisfaction survey. Surveys will run until they have received 500 responses and will start again after 30 days so you can track responses over time. This is currently limited to US English visitors on non-mobile devices. The default questions are free of charge and you can customize questions for just $0.01 per response or $5.00 for 500 responses.
Survey Setup and Code Placement TipsTo set up the survey code, you'll need to have access to the source code for your website.
- Sign into Google Consumer Surveys for website satisfaction to find the code snippet.
- You have the option to enter the website name and URL, survey timing, and survey frequency.
- Click on the "Activate survey" button when ready.
- Once you find the code snippet on top of the setup page, copy and paste it into your web page, just before the closing tag. If your website uses templates to generate pages, enter it just before the closing tag in the file that contains the section.
