If you didn’t already know, WordPress is a hugely popular blogging platform that lets anybody publish content to their very own website quickly an easily. WordPress also has a huge community of plugin developers that work to release plugins or new features to the existing WordPress framework. MARE.io started out as a WordPress plugin, so we know very well the power of this integration.
Installing and setting up MARE Surveys on your WordPress blog is easy with our WordPress Plugin.
Here’s how to setup your account, install the WordPress plugin:

This is the easiest step. Head over to the homepage, and signup. It takes just a few seconds, and is absolutely free.
2. Create a new site within your MARE account
In order to host your MARE Surveys on your WordPress blog, you first need to setup a new site. MARE lets you display surveys on as many websites as you like, so you can always come back and change this information in the future.
From the MARE admin panel, simply click on “My Sites” from the ACCOUNT heading.
This will take you to the sites page. Enter the URL of your website in the “Add new site” form, and click “Save and Get Tracker Code”.
This will create your site, and generate the tracking code.
