The data you see in this chart was imported using the CSV Import add-on.
I didn’t want to compile the information on different car GPSes myself, so I outsourced it. I’ve found the best way to do this is ask for an Excel spreadsheet with the required data. Then, I can save the spreadsheet as a CSV file and import it using the CSV Import add-on.
Important note: If you are using WPReviewEngine, MyReviewPlugin, WFReview, or have another CSV import tool that supports custom fields, you don’t need to buy the CSV import add-on. Just use your existing CSV import tool to import the data.
Note on outsourcing: I used AskSunday to gather this data. Their rates are a bit more expensive ($13/hr) than what you can find on oDesk.com (<$4/hr) and they require a minimum of 20 hours per month. If you will be using all 20 hours, I think it is worth it. With AskSunday, I spend more hourly, but in the end it really isn't significant. If the site is going to make money, the extra $20 spent on data gathering isn't going to matter much. The benefit of using AskSunday is that if the person you usually work with calls in sick, they will have a replacement for you immediately. With oDesk, you would have to spend valuable time finding another freelancer. Get WP Comparison Charts right now, and have multiple niche product comparison sites ready to promote TODAY.
