I would have a page per overall method, and I would not use a rating 
system myself. I can see the point, but by rating them we are swaying 
user choice so possibly reducing the variety of techniques WP users 
employ and this could be considered a strength.
I also think that it will open a huge can of worms of "that plugin is 
better than this" which is best avoided.
