One more step before you pull the toilet. Use a toilet auger instead of a snake. A snake will often bypass a partial blockage in the toilet trap.

If that doesn't fix the problem, pull the toilet and snake the drain but before you put the toilet back in place, turn it over and make sure there is nothing obstructing the trap. things like toothbrushes, makeup brushes, pencils, combs etc. all fall into toilets. They get jammed and gradually collect toilet paper and other "stuff". Snaking, plunging or augering can sometimes temporarilly clear the blockage, but it won't solve the problem.
