    Why Online Polls Work

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    "Do you like me? Check yes or no.” As children, we discover the value of polling early. As adults, we learn the importance of polling in all things. Isn’t it through the polls that some world leaders are chosen? But politicians aren’t the only ones who use polls. In fact, you’ll find polls all over the Internet.

    Polls can be found at the ends of articles, as complements to blog posts, and there are even sites which feature practically nothing but online polls. They’re everywhere! Find out why online polls work -- and why you should be using them on your site, too. 

    Online polls have become a staple of the Internet; a very common feature used by all types of Web sites. Sites featuring the most glib content to the most serious news stories will include online polls and online poll results, making the feature one of the most ubiquitous on the World Wide Web. But why are they so popular? Because online polls work, that’s why. 

    Features of the Online Poll

    Online polls, surveys and verification forms may all have a similar look and many of the same characteristics. Creating a true online poll, however, means adhering to certain features of this device. How do you know you’ve got a poll on your hands? Just look for the warning signs. 

    In this poll featured on Mister Poll (, only a single question is asked. Multiple choices are offered as answers. Clickable radial buttons and another submit button at the bottom allow anyone and everyone to cast their vote with ease. This poll also contains links which allow users to view the results, send a message or flag the poll itself. Change the question, change the answers and this poll could be any one of several hundred polls scattered all over the Internet. 

    Notice the features of this (and every other) online poll, and you’ll have a much better idea of how you can create one of your own. A poll presents only a single question for consideration, with multiple answers for users to pick between. Some polls may offer only a simple yes or no, while others may contain much more elaborate answers for users to click.

    When a single question is presented with a few short answers from which users can choose, you’ve created an online poll…in theory, anyway. To take your poll from imagination to the Internet, you’ll have to take a few steps in between.
