(Page 4 of 4 )
So it’s pretty easy to add online polls to your Web site. With free sites, you can include a poll to any part of your site at any time. But if your site is already doing well, why bother to add anything else at all? Even something as easy as polling takes up more of your time -- and you’ll have to be creative to come up with new polls to add to your pages. Why do it?
Online polls combine the elements that are highly popular among Internet users. Because they pose a question and answers, polls offer keyword-rich content that helps draw in visitors to your site in the first place. Because of the way they’re designed, online polls naturally draw the eye and draw interest -- they have their own small box that gives them a graphic look.
And because online polls are interactive, they seem to offer a little bit of fun. Polls also take the time to do something Internet users can appreciate: they ask users to offer their own opinion. In one fell swoop, your traffic gets content, graphic appeal, interaction and the feeling of offering their very valuable thoughts.
Why do online polls work? Because they have so much to offer, but at the same time they’re short, simple and straight to the point -- this is the question, state your response. Anyone can immediately grasp how to use an online poll, and users can almost instantly enjoy the results of submitting their answer to the question being posed.
Online polls also lend a little something extra to your site, giving users the chance to interact with each other and with your site. This feature does a lot for your site and for your site’s users.
So…why aren’t you using online polls on your site?
