Polls on Hubs?
Where to you usually place yours?
Have you noticed if placement effects participation in your polls.
I generally place mine on the right side just below the first photo. You want it high enough that it gets attention early during the visit. In my experience, participation is more affected by how concise the poll question and options are.
I usually place polls at the end of my hubs. I may change the placement because my readers do not seem interested in participating.
I just recently started putting polls in some of older "idle" hubs to see if it might jump start them. Each of them has picked up a couple of views since then so I guess it must be doing something.
As for the placement, I generally have been stickin 'em towards the end of the article. I figure that way the reader has made it all the way to the end and can make their decision based on the info in the Hub.
I put them close to the information that people are reading so that they can just click on the poll there and then.
I think this is the best placement. If they are at the end people may forget what they were thinking.
I normally place the polls at the end of my hubs. This way it gives the readers a chance to finish reading the hubs, and then make their choice in the poles. I've always enjoyed reading the results no matter how old the hub is. The pie chart has always been my favorite.

I've enjoyed placing polls on my hubs, usually to fill up space next to an RSS feed. The questions tend to ask about the reader's experience with the topic of the hub and a few related topics (such as different ways to...

I have noticed it is hovering just below 85 recently. I have a few Hubs with a score of around 71, could this be the reason?

I have been a member of Hubpages for a while but did not understand the true value of it until recently; I began updating old hubs and every one updated so far has ended up featured. I hope to do the 30 in 30 once...
