It would be very nice if we could close a poll capsule in such a way that:
A. No further votes can be made by visitors.
B. The previous results are still displayed.
C. A little sign says “Poll Closed.” or some such.
or you wll have the option to present the results in bar, line, graph or a pie chart like in PPT (powerpoint)
I know they can do it - the hubnuggets work like that!
This feature is now available to everyone. Thanks for your input.
Sorry to temporarily hijack the thread - but as you are poll users - do you find any impact on your AdSense for hubs with polls? Once a reader's clicked the poll, are they getting click happy and clicking an Ad, or are they all clicked out and just walk away?
I have no idea on that. I use them either as an extra piece of color on the hub or as a way to check if the hub was helpful.
My best poll has about 1700 votes. But it is at the bottom of a hub which has had over 20,000 hits.
I think this is a very good question! Feel free to hijack away!
Edit: My tentative theory is "Once a reader's clicked the poll, they may get click happy and click an Ad (paraphrased)", i.e. what’s in motion tends to stay in motion.
That's what I was wondering, as if they get a buzz from the first click and then click on an ad. I think polls are a really compelling way to draw people into your hub- which begs the question why have I NEVER bothered to use one.
Wry - 20k on one hub!!!!! That's fantastic. My best hub ever has only got half that. Your traffic is great, just gotta get those $$$. - I just sent you an email about it.
However it's only my second best. I have a facebook app guide with 24k views total - only problem is that I have no idea what to sell to people who want to play facebook apps all day!
Wanna email me which one it is and I'll take a look and see if I can think of a relevant Amazon page. But if it is getting good Google traffic maybe leave it alone. Also I have seen some great Ads pop up which entice you to click to play a game so maybe you could add some wording or tags about online games to encourage those ads?
A good way of using the polls is to capture interest in people, by asking them questions and gaining valuable feedback on what to present to them in another hubpage.
I've done this and asked questions which just asks them to vote on the poll on the answer that best suits them and it's the top voted answers that could provide measurable feedback to act on!
Thanks Wayne. I really need to put some thought into adding these. Now I feel I have got the jist of picking keywords I have been putting more effort into my newer hubs (I hope you noticed). Next step will be to integrate so polls.

Hi all. I have set up Amazon Affiliate program on hubpages and featured Amazon products on a number of my hubs. Looking at it after a while, the link-type report in the Amazon account shows that no one has clicked on the products so far. I wanted to know whether this actually works, so I clicked on...

Have you ever used a Poll capsule in one of your hubs?My first time was today, in four new hubs which make "A Hitchhiking Saga." Fun way to invite participation from readers!Where have you put the code outside Hubpages to bring traffic to your hub?

I use it to get feedback from readers of my troubleshooting hubs about whether the hub helped or not. If the poll showed results and a high percentage of "yes" votes, it might be an incentive for readers to continue reading. Normally I put polls at the bottom of hubs, but maybe they...

I feel bound by my pride as a writer not to click it but it looks more tempting every time I scroll by to check my polls
