If you are Using Poll in your Hubpages, How many viewers are casting their vote in the Poll. And which page of yours attracted much voting?
Now only I came to know about the uses. I will add to my Hubs..
But I have voted in others Polls..
I have polls in many of my hubs!...My best browser hub has 477 votes so far!..\
really think poll capsules are very useful to me and handy for visitors!
Not so remarkable % of votes, though page views are good. I'd like to hear from fellow hubbers
I have a poll set up on my Family Bed lens. With 180 pageviews, I have 13 votes. So, that is about 7-8%.
I`m using polls, don`t really remember I think on 3 of my hubs. The best performing poll is on this hub --
How To Make Your Computer Run Faster in 3 Simple Steps
21 people have voted in this poll.
This hub is going to cross the 2000 page views barrier and has only been published for a week or so, I guess that`s why a lot of people voted on the poll.
I've only tried it out in one hub for the hubmob for this week on hair. I'm not much of a fan of it. I like the idea, but I wish it folded better around the other capsules. I tried putting the polls to the right and have an RSS feed to the left, but the entire RSS feed waited until the end of the polls to show, so there was a huge white gape. I also wish they could go side by side, since I have two short ones, and it takes up extra space when I couldn't get anything to wrap around them properly... Oh well... I'm not much of a fan of polls anyway. It is an interesting concept though.
Also, be sure to check out this Forum post regarding Fawntia's first blog post, which just happens to be all about the new Poll Capsule and some really interesting stats that have to do with it.
I think it would be a good idea to allow people to leave feedback along with casting their vote. Perhaps the poll could be combined with the comments capsule, or have the comments capsule bolted on to it? That would encourage vote-casting and people to leave their comments as to why they casted their vote a particular way.
People do have the option of revealing how they voted in a comment, and I think one of the reasons why one of my hubs is doing so well in terms of votes cast in the poll is because it is a secret poll.
I just added a poll to my hub Why I Will Vote of Obama. I've voted on polls in hubs I've read so far. They are fun.
I just checked my Sarah Palin hub and have had 35 votes cast to this question:
Is Sarah Palin Ready For Primetime?
Would You Feel Safe Knowing That Sarah Palin Were A Heartbeat Away From The Presidency?
The current tally has 57 percent saying no, 37 percent saying yes, 6 percent unsure. It's not scientific, but I guess it shows that most of my readers tend to be liberal.
Speaking only for myself, I didn't vote in your survey on the Canadian Prime Minister because I know nothing about either candidate, aside from what you wrote. I put in a "not sure" option in my poll, and that's where I would vote in yours.
I did cast a vote in your four-day work week hub, though.
I have added poll in my hub page at:
to select Who is the hottest and sizzling actress down South India? Since the poll added, about 1100 page views later, 45 persons have voted, which is not what I expected. But the trend of 45 person does match with opinion of all my friends, that is one thing, that made me happy.
I actually created a hub just to use a poll
I've gotten 98 visits and 14 votes, and some of those visits are return visits so I'm thinking that I got about 20% of people voting or more.
Since the hub was for a specific purpose, I'll be taking it down, though.
I think that merely 10% of the Visitors are interested in participating in Polls.
I just used my fist poll in my last hub about the Galveston Media Blackout and Coverup. About 32 people voted so far, and I love the fact that I can get real time thoughts about what readers are really thinking. Since I write some controversial hubs sometimes, this will be a useful tool in finding out what people are really thinking. I love the new poll tool!
Yeah HubPages! Keep up the great work!
I use polls in almost all my hubs. Some are sucessful, some are not...
It depends of course of the popularity of the hub, but also of the way you do the poll... I noticed that the funnier ones and with less options tend to give you more cliks.
And never put polls like: Was this info useful, or something... that's what the thumbs are for!
My most sucessful one has 70 votes at the moment (not bad considering it was done less than 2 weeks ago)... http://hubpages.com/hub/Guiness-Longest … allest-Man
The trick to having a poll get a lot of interaction is to have a good question, something that gets people going.
So far, the poll on my hubs with the most interaction is on http://hubpages.com/hub/nose-piercing-info
The poll asks "Do you think employers/businesses are over-reacting when they make people take out or cover their nose piercings for work?"
Hot button topic with a really opinionated response. So far, it's had 144 votes and I only added it when the poll feature was first available.
I think they are a fun way to add fun to an already fun hub. For serious topics, they are pointless I think. I put one in my silly pets Amoeba hub and people seemed to like voting for all their favorite ridiculous pet, so, since the verdict wasn't meant to mean anything, it worked great. Beyond something like that, I can't see the point.
I put one in my Things to do in a Small Town hub, just as a test. I think I have less than 30 votes, but I haven't looked at it lately. It was my first hub, so I wanted to play with the capsules a little. I'm not sure how well polls would do in any of my other hubs, since I haven't made a poll after that first hub, but who knows? Maybe I should put one in my proper English hub, just for laughs.
I have started adding poll in my hubs. I hope it will get response.
i just started weeks ago and i tried using polls..well..i don't think it worked so i just had one poll and never created another one after..but it looks cute though....just an add-on to your site
Just added my first pole on my latest hub. No results yet.
I've got a couple of polls up. They really aren't getting a whole lot of response except on my most popular hubpage about my Mirena IUD experience. It has 228 people who have voted.
Posing a question that your readers really want to know what others think is the key to getting a good response of voters.
I added the poll long after the hub had been posted. It seem many of the comments made by readers were about Mirena and weight gain. So in addition to reading through all the comments, I added the poll and gave the readers an opportunity to see quick numbers of what the weight gain experience of other women was. It's a good visual to back up the comments.
I can see that most of the visitors don't spend time to vote there in hubs
The trick to using polls is to 1) make sure they are near the top of the hub so that they really catch the reader's attention and 2) make sure the question is clear cut in regards to the hub topic.
My nose piercing poll now has over 400 votes, because the question deals with the hot button issue around nose piercing: are employers over-reacting when they make people take out nose piercings?
I have added poll capsules to many of my hubs. My hubs did not attract so many votes but some of them are doing pretty well.

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...
