Hello everyone,

I want to add each poll to each my blog post, asking relevant question and getting extra info.

Is it a good idea or that will become an odd thing?

Well I would say try it out... You're never going to know if it increases engagement until you try.... I do know quizzes work really well such as buzzfeed on social media so if your poll results can be shared or the data captured offers value/interest then go for it... If it doesnt work out then at least you have tried... You'll probably find that its the subject of the polls which matters...

Actually, that's a really good idea and something that is rare. So just as long as you can make it entertaining and most importantly, worth sharing then you have yourself a winner.

I say go for it, it's actually a great idea and I think with the right promotion and audience it will work well and go viral.

One tip I would give you is that: make it easy for the visitors do take the poll without jumping through a bunch of hoops and make it easy for them to engage. Also entice/encourage them to take the poll, engage or share by giving them bonuses/freebies.

I can already picture a big site with loads of companies fighting to buy it for its data/information :)

This is a type of idea that can also attract venture capitalists so go for it and be smart.

I like polls. It makes for another method of interaction in forum posts.

Easy, free, and can be fun and interesting to see the results.

Then again, I'm a bit of a numbers nerd. I love numbers, statistics, spreadsheets, etc so naturally I would enjoy polls too!

I would think if it is relevant to your site content it would be a good way to gather some data.
