Ever thought of conducting an online poll or survey on your website? Aside from satisfying your curiosity, a survey might even cause visitors to return to your site to find out the results (since they might be just as curious about the results as you are). The sites listed here provide you a quick and easy way to set up your own polls. They will tally the results and present it in a graphical manner. Some of them even provide methods to discourage people from repeatedly voting (and thus skewing the results). In exchange, the free services typically place advertisements on your polls and the results.
