How To Add a Poll In Blogger

As blog writer you must be always interested to know views of your readers regarding what they feel about your content, are they satisfied from information provided by you, or disagree with your explanation. This practice is commonly known as reader feedback. In simple words reader feedback may be described as the process of retaining contact with readers.

Developing online communities (is new process of encouraging interaction with readers, in current scenario. Especially with emergence of social networking websites)or integration of feedback page are advanced form of establishing interaction with readers.

Either you can ask this question directly from online forum created by you or by putting the same question in your post. In reply to this some readers may prefer various options or some readers may even ignore to reply on it. Anyhow you will get some concrete replies from which you can make an analyze about their choice. In this regard rating can be a good option in which readers have to rate their choice. But the major drawback of this process is that it may not be authentic. Then what about poll?
