Update: October 11, 2008 : PollDaddy polls have now been included in wordpress.com blogs.
There are many different third party providers of free polls on the internet. However, it’s important to note the following:
- Update: Only the nexodyne polls and gfx polls display dynamic updating on the blog as the votes are cast but, the nexodyne polls are too large to fit into a sidebar so, they must be placed either on a static page or in a post.
- The polls listed below must be set up on the third party site and linked to from a text widget, a post or a static page, as the voting must take place on the third party site and not on the blog.
- To create the appearance of an onsite poll bloggers can simply create an image of and upload it into a text widget or onto a static page or post, linking the image to the third party poll for voting.
