An easy way to ask a few questions within your blog or website is to use Google Forms. Similar to free survey tools like Survey Monkey, Google Forms is self service and customizable. Creating a form is easy and there are several templates to choose from.
WordPress doesn’t allow embedded forms in blog posts but here’s an example from my company naming contest:
What’s great about it is that the submitted info goes straight into a Google Document for analysis.
You can check out the results at any time and even put it a Form results gadget your iGoogle page.
Of course, you may want a more customized form. In that case, you’ll have to look for something more sophisticated. But something quick and dirty, Google has the trick.
