This post is for my fellow bloggers who write about the U.S. election:
Wow, you sure hit a bonanza of eye-popping events to write about during this election! Here in Canada, we can barely keep up with all the insightful blogs and articles about the latest gaffe, scandal or revelation. Thank you for having such an interesting process and colourful players. It’s been truly entertaining!
I have a tool to share with you content marketers and blogger buddies out there. It’s something I stumbled on and thought you might want to include it on your websites or in your blogs as voting day approaches. It’s a site that provides updated poll counts called electoral-vote.com.
It allows you embed an icon (like the one below) in your post, and updates it with the latest poll results. Your readers can stay on top of the poll numbers anytime by visiting your blog. What a super easy way to provide valuable information and keep readers coming back frequently.
Here’s what the tool looks like:
And here’s where you can get the code to embed on your own site. Don’t worry if you wake up the next day after posting and see yesterday’s dates and numbers. I noticed that it was sometime in the afternoon when my icon magically updated itself. Just check it again later in the day.
What do you think of this tool? I’d be interested to know if it increases your traffic, so please let me know in the comments below if it works for you.
