Quick poll: Do you want to answer questions to improve your Google experience?
The Silicon Valley tech giant is testing using poll questions to improve the search results it shows to users. The Times spotted the feature Friday, and Google confirmed it is an experiment the company is conducting.
"We always ask for user feedback in a range of forms -- from live experiments to inviting people in to our UX labs -- in order to improve our products," Google told The Times in an email. "This is one of our experiments -- one of many signals we take into consideration to make search better."
The poll question shows up on the right side of the Web page, and it asks users for feedback on the search results.
