The Google Surveys platform allows for smarter, faster market research for today’s always on society. It is used by journalists and market researchers alike to help gauge the state of the nation and opinions on topical issues that need to be discussed right now.

From a journalist’s perspective, Google Surveys is a simple tool that allows you to ask the questions that matter to you and your readers and get answers in close to real-time.

Here is a good example of using Google Surveys from Trinity Mirror’s Manchester Evening News. They took what was in essence a national issue but the editorial team made it relevant to their readership in the North West of England.
