Yahoo!'s poll technology enables Edmunds.com, NYTimes.com and Yahoo! Autos visitors to share their opinions online. Additionally, visitors to these sites can view the results from a Yahoo! Autos survey of auto show attendees in Detroit that provides the general public's opinion on what's hot in the automotive world. Also, all the network's sites are benefiting from the inclusion of The New York Times' articles and reporters' participation in a videotaped roundtable discussion of the show's highlights.
"We are pleased to be able to bring comprehensive auto show coverage not only to our own site's visitors, but also to automotive enthusiasts on the websites of these world-renowned companies," remarked Seth Berkowitz, Edmunds.com's Vice President of Business Development.
