Most of those "Hidden features" type polls are junk and don't really serve any purpose other than being there.
It would a nice experiment on traffic if you could just dump that into the tag repo and nominate to the search engines where the 301 should go when you delete the question.
All those "Alternative to X" and "I like this, but not like this" and "Recommend me an app that does jurgo woggle" could all just be closed and their respective tags include:
- Tag list of web apps people are actually using as alternatives
- Notes on how to better their search and where they should look at instead of using another Stack Exchange site as their butler, peeling grapes and serving them up a directory they're too lazy to look at in the first place.
So an example question:
Is there a web app that watches movies for me and tickles my cat about the changes in plane ticket prices?
I be unable to prone myself without the need to know what deals I be losing out on a one-way trip to the Bermuda Trianglez. There is be a web app that will as the title says?

tagged: movies, webapp-rec, travel
In each of the respective tag wikis you'd have:
movies and travel - List of tags of apps that centre around movies and travel respectively. If there are no tags with such apps, then no one is using them, no need to list them.
webapp-rec - Taken out back and destroyed. Or links in the tag repo to Alternative.To, GetApp.com, etc.
