Placing a module to the left or right of a component page. ( in this instance the Polls Result Page)

Hello Experts,

Unless there is another way around this, I have figured out how to add modules ( such as sub-menus, ads etc to a returned component page such as CB Profiles, UddeIM inboxes, and so on by creating a hidden menu item link to that component and using an alias which I can assign modules to. Perhaps there is another way? If so please let me know.

Anyhow the matter here in this instance, is that I although I seemingly have it all worked out for the Polls Results Page , the "Vote" and "Results Page" still go to a URL that has
www.mydomain.com/COMPONENT/Poll instead of
 www.mydomain.com/Poll
Poll being the alias name I used in the hidden menu.

Is there a way to fix this?

Thank you in advance.

thats the best way (but why to use alias? is it for SEF?)

Yes for SEF, is there another way for different results that I am not aware of?

How do I go about getting the buttons "vote" and "results" go to  the aliased page so that the added modules show. I'm thinking those buttons are hard-coded?

if you use a SEF component try to redirect
www.mydomain.com/COMPONENT/Poll to  www.mydomain.com/Poll
