CrazyEgg is a good tool but I’m confused about which analytics tool to use. There are so many :S Currently, I’m settled with Google Analytics and StatCounter
Shankar Ganesh says
Thanks for that reply, Ram 🙂
try this one, its really worth
I also use Google Analytics and Statcounter for web analytics. These will tell you how many hits you site is getting and who is referring your site.
Crazyegg is different from these tools, it gives you clear idea what your visitors are doing in your site. You can use this tool for short time, say for one month and test where your ads are performing better, what parts of your web page are getting much attention. So that you can focus on those areas on which your readers are showing interest.
This tool is pretty amazing. I haven’t implemented it since I moved to my new webhost, but this may inspire me.
its a nice tool gives pretty good statistics
For the clicks heatmap you can also test the latest version of the open source web analytics software phpmyvisites http://www.phpmyvisites.us/
It works very well for the heatmap (demo on http://www.phpmyvisites.us/phpmv2/index.php?lang=en-utf-8.php&mod=clickheat.view_clickheat&site=1&adminsite=1&date=2007-07-25&period=1&action= )
and with this free app you control and own your data 🙂
