Analyse WordPress Blog’s Traffic Further With Clicks Heat Map

By having and just simply looking at our WordPress blog’s traffic statistics will not bring any value to us. The things after having and looking at the statistics are the one that are important. If not, it is simply a waste of our time which we can use for better purposes.

Where Are Your Traffics Heading?

Rather just knowing from where your visitors come from and to where there heading to, it is crucial to know what area of your WordPress blog that most of traffics are attracted to. By knowing this, you can restructure your blog so that the area that has low exposure can get enough exposure that it deserves.

This can be done by installing script that will inform you in graphics which area has more traffic as compared to others. The area that has more traffic will be in red as it will be blue if it has low traffics.

What are the tools that you can use?

There are two tools that you can use for your WordPress blog – free and paid tools.

Due to the fact that it provides more advanced features, Crazy Egg will charge you on monthly basis. The cheapest plan is at $9/month that entitle you to track up to 10000 visits per month. The rate will get higher base on the visits that you get for you WordPress blog.

Which one suits you?

Personally, I think the free tool is good enough for WordPress bloggers who so not heavily monetize their blog. It is because it still can give you the rough image on the area that most of your traffics focus on.

However, if you have WordPress blog that mainly focus on selling products and want to convert most of your leads to customers, Crazy Egg is a great tool and the money spent will definitely give positive returns.

    With heat maps like this, it’s the best way to determine where ads should be put so that we could maximize revenue from click through.

    Wow click heat looks amazing! You can also use google analytics for this. Inside google analytics is a feature called site overlay. It will pull up a picture of your site and show everyplace where people have clicked. It will show number of clicks and what percentage of overall site clicks a particular part of your site has.

    Really? Got to check this out. I have not explored Google Analytics through and through yet.

  4. Mike says:

    It’s a truly powerful resource. I use it a lot.

  5. ariff says:

    I’m using Chrome and after using the site overlay, it comes out automatically even after I have logged out of chrome. Really annoying. I have to restart the browser to fix the problem

  10. Mike says:

    It is sort of irritating but still it gives you good information.

  11. Mike says:

    I have a friend in web design school. He says the most viewed place on a web page is the upper left. Maybe that’s a good place for an ad.

    Google should look into this or maybe it’s just the cookies that are still there.
