Web Analysis Tool: Click Heat Map

Click Heat Map

Download Current Version: 1.0

ClickHeat is an amazing product for Web Developers who are trying to establish high probability click areas. This is very useful during beta testing when you want to know the location of link placement. Currently I am just starting to use it, but the concept of the application can greatly improve the GUI design. It will allow you to take your design and test it against real users during testing. It is greatly important for development, when a user clicks a part of the page that they feel should be a link, and in fact it isn’t. If there are enough clicks to that same location, you might want to rethink that part of the design. You can also generate a heat map which will give you hot and cold click zones. The installation was very easy and in a few lines of code you can have it up and running.

The only downside is that the logs are done as text files instead of being inserted into a database. You would be able to do a whole lot more and taking up less room on the file system. That would be a suggestion that I have to them however, for the knowledge that it can give you, it is a downside that I can overlook for now.
