I just found out via TechCrunch that a new free visitor tracking service called ClickTale is available. ClickTale lets you see heat map movies that show the hot spots on your blog where people click. But it does more than that. According to TechCrunch, other metrics include:
Hovers over Links – counts users hovering over a link. This is particularly useful when lots of people are hovering over a link but deciding not to click.
Hovers to Clicks – a conversion metric. Tells you how many of those ?hovers? turn into actual clicks.
Hesitation – the average time between hovering over a link and clicking it.
Time to Click – the average time between the page loading and a user clicking a link.
Did I mention It’s Free?
ClickTale’s service is free for up to 100 pages recorded per week. Only a random sampling of pages is recorded. You want more, you pay. They also have a blog, where you can read all kinds of self-serving case studies. The free service from ClickTale starts Monday, August 6, at 6:00 a.m., EST.
