Click Tracking, Session Recording and Heatmaps
We love all of the tool categories on this page, but we especially love these. Basically, Click Tracking and Heatmap tools show us how users are interacting with our pages. They show us where we are getting real visitor's attention and where we aren't, where people actually click on the page, even if the element is not clickable and how people scroll through the content on our pages. Some of the tools even record visitor sessions so that we can see exactly how key user types interact with site thought their session.
