Watch people browsing your site

watch and record web visitors

Clicktale says it will record your visitor’s browsing sessions and allow you to watch them later as if you were standing over their shoulder while they browsed. It also provides you with ‘Heatmaps’ showing where most people click and how far down the page they scroll.

As with all web analytics, you need to add a few lines of code to each web page. The site claims the code only adds 10k to the page for the user and a 2k upload per page so it shouldn’t slow down their browsing, nor will they notice any difference.

If you’ve ever wished you could focus-test your website and watch how people use it; this sounds like the closest you can get for free. The free version lets you view 100 random recordings per week on a maximum of 2 domains.

I haven’t tried it yet but I plan to try the free version, I’ll let you know what I think once I’ve tried it, I am curious to see whether it will show any substantial visitors.
