Many website owners have difficulties deciding where to place items in order to get the most views. Often designers find it difficult to visualize just how visitors are interacting with different parts of their website. This is where SeeVolution enters the picture, by offering a software that overlays a website’s real-time analytics and a variety of useful heatmaps onto a site.
One of the great uses of the live onsite maps is that it allows owners to discover what parts of their website are popular and which areas need some more work, this is really important when deciding which areas need to be optimized and which areas are already functioning according to plan. As you can see below it seems as if many readers are interested in the freebies on Inspired Mag.
Furthermore since research has shown that the location of your mouse is often also where your eyes are looking, SeeVolution also tracks mouse movement. The importance of this information is that if you know where users keep their mouse then you also have a fairly accurate indication of what they are reading. The screenshot below shows the mouse movement on Inspired Mag.
The third and for many owners very important information is where on their website, the so-called “fold” lies in other words how far down the page do visitors scroll, this gives you precise data on which elements should be before this fold.
As we mentioned earlier in the review, SeeVolution also offers a great real-time analytics, it shows you up to the minute view of your site’s user activity. This is real-time data you can’t live without!
Another great aspect about their service is the price, ranging from $29 to $149 for the professional package. Furthermore for large websites and custom solutions Seevolution.com also offers an Enterprise Plan for its clients.
After having tested SeeVolution for a few days, I must admit that it is probably one of the best analytical tools I have ever used. Not only is it extremely easy to set up and use, however the heatmap and mouse move map simply make this tool amazing.
