Crazyegging

I was crazyegging for a few days, here are the results: WordPress.org home page, WordPress.org support, WordPress.com forums, and for fun, the Photo Matt homepage.

Interesting that “What is WordPress” is so popular. One would think that people should know what it is when they come to this website. Oh and it seems that the installation is somewhat difficult 😉

I’ve been doing so too… to my ultimate dismay, most of my readers are bloody perverts. I found that 35 out of hundred clicks on my blog’s main page goes to a rendered crotch of a valkyrie… WTF

I think this is one of the niftiest site analytics tools I have ever seen. Might give it a try even though I’m not paying much attention to my blog at the moment. Thanks for the coverage.

They’ve both posted screenshots of the “heatmaps” CrazyEgg generates to help us determine not only which links people are clicking, but where. This helps us better understand what people like, so we can adapt our websites accordingly. Until now, this practice was mostly trial and error, and a long process, to boot. […]
