What Are Heatmaps?

Last updated

A heatmap is a visual representation of how users browse through your website. Heatmaps indicate activities such as clicks and scrolls on a webpage, and the color code depends on the volume of clicks a particular element fetches.


Analyzing a heatmap report can help you quickly identify visitor behavior and how they interact with a webpage, where they click, if an important CTA or link is getting enough clicks, and other data. Based on your heatmap reports, you can determine where to place your most important CTA buttons and links.

For Example Red areas are the areas with most interactions and the lighter shades like blue or green indicate less activity.
