Visual In-page Web Analytics

Visual In-page web analytics is the analysis of visitor behavior within a particular webpage or a product.

It differs from traditional web analytics, which focuses on visitor movement between pages rather than on one particular page. In-page web analytics software includes click-tracking, mouse-tracking, and session replay tools, many of which display what areas of a webpage receive the most visitor attention.

These tools are generally used to understand visitor behavior for the purposes of optimizing a website's usability and conversion rate. Visual analytics are different from traditional web analytics that mainly focus on visitor movement between pages because visual analytics focus on the behavior exhibited on one particular page.

Picture below shows the difference between traditional analytics and visual analytics.

There are several types of tools that belong to the category of In-page analytics. We provide the following:

  • Heatmaps: The Mouse Move Heatmaps are a comprehensive visual representation of what visitors are looking at and focusing on within a webpage based on mouse moves from thousands of visitors to a site. Three types of heatmaps: Mouse Move, Mouse Click, Scroll Reach.
  • Form Analytics: Form Analytics provides an in-depth view of your visitors’ interactions with your web forms. It displays which fields the form is being dropped at or which fields take the most time to complete.
  • Session Replay: Session Replay records and replays a visitor's journey on a web site or within a web application.
