What Is a Heatmap
A question that we often get is “what is a heatmap?”, with this being our core competency at Hoverowl, we love helping our customers understand heatmaps and how they can leverage them to increase sales on their website.
Simply put a website heatmap is a report that aggregates a collection of mouse movements and clicks on your website, so you can get a thirty thousand foot view of how your visitors interact with your website. With a website heatmap, the colors are very similar to what you’d see while watching a weather report of a storm or temperature. Website heatmaps work in a very similar way, the hotter the area looks, is the area of your website that more visitors have focused on.
So how do I apply this to my website?

Quite quickly you can identify how effective your current website and flow is received in your visitors eyes. Other types of reports include the mouse click tracking report, which you can simply identify the elements that your visitors actually click on.
