7 Best Heatmaps for Website Optimization

If you are not collecting user experience data on your website, how do you really know what parts of your website are effective and which are dead weight? Heatmap tools create an overlay on the web pages and highlight areas with higher activity as compared to the lower activity. With this, you will be able to get a clear idea about where your users look, click and scroll. Note that heatmap tools are quite different from other analytics tools as they help you to understand user interactions with your website design, and allows you to tweak your website and increase your website conversions.

There are plenty of companies that offer Heatmaps for Websites; so it can get overwhelming choosing one. We have compiled a list of 7 of the best heatmaps for website optimizations.

Heatmap.me is one that I have used in the past for conversion optimizations. It is super simple to use. It is easy to install and comes with a very small JavaScript code that loads asynchronously without slowing down your website. Heatmap.me offers a free plan limited to 5 pages on 1 site.
