CrazyEgg…you cant help but fall in love..

Filed under: Ajax,Web/Tech — by anshuljain @ 8:35 pm

From what I have seen of crazyegg, it definitely is the rocker of all the beta services that I have tried out. Its simple, uncomplicated, intuitive and best of all looks awesome. I just love their logo. I got myself into the crazyegg beta somehow since I was really keen on testing their service out after the rave reviews on techcrunch. And it has been very very well rewarded. All you got to do after signing up is insert a piece of code in your website and then sit back and enjoy as the beautiful interface takes over and gives information that would make life of a webmaster so much better. I got a blog running up at and tested their service out. Look at the screenshots and see for yourself why I am not kidding.

The above screenshot shows where are your users clicking on. Its in the Overlay mode. Its a very simple way of knowing whos clicking where and from where.

This screenshot shows the total no of clicks on your website in terms of percentages. Nice way to find out why are people clicking more at some places and where at others.

This is the best one. Its called the heatmap. It shows which are the most clicked parts on your website. I do not have too many clicks since its just a test site and the crazyegg session has been on only for like 2 mins.

So now you know why I love crazyegg. Its just simple and shows statistics which you really wanna see and improve upon. Some features that I would want include things like specific IP based tracking, dynamic changes to my website which crazyegg can detect. Oh, BTW all this is done in Ajax, so no more refreshes.

I swear to crazyegg. I hope you too.

  8. Depends you can either insert it into header.php or even footer.php. Either way it works.

  11. Hi Sprons. I went to your blog. It does show that data is being sent to crazyegg while loading. I hope you are not using yahoo as your webhost. And also, you are running wordpress I guess. Also, you wont see a link anywhere, the script would record clicks on your site. Login to your crazyegg account and see if the clicks are recorded.

  12. I saw that… to late 😉 Thnx anyway, cheers.

  16. I am writing thesis on how the web has affected HCI (and vice versa). These tools all look amazing, but I can’t seem to find example of how they’re being used. have good testimonials and looks professional but no screenshots. looks like it not yet complete and crazyegg has not yet launched. Anybody know of companies or HCI experts actually using these?

  17. Just to let you know, has launched, has an online demo, and a free trial.

  19. I’ll definately be trying to get on the beta for crazyegg, I’ve tried similar things before but found they slowed the page loading down, I am assuming this is negligable with crazy egg? (who thought up that name!! I just think of that damn crazyfrog!! ding ding ding)
