Open web analytics and GA have a heatmap…I’d love one in Piwik, too



Use the Overlay?

yeah the idea’s the same, BUT a heatmap just looks better.
ie its not without a reason that crazy egg, has overlay, and heatmap (and scrollmap)

This is supposed to be features request, so merely saying use something else, doesn’t change the fact, that a heatmap would be a nice additional feature !

I didn’t try it yet but did had a look at Plugin for Click map · Issue #5493 · matomo-org/matomo · GitHub ?


We tried ClickHeat in 2011 and it worked fine for a while but didn’t scale. ClickHeat attempts to store its log files in directories under a common directory. Unfortunately, when the number of pages is large, this flat structure exceeds the Linux OS’s limit of 32k items per directory.

A better (or rearchitected) heatmap plugin would be fantastic.

Good news: we’re working on Heatmap Analytics for Piwik + scrollmap + click map! It will be awesome and make sure to hear when it’s released by signing up here: http://www.heatmap-analytics.com/

We've just released Heatmap + Session Recording for Piwik Analytics!

More info:

  • Heatmaps show you where on a page your visitors click, move the mouse and how far down they scroll so you can discover which content your visitors actually pay attention to, where your content is confusing, and whether your content is engaging. Based on this information you can improve your content and page structure and ultimately increase your conversions.
  • Session Recordings lets you record all clicks, mouse movements, scrolls and form interactions of a visitor so you can replay them in a video. See exactly what your visitors did on your website to truly understand them. Find out where they have problems or get confused to improve usability and conversions.
