Track when user scrolled to particular section/article/content

I’m looking to know if a user scrolled past a particular section of a longer page.

Imagine a blog post listing with teaser text for each post. I want to know if a user scrolled “below the fold” or to the 10th blog posting. There would be no clicking or interactivity with elements on the page other than the act of scrolling.

Do I do that with an event, content tracking, or goal workaround?

edit:
has anyone used piwik event tracking by firing the tracking event with something like that described at?

Hi there,

I’m looking to know if a user scrolled past a particular section of a longer page.

You can use Event tracking and manually track the event, or you can use Content Tracking: Content Tracking - Analytics Platform - Matomo which is our powerful feature to do this, and much more :slight_smile: but you need to have HTML blocks to track (eg. DIV)

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.

Comes with 100% data ownership, full control over your data, and no limitations.
