SimpleHeatmaps is a behavioral analytics platform that generates heatmaps based on how people are interacting with your website. By learning how to read these heatmaps you can glean insights on your users' behavior and potential issues with the UI/UX of your product. Moreover, use SimpleHeatmaps powerful data management to see how these heatmaps are changing over time.
SimpleHeatmaps runs on most modern web browsers. We recommend the most recent versions of the following browsers:
When you first create your SimpleHeatmaps account you'll be presented with a wizard that's designed to help you get set up quickly. Once you see it, click "Get Started" to go to step 1.
The first step of the wizard asks you for the domain URL of the website you want to configure for use with SimpleHeatmaps. While the system tries to handle, clean, and process any format for the URL, we recommend that you enter in the domain URL with the leading "http://" or "https://" prefix. Any path will be automatically removed.
If your website requires SSL (for example, if you redirect http:// to https://) please enable the relevant option on this step titled "Website requires ssl (https)" so that the SimpleHeatmaps platform can reach and take screenshots of your website.
By default, whenever new heatmaps are generated and data has been processed, we'll send out an email (at most once a day) to let you know. If you'd prefer to not get these emails, you can disable them here, or later under website settings.
Heatmaps expose the behavioral data collected on your website visually. By learning to read heatmaps correctly you can glean insights into how users are (or aren't) expecting to use your website. By tracking how heatmaps change along with design changes on your website, you can use data to determine if your efforts are making a positive or negative impact to the user experience.
