has been around for a while, but I’ve only just got around to trying
it. I had trouble taking anything with such a silly name seriously, to
my own chagrin.
Crazy Egg is a stats package
unlike any other you’ve used. It offers a visual overview of your site
activity, showing (amongst other things) the number of clicks per link
on a page.
This is incredibly useful. It allows you to immediately grasp what
your readers are doing. Are they clicking where you want? Are they
reading your whole page? Is one graphic over powering another? Is your site doing what it’s supposed to do? The site itself says
What do the results tell me?
Where your visitors are clicking speaks for itself.
Here are just a few things you can discover:
- Find the right spot for your ads
- Find the right layout for a page
- Find the right place to put everything
Crazy Egg’s admin interface is
amongst the best in the business. It’s intuitive, powerful, and easy on
the eyes. The actual software making the thing run is extremely
very little refreshing of the web page you’re looking at. This gives the
site more of a desktop application feel. Very slick.
Cost for the service ranges from $0 to $99/mo, depending on volume.
Currently, I’m playing with the free account, but can see upgrading in
the near future to access some of the more advanced features. If you’re
interested in making sure your site is doing what you want it to do, I
highly recommend checking Crazy Egg out. Now, if only they’d do something about that name…
