WHAT IS HEAT MAPPING?

Heat mapping is a data visualization tool used by digital marketers to determine the percentages of traffic that each part of a webpage receives. Data used for heat maps is generally collected through eyetracking, mousetracking, or clicktracking. 

Heat mapping enables businesses to see which parts of their webpage receive the most traffic. They then analyze this information and make decisions about how to best design and format their webpages.

HOW HEAT MAPPING WORKS

Heat mapping creates a visual of website traffic by showing businesses how customers interact with their webpage. There are multiple types of heat maps, though a few are used more commonly than others: scroll maps, hover maps, click mapping, and attention mapping.

Heat mapping utilizes a cool-to-warm color spectrum (e.g, red areas receive the most traffic while, blue indicates less traffic) to give a visual representation of a site’s traffic.

WHY YOU SHOULD UTILIZE HEAT MAPS

Heat maps give businesses valuable information by answering many important questions. Heat mapping tells companies where the most crucial content on a page should be located. This information gives companies direction in determining what actions they should take in formatting their site in order to make the most of the customer’s visit and grants companies the greatest chance of reaching their conversion goals.
