Adding HeatMaps to your website

ClickHeat is a wonderful PHP software that lets you add Heatmaps for your webpages. Heatmaps are visual representation of clicks on a HTML page, showing hot and cold click zones. It can be useful to see at a glance which webpage areas are getting the most clicks as this areas get redder in color while the areas receiving less clicks are white. The software has many options to tweak, and the heatmaps can be added on a per page basis.

A sample heatmap image is shown below. You can also use the clickheat class in your own PHP applications. The software doesn’t require any database, only GD graphics library must be enabled on the server, which in most cases already is.

You can view a heatmap for the index page for this site here. I’ve presently only added click log for the index page, so try clicking on the index page links to update the heatmap.

If you don’t see any changes in the heatmap, click on the “log my clicks” link in the right corner or try logging out and then logging in again.
