Here is a very simple way ho to create a heat map with jQuery. The idea is to track the clicks of a user and then display the click pattern with semi-transparent dots on an overlay. You can try out the demo by first clicking around on the page and then clicking “Analyze”. Since the dots are semi-transparent, spots that have been clicked on more often, will appear slightly darker. Click on the overlay to make it invisible again and continue with the “recording”.

    Tnx

    Well it exist in GA, as al link map, but not the exact place where a person clicks. for example if you have a big header image, you can see on wich place a person clicks.

    Can anyone provide an example of how to write the heat map info to disk, so you can capture multiple users data rather than just the single current user session?

    You have an interesting plug-in here. Thanks for this.

    Is there a way to save the clicks so the website owner could see what areas of his site are getting clicked on?

    You might have bits that aren’t clickable, but people always click on them, so it’d be great to know what people are doing.

    This is really interessting… despite the fact that GA uses an OverlayMap, this solution point the exact click out. It would be interessting to save the data to MySQL… and renerate an own analytics Tool ;-)
