What is a Heat Map?

Un heat map or "heatmaps" is an interactive map that shows the quantity and location exact traffic on your website. The map is represented by warm, cool, or neutral colors. They represent the amount of idle clicks, sweet spots, most visited content, and ignored content. Therefore, they are visual maps that allow us to see where our users are, the areas they are interested in and the content they find less interesting.

The areas that have warmer colors They are the places that users focus more or have more interest, they are the source of information that interests you the most when measuring factors such as the interaction, attention and interest in the content.

How to interpret a heat map

The interpretation of a heat map It's pretty straightforward: the warmer the color on a map, the more clicks that particular point will receive. Therefore, if there are areas of the web page with very warm colors, it means that there are many users clicking there. This means that it is an interesting or relevant area for our users. On the contrary, the colder colors mean that there are fewer clicks and therefore it is a point of the web where we can improve.

It is important to keep in mind that a heat map only shows us the location and the number of clicks, but doesn't tell us why users are clicking on those areas. To know the reasons behind these behaviors it is necessary to perform a deep analysis.
