To clear any cloud of confusion, heat maps are tools that website owners or online marketers can use to see accurate figures on what people likes and what people dislikes concerning their pages. To make it short and simple, heat maps are a powerful resource to research on what’s hip or not in a website.
Hiddleston expresses, “Heat maps are absolutely critical to not only optimize your business and your website but also to help you understand your target audience and what drives them, what motivates them, what they like and what they dislike.”
He added, “There are a ton of paid heat map services like Clicky or Visual Website Optimizer which is the one that I like. But there is also an excellent free option if you are just getting started or if you do not have enough traffic to warrant spending 50 to 80 dollars a month.”

The concept of site analytics has been increasingly more popular nowadays. More and more software for web analytics have emerged in the online market to cater the need of collection and analysis of online data to further assess a business progress.
Hiddleston talked about Google analytics as a good venue for having a page analyzed. He mentioned that the analytics part of Google is still a few clicks away. He said, “But it is not that hard and I will provide you with instructions. It will provide you with all the important data like how many clicks your links get, what parts of your website are getting the most actions and activities, and critical data which is displayed in a visual format that is great to look at.”
He also talked about archive.org as a fantastic resource for doing any type of research for competitor analysis. It provides screenshots of billions of websites that a certain business is competing on at different timelines.
Hiddleston wrapped it all up, “Dig into your Google Analytics account, find that free heat map, see what it tells you, see what value it can bring to you and check out archive.org when you have a minute. I already gave you an example of what we used it for at one point and it was tremendously valuable to us. See what use you can think of for it, make note of it, and use it.”
