The Best Website Traffic Tracker — SpyVisit!

 

UPDATE: IT SEEMS LIKE SPYVISIT HAS GONE OUT OF BUSINESS.

As a website owner, you probably have been using Google Analytics to track your website traffic. Analyzing your traffic is important for best website traffic trackerincreasing conversions, and Google Analytics offers amazing stats, such as how many visitors your website and each page had, where they came from, how long they stayed on your site, and other such useful data. However, it is far from being the best website traffic tracker.

(Disclaimer note: If you buy anything from, through, or on this website, I will receive a commission.)

When Google Analytics Fails

The truth is that Google Analytics does not provide a lot of data that is extremely important for accurate analysis and increasing conversions. Let me give some examples:

  • You may have a number of Amazon or eBay products shown on your sidebar. Your affiliate account may tell you how many clicks you have received, but you have no way of knowing which product is attracting the most attention.
  • In the same vein, you may have a number of affiliate links on one page. Your affiliate account may tell you the number of clicks and signups you have received, but do you know which links were most clicked on? Who knows, maybe some links weren’t clicked on at all? Are the links at the top of the page bringing in conversions or the links on the bottom of the page? You have no way of knowing.
  • You may have a number of items in a top or side menu bar. Which ones are being clicked on? Are people using your drop down menu at all? How will you know?
  • With Google Analytics, you can see which pages are the most popular. But only part of the traffic will come directly from Google. Can you tell where from your own site people are coming from? Are they also coming from another post that links to that popular page? Are they coming from a menu item? Are they coming from a page where you list your recommended products? What method is effective and what is working?
  • With Google Analytics, you can tell whether a page is popular or not. But which part of the page is popular? That you can’t tell. Do you need to spice up the top of the page? Does the bottom need improvement? What part of your text interests people the most?
  • With Google Analytics, you can only get aggregated and general data. You can not track individual visitors. You can not track which pictures, links, menu items, pages, etc attracted and were of interest to individual visitors. You can not see your visitor entering your site, clicking on your menu, visiting another page, and everything else they do until they click on an affiliate link.

The Solution is Clear — SpyVisit!

I recently was informed of a new analytics tool that promises to solve the above problems. And when I first tried it out, I was spy website trafficblown away by what it can do. It’s called SpyVisit and is currently available at just $12 a month with a $1 trial.

Here are just some of the features it offers:

  • Heat Maps. The first type of heat map shows where on each page people clicked on the most.
  • The second type of heat map shows where people looked at the most, based on where their mouse pointer lay.
  • The third type of heat map shows where people scrolled to the most. Again, these maps are available for every page separately and can be filtered based on day/week/month/custom etc.
  • Most popular pages with pie charts.
  • The last feature I want to mention is what really blew me away. You are given a list of each and every user session on your site, along with the traffic source. You can then play a video of that user’s entire session on your site. The video is a moving screenshot of your site and includes mouse movements and where that visitor clicked. It’s really incredible, and it allows you to see what exactly each individual visitor was doing on your website and what interests your visitors on each page.

Remember that all this is in addition to Google Analytics. The two programs do not interfere with each other.

It is extremely easy to set up your site and start tracking your visitors. You will just be given a code and all you have to do is paste it in the header of your site. If you have a WordPress site, you can download an “Insert Header and Footer” plugin (there are a few of these) and just paste the code into the box the plugin gives you.

    Sky visit looks like a great tool. It is certainly something i will keep in mind in the near future, as my website is still in the process of being completed and I still have a lot to learn. Other info on your site has also helped me. Thanks for taking the time to put this all together

    Very interesting review of Spy Visit, for those of us that have used google analytics, we know that it is great for a free service, but it is not as comprehensive in its scope as we would like. I am interested in finding a paid service that provides a more accurate run down of conversions and visitor behavior. It sounds like spy visit might be a good fit for me. The price point looks pretty good too. Do you re-market according to the data that spy visit provides? Does the program also provide tips on how to utilize the data on visitor behaviour to increase conversions? Thanks in advance for your feedback

      Hi Cole,

      Remarketing is offsite marketing, such as through email campaigns or targeted Facebook ads, that usually occurs after your visitors have left your site. Spy Visit helps you optimize your site for conversions based on sophisticated data of what your visitors are doing on your site.

      I hope to do an article on tips pertaining to Spy Visit and increasing conversions. Thanks for the idea! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hm, that sounds very interesting. I might have to try it out. It almost is a little creepy that you can see a replay of the actions on your pages, but also pretty cool. I will try out the trial at least and see how it is. Thanks for this article.

    Hi this is very interesting I might just give it a go!
    The main thing that frustrates me about google analytics is they way it takes a few days to catch up with me and doesn’t seem to show immediate results.
    Is spyvisit any quicker than google at showing results?
    Thanks for bringing this to my attention anyway. I will check it out!
    Regards, Kris

    What a great, useful website! I wonder all the time how and why certain sites are coming up and how many people actually favor them and click on them. This will totally help me determine whether my competition is coming up because they are truly a popular site, or if they’ve just seized upon some low hanging fruit of rare keywords that just happened to cause them to pop up… that’s what I suspect much of the time, but the fact that they are coming up on top can mislead me to think the inclusions in their site are actually popular.
    Thanks for providing this.

      Hi Alex,

      Unfortunately, there is no way of seeing what your visitors were doing BEFORE they came to your site. However, you CAN see whatever they were doing ON your site, and where they came from and what keyword they used. You can’t see what they were doing on Google.

      With that being said, the only way a site becomes popular, in most cases, is because it used good keywords. A keyword tool could help you figure out your competition.

    This Spy Visit tool may be what I’m looking for.
    While I use Google Analytics and benefit from it, as you mentioned, it doesn’t get very in-depth with what the visitors to my site are actually doing. My site is only 3 months old but I’m at the point where I need to make a few minor changes on some pages that are getting hits but no conversions. I need to know what exactly my traffic is doing so I know what changes to make. My visitors viewing habits aren’t always apparent to me using Analytics so clearly I need something else. After reading your review, I think Spy Visit will help me with that.
