FAQ

Do I need an account with heatmap?

Yes, but the sign up is easy as you can use your Google or Facebook account to register

In fact, you need to register on heatmap.com as we are using powerful servers and technologies to offer a product that would slow down your WordPress sites if we tried to integrate it as a standalone plugin.

How much does it cost?

We have a free plan available to you, with limited features. We also have various paid plans depending on your audience and the number of sites you operate.

I don’t see my clicks when I play with my own site

To prevent your clicks from polluting your data, the plugin disables the logging engine when you are logged in as admin on your own site. You can test with a different browser if you don’t believe us 😉

Does the plugin impact the performance of my site?

Not a bit. Our tag is very small and fully asynchronous. Plus, we set up powerful servers and technologies to collect data (we collect hundreds of millions of clicks per month), crunch them and then, display them to you. Finally, the plugin itself stores its configuration using WordPress core engine, so there is no extra load on your WordPress installation.

This was my favorite heatmap tool because it shows the CTR along with the heatmap spots, which is very useful data for me to have... However, recently the reported CTR on my pages has gone way down, with no logical explanation other than a change/bug in this heatmap plugin... I emailed support about this and they did not care to reply, which makes me think twice of ever becoming a paying customer. Speaking of which, their only paid plan is $100... For a freaking heatmap tool. I mean cmon, really? It feels like pricing is completely out of touch with reality. And I would happily pay for it if pricing was reasonable, and the reported CTR was actually accurate, and support cared to actually support their product. I really liked the tool. Would have given it 4 stars previously (5 stars if pricing was reasonable, so I could actually afford a paid plan). But since it's not giving me accurate data anymore now, and no reply from support, that's 2 stars now. Not 1 star because it had good past use for me.

Installed plugin for wordpress, says ACTIVE, clicked Heatmap web pages and popup says No Heatmap Tag Found' added code manually into page headers, still no show. Such a shame, I couldn't get it to work, I had high hopes, why such a basic fault, same issue as Ecabral commented on 5 months ago! Maybe they have abandoned it? tho it says updated 2 weeks ago, confused! Off to try Mouseflow or Smartlook

Works as advertised. Can change which pages to monitor on the fly with a free account.

UPDATE: changing the rating from 1 to 3 stars for now as the plugin is now working after Heatmaps Support helped debug this (thanks!). The issue was that I had 3rd party cookies disabled. The plugin is now collecting data as intended. However, I still don't have enough data, so haven't been able to appreciate how Heatmaps can help... Hopefully, I'll change the rating to ***** really soon! *** This plugin is simply not working for me... I followed all the installation/set up steps, the plugin status is active, but a) the bookmarklet doesn't work, b) the Heatmap.me sidebar won't connect to my Google or FB accounts, and c) pressing Alt+Shift+H doesn't do anything either. It's been 8 months since this plugin was updated, so I wonder if this is no longer supported?

The installation was super easy and it quickly started to collect data. For a free version it is awesome! It also let's you export the data to a CSV file.
