If you want to further understand how your visitors are actually using your website, what they are clicking and how far they scroll, then we suggest using HotJar. The tool can help you figure out how best to optimize your website and the funnels that direct people to your website.
If you’re selling a product or service, HotJar can help you understand which of your offers are the most popular. If you have a blog, you’ll be able to better understand which blogs your readers find the most interesting and where your visitors are spending the most time reading.

You can also see the time spent on each of your pages, where people are coming from, and so many more metrics.
