Crazy Egg has become an invaluable tool for analyzing user behavior and making informed design decisions. Users across various departments, including marketing, design, and front-end development, have relied on Crazy Egg to gather insights for high-level decisions on websites and landing pages. The platform's heatmapping capabilities provide quantitative data on user engagement, allowing teams to optimize pages and improve the overall user experience. Crazy Egg's unique confetti tool has been particularly praised for its ability to identify popular and unpopular items on websites, highlighting areas where users expect clickable elements. Additionally, Crazy Egg's integration with Google Analytics enables users to gain a more complete picture of user behavior, further enhancing their understanding of website performance. With its comprehensive insights into user interactions and intuitive visualizations, Crazy Egg has proven to be an indispensable resource for businesses seeking to enhance conversions and improve overall website effectiveness.

Valuable Click Mapping Feature: Many users have found Crazy Egg's click mapping feature to be highly valuable, allowing them to see exactly where visitors are clicking on their website. This information has helped them identify popular links and buttons, as well as areas of the page that were mistakenly believed to be clickable. The insights gained from this feature have enabled users to make informed decisions about their website's layout and design.

Helpful Scroll Mapping Feature: Users have praised Crazy Egg's scroll mapping feature for providing insights into how far users are scrolling down the page. This information has been helpful in understanding user behavior and making informed decisions about page layout and content placement. By using this feature, users have been able to optimize their websites and improve user engagement.

Powerful Segmentation Capabilities: Crazy Egg's segmentation capabilities have received high praise from many users. Being able to differentiate click patterns based on visitor properties such as technology, new or returning visitors, and other factors has allowed users to gain deeper insights into user behavior and tailor their websites accordingly. These powerful segmentation capabilities have helped optimize websites for different segments of the audience.

Confusing Interface: Some users have found the interface of Crazy Egg to be confusing, particularly when dealing with a large number of snapshots. They have expressed that it takes time to locate specific snapshots among those that are running or stopped.

Limited Heatmap Visualizations: The limited availability of heatmap visualizations in Crazy Egg has been seen as a drawback by users. They feel that having more options for visualizing data would enhance their understanding and analysis capabilities.

Lack of Detailed Reporting: Users have mentioned that the reporting in Crazy Egg is not detailed enough, leaving them without sufficient information to make well-informed decisions. They feel that there is a need for more comprehensive reports to better analyze user behavior and optimize their websites accordingly.

Users of Crazy Egg commonly recommend trying Crazy Egg for valuable insights, especially for e-commerce websites. It is worth giving a try, particularly for novice analysts or medium businesses with a UX team. Crazy Egg is recommended for CTRs, scroll depth, and session replays. Users suggest utilizing Crazy Egg's features and webinars to avoid making assumptions about user behavior and get the most out of the tool.

Users also recommend using Crazy Egg alongside other tools like Google Analytics to gain additional insights and have a more comprehensive understanding of website performance. It is seen as a great tool for heatmaps, recordings, A/B testing, and analyzing clicks using the confetti feature of the heatmap.

Furthermore, users advise signing up for the free trial of Crazy Egg to test its capabilities before making any purchasing decisions. They suggest setting it up for important pages first to maximize its value. For those who can afford it, opting for the full plan provides advantages. However, users caution against being cautious of annual pricing and notifying any changes to the account admin. It is important to be careful with renewals and unsubscribing if not satisfied. Even on a small budget, Crazy Egg is still recommended as a tool for simple heatmaps.

Overall, users find value in trying Crazy Egg, particularly for e-commerce websites. Using it alongside other tools can provide more insights, and taking advantage of the trial version and pricing options available is advised.

Crazy Egg is an important tool for our PPC and SEO campaigns. We use it to engage in CRO opportunities and help clients get a better conversion rate out of their traffic. We use it in paid search for landing page development.
  • Shows hot spots of content
  • Adds extra value to client's campaigns
  • Provides data driven recommendations for CRO
  • The export of the snapshot link is time sensitive and not that easy to present to clients
  • I wish it could be integrated into other dashboards
  • The plans are kind of expensive
I find it best for content placement onsite, CRO campaigns, and landing page development. I use it more than any other CRO or heat mapping software. I am limited to only a certain amount of clients I can use it on and the snapshot constraints and plan make it not suitable for all my roster.
  • Higher converting landing pages
  • More engaging onsite content
  • Extra value to SEO/PPC campaigns
My agency selected Crazy Egg because of the ease of use and the pricing plans. I would like to be able to follow conversion funnels and some of the mobile modules are not as comprehensive. The best part of Crazy Egg is how easy it is to use and train others how to use properly.
Overall I rate Crazy Egg a 8.75 out of 10. Given the overall value and how it easy to use, it is the perfect solution for our agency. Many of my team members use it and a simple training covers core functionality of the platform in just a small amount of time. I would recommend Crazy Egg highly!
Crazy Egg is the best CRO and LPO tool for performance marketers who have a limited budget!

We use it to get Heat and scroll mapping analytics. It is being used to Demand Generation. It helps us assess how customers are interacting with our website pages.
  • Heat mapping
  • Scroll mapping
  • Mobile / Desktop comparisons
  • Easy set up
  • Storing older tests - You must download and store them.
  • Allow easier upgrading to allow for more Snapshots
Crazy Egg is great for smaller to medium size businesses to get heat map data on their websites. The price is very reasonable. It has an easy set-up. It will help them identify and correct website problem areas. Larger companies will need it for snapshots. Ask how many snapshots are needed for your size of company.
  • Helps inform us of how to improve our website. This improves our testing ROI.
  • Gives visual examples to Creative to see what is working and what is not and increases employee understanding.
Crazy Egg is more affordable, but has less features.
Cost. Usefulness. Easy to set-up. Easy to use.

We are currently Running around 90 snapshots. We use Crazy Egg to to measure traffic flow for our customers homepages and main landing pages. We use Crazy Egg reports to discuss ways to the client to improve there website and create A/B testing plans from this data.
  • Using Crazy Egg on homepages help show our clients what visitors are clicking on or NOT clicking on. The detailed Reports that Crazy Egg gives make our jobs easier when convincing a client to change layout or design or content and maybe try an A/B test in the future.
  • We Use Crazy Egg on internal Landing pages as well to see how visitors are reacting to them. Again, The detailed Reports that Crazy Egg gives make our jobs easier when convincing a client to change layout or design or content and maybe try an A/B test in the future.
  • Downloading the reports is very easy today and easy to view with the client. Also the new user interface to set up test is very easy to use.
  • The Overlay feature is very cool but hard to read sometimes and hard to share with clients using screen shots.
It helps prove that content, color or layout can affect a visitors path.
  • We used Crazy Egg to prove that a client's homepage was not working to its potential. We recommended a different layout and did an A/B test using a different software and the test won. We improved clicks by 260% and conversions by 79%
Easy to use. Easy to show reports. Well priced.
I never had any issues with CrazyEgg being down or not working when i need it, and I use it pretty much everyday.

Our information architects and IA's who are employed by our clients use it, to analyze behavior and make page design decisions. Senior managers are another audience when we are trying to discuss or persuade.

Other TrustRadius reviews give excellent summaries of how it can be used as an analytics tool.
  • Shows where people click
  • For some reports, allows segmentation of visitors --- by browser, time of day, referrer, etc.
  • Shows how far down people scroll
  • Has numeric output (the List report) as well as a visual heat map
  • In our testing, it's become clear that CE doesn't capture all clicks. Not sure why some are missed. This may not be a huge problem since you really want to get a few thousand visits before doing any analysis, and since the missed clicks seem to be random, I think the end result will be perfectly all right.
  • I'd like to see just the visitor's FIRST click on a given page, as one of the alternative views.
  • Better and more detailed documentation on how the tracking actually works. There is some confusion about whether the screen coordinates of the click are tracked, or the element being clicked on. The former method seems to be used in the Heat and Confetti views and can get thrown off significantly by different screen aspect ratios and resolutions. The Overlay and List views seem to be based on the element being clicked on, and these views disregard clicks that don't happen in a hot area. A detailed explanation, with implications for different site technologies (responsive, tabs, other dynamic elements) would be really helpful for a minority of customers to whom this is critical.
  • Scroll map is nice but not really useful because it doesn't take into account where the fold is for the individual visitor. At least, I don't think it does (see previous comment about technical documentation). Great additions would be seeing the average fold line for all viewers, AND being able to segment like the Confetti View does. Also, it's not clear whether the scroll is measuring the middle point or the bottom of what's on their screen.
Crazy Egg is perfect for HTML pages with no tabs, expanding elements, or responsive implementation. It is questionable for anything else ... but better than nothing and worth the price.
  • The main positive impact is sped up decisions about whether to change a page's layout. We can throw statistics at decision makers all we want, but one well placed set of Confetti Maps will pretty much bring an end to arguments that would otherwise be based on assumptions. Really has paid off for us this way.
ClickTale is the big competitor. It has more features such as mouse tracking which is super valuable. When we use Crazy Egg, it's for the following reasons: 1) a lot cheaper, 2) the quantitative Overview and List reports, 3) the fact that often what's offered by Crazy Egg is plenty enough.
Information Architects, page designers, and site behavior analysts (web analytics).
Somebody has to be able to put it into the page code.
Testing requires an analytical headset and good communication abilities.
  • Deciding whether to change a page layout.
  • Giving people a clear idea of what happens on a page. MUCH better than statistics or even Google Page View stuff.
  • Figuring out activity on different links that go to the same place, without having to mess with the tracking code for general analytics programs.
  • We never expected clients to want to see heat maps with every monthly analytics report. The Crazy Egg images have contributed to getting our analytics contracts renewed.
  • We're probably going to spotlight a different page every month or so.
We have a lot of clients. Some are appropriate for it, some not. It's 100% likely that we'll have some who can use it at any given point in time.
  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Prior Experience with the Product
I'd do more testing before promising anything to the client. There are some pages and sites (thick pages, pre-rendered pages ... whatever ... not sure) where it just doesn't work at all, or the resulting reports are badly distorted.
  • Implemented in-house
Change management was a small part of the implementation and was well-handled
  • The basic implementation is very easy. Works great with tag management also.
  • Crazy Egg seems to have some excellent advanced implementation possibilities that we have not used yet, so can't evaluate them.
Test, test, test. (I talked about this in two other places in this review)
When I get an answer to my questions, it's very fast and usually very competent. But follow-up questions don't always get answered.
  • Obtaining the tag and putting it into the page.
  • Understanding most of the reports. The exception might be the Scroll Map.
  • Making it work and/or interpreting the reports for a responsive page or a page with tabs, expanding sections, etc.
If it's installed on appropriate pages it's highly intuitive and usable. If the pages aren't appropriate, it's very frustrating and confusing and disappointing for the client.
Its reliability (not scaleability, as the question asks for, sorry) is pretty good but through our testing we know that some clicks do not get recorded. It doesn't bother us a lot because we look at the aggregate of thousands of visits, but we do know it misses things.

As for scaleability, it's about right. You really don't want zillions of clicks per snapshot - the screen just turns to 100% dots and you lose the ability to differentiate different screen areas. We find that 25,000 clicks for a page gives us a really good view.
It's slow to post data, and slow to get a snapshot to finally be active (i.e. not pending). Not intolerable, but would be nice to see data within a couple hours. Often have to wait to the next day.
The main upgrade is more snapshots and it happens instantaneously. Have done this numerous times as clients or internal people get addicted and want more and more pages tracked. Also, once we realized we could have three snapshots for one page (one for each device type) we had to buy a bunch more.
Going from free to paid happened after the first use. No-brainer.
