    • Are Heat Maps Accurate?

      New Eye Tracking Tool to Boost Conversion Rates

      heat-mapsHeat maps, click maps and eye-tracking simulators have been an essential part of conversion rate optimisation for awhile, but how accurate are they?

      Recently I came across a new service, called EyeQuant, which claims to be far more accurate than many of the other heat mapping  services.

      Proper eye tracking technology is expensive and out of reach of most businesses, so to fill the gap a range of web based heat mapping servies have sprung up.

      Most are based on an algorithm that supposedly mimics human eye behaviour, but according to EyeQuant, this is actually unsuitable for use on ads or websites as it performs no better than chance.

      EyeQuant claims that its new service is far more accurate and gets 90% accuracy at less than 1% of the cost and time for a professional eye tracking experiment.
