That'd only work for people who read with their mouse wouldn't it? I'd be interested to try anyway. Does it track muse movement or something?

Also, it helps to demonstrate visually where people are looking. If, for instance you have 3 links to one page, you could find out hich links recieved the highest CTR or click-through rate. So far, I haven't found it to be very effective on my blog, since most of my visitors enter my site without seeing my homepage (the only page I have CrazyEgg monitoring) and of those visitors, you need a lot of 'Clicks' to see a proper trend. No doubt, that sites with fewer links will yield a more useful result but beggars can't be choosers. Nevertheless, you can always give it a go Ed. It's free to use as long as you don't need to measure more than 5000 visitors per month. At the moment though, I'm going to be lucky to hit half that!

From what I can tell it tells you which links were clicked. I've been using a free servcie called statcounter for a few years now and it can show me stats of what was clicked, what keywords were used to google me etc. Can it track a mouse before a click?
