CrazyEgg Mouse Tracking on Iframes


Two weeks ago, I started tracking clicks on our site. Currently, it only it only has Python for the scripting language and this is the main page where visitors land. (There’s an “All Fiddles” page I’m keeping secret because no one has saved anything yet). The confetti report show s all clicks as dots on the page.

 I kept expecting people to be clicking on that Introduction example’s output, which emulates a Python console and shows many features of the language implemented. But it turns out CrazyEgg only tracks specific ad-based iframes.

I did learn the lesson that people usually focus their attention on the top left of that page layout pretty soon after I started using it. Consequently, I added a link to the documentation for the logo and put my best example at the top of the list.
