leave a comment »

confettiOn Occam’s Razor this week Avinash talked about some of his favorite supplemental analytic tools and covered Confetti by Crazy Egg. I’ve actually seen this tool before and now have a project where an overlay like this would be really helpful in understanding user behavior.

I actually spoke with the people at Crazy Egg and they say a new version is coming out next month whweb analytics an hour a dayich will be their first serious update in about 3 years. In its present form Confetti track x,y coordinates and then uses different colors to show referring segments. I’m a big fan of data visualization tools and it’s capabilities exceed typical analytics capabilities. The best part is that Confetti starts at $9 per month for up to 10 pages.
