Advanced user path tracking

User tracking with Indigeo, a system to capture user interactions on the web and compare them with optimal paths. I chatted to James about this about a year ago, and now it’s kinda finished.

It gives the visitor a task, and then tracks how they go through the site, including which link they click and how long they spend on a page.

You can then do funky stuff like analyze what your users did versus an optimal path, or play back how they went trhough the site.

“The system requires just a standard web browser – no plugins, no java, no javascript. All interaction is tracked on the server using a proxy application which detects incoming web requests and returns a page where all hyperlinks have an ID attached to them. This is transparent to the visitor.”

James is looking for feedback, so head over and send him some!
