beware of many ajax calls and database writes
By , for WP 3.9.1

I was just called in to troubleshoot a site that was consistently crashing a client's web server. It turns out this plugin was triggering an ajax call every 2 seconds for each connected client. Because each call was writing to the database, no caching was happening and each call was taking 400 - 500ms to process. On the client's VPS, more than 20 or so simultaneous visitors was enough to take the server down (4GB RAM VPS).

I can only imagine the havoc this would wreak on a site with medium to high traffic!

So if you're thinking of using this plugin, and you expect more than very light traffic, I would highly advise looking at the paid option to move the callbacks to a hosted service, or have a look at other hosted services that provide similar functionality.

Excelente utilidad
By , for WP 3.9

Funciona perfectamente... me encantan los reportes incluso con el tamaño de la pantalla.

Aunque lo acabo de instalar, solo necesito saber cómo resetear los clicks de una URL o de todo el sitio.

La configuración es excelente, muy configurable.

Gracias!!

Pure Awesomeness

Update: This plugin is now SUPER. It has gone a long way since my initial review. Undoubtedly deserves a 5-star rating!

Would be even better if it had some sort of UI in the backend to view the heatmap instead of just modifying the URL. But overall it is fantastic and requires no messing with configurations etc.
