Website Monitoring: How to Keep Track of Your Site’s Performance

If you’ve ever visited a website that’s been down for hours, you know how frustrating it can be. But the feeling of being unable to visit your website is worse when you don’t know why it went down and even worse still if the problem is due to something simple like a broken link on page A that links to page B and page B links back to page A. In this post, I’ll outline some strategies for website monitoring your site’s performance so that you can catch problems before they become bigger issues.

Record and evaluate user sessions.

You can record user sessions by using a third-party tool, such as Google Analytics. This will allow you to see how many people visit your site each day and how long they spend on it. You can also see which pages are being viewed most frequently, which could help determine what content needs more attention or improvement.

By recording user sessions and evaluating them regularly, you can improve the way that your website is perceived by visitors and make sure that it continues to perform well in terms of traffic & conversion rates.

Identify and track problem pages.

The first step to understanding how your site is performing is to identify the problem page. There are several ways to accomplish this, but one that consistently delivers positive results is the use of heatmaps. Heatmaps track where users click on the page and show you where they spend most of their time on your site. This helps you determine which pages need more attention than others and which areas aren’t being used as much as they should be.

Another useful tool that allows you to track performance across multiple websites at once is session recording software like Google Analytics (GA). Session recordings allow users who leave without visiting any other pages during their visit to still be tracked so long as there was some interaction with an element on those pages before leaving this includes scrolling down through content (heatmaps), filling out forms (click map), clicking links sent via email campaigns, etc.

Create downtime alerts in your system.

When your website goes down, you can set up alerts to let you know. If you’re concerned about losing customers or making money because of downtime, this is helpful.

Alerts are sent via email, so there’s no need to worry about missing them if someone else has access to your account and has set them up for you as well. You can also customize the messages that appear in these emails for example, if someone tried logging into their account but couldn’t get past the login page, they might receive an alert saying “Your password was incorrect” instead of just “You have not been logged in.”

Run split tests and optimize conversions.

Split testing is a method of website monitoring that helps you optimize your website. Split testing can help you increase conversions, which will result in more leads and purchases. Split testing involves changing the way your site looks and works while keeping other aspects of it (like text content) constant. This makes it easy for visitors to switch between different versions of websites with ease, giving them an idea of what each one will feel like before they actually visit them.

Visitor recording is a method of website monitoring that gives you insight into what users actually do on your website.

You can find out what pages people are visiting and how long they stay on them, which will help you optimize your marketing efforts. Visitor recording also helps in determining if visitors are finding what they need or if there are any issues with the site’s design or functionality.

Using visitor recording to monitor your website can help you find out what’s going wrong and stop it before it gets worse.

Visitor recording is a method of website monitoring that gives you insight into what users actually do on your website. It can assist you in identifying the issue and resolving it before it worsens. You can use visitor recording to identify and track problem pages, which will allow you to improve the user experience for all visitors.

Visitor recordings show how many users visit each page, how long they stay there (and how long they spend on each page), whether or not the page has been viewed by any other person besides yourself in the last 24 hours (if so, who? Why does this person have access?), etc allowing for easy comparison between different visitors’ experiences with different parts of your site’s functionality.


We hope this post has given you a better understanding of the benefits of visitor recording for website monitoring. It’s an essential tool for any business owner or webmaster, whether they’re trying to optimize conversions, track down issues with their content, or identify new ways of improving users’ experiences on their site. We’ll be covering more of the ins and outs of visitor recording in our next post so stay tuned!
