Detailed in-page tracking tools

 8:36 am on Jul 19, 2014 (gmt 0)

Are there any detailed in-page tracking tools out there?

I have had a look at google analytics one and it's very basic; from my experience it can't tell you the difference between two links on the same page that go to the same place.

For example, if you have a link to "Services" at the top and one in the footer, both will display the same %.

The kind of data I'm looking for is stuff like this... based on the amount of people that visit the page and don't bounce:

- How many people clicked what link and the ability to decipher between the same link in different places
- Where people scrolled to on the page
- Did people open dropdown lists at all (whether or not they clicked isn't important)
- How many slides did people view from the main page slider?
- If we have a tabbed section, how many people clicked on the other tabs?

Stuff like that. Anything like that around?

Analytics has some major flaws, but you can do most of what you want using the "event" capabilities.
Soon I'll probably post a "fix" for Analytics huge "time on page" short coming for "bounced" pages.
