Yes, My websites currently do this.

Should I get someone to create this (my php is rather basic) or is there a system you'd recommend that I can get (not too expensive).

Well, you can custom do it...
There are lots of free scripts out there. Try Freshmeat.net and all those other sites like that.

Dpeper and Lisa - could you give a little more detail on exactly how you are using those ingredients? I am looking to cook up something similar myself.

Sounds like Dpeper has something good for you.
Well, I give the user an ID number. I then store that in a cookie for 24 hours. I then take the first referer and story it in a database. Then start logging each page that the user looks at. Easy to assemble a trace of what they did by the datastamp of each click.
Then I have an admin webpage that shows users and allows me to see the path each user took. I can also see how many people take each path. You will notice lots of people go two steps in then vanish. You want to really watch them and see if they go to the order page then back out to product pages. Shows they have questions or they are deciding.

Thankyou Lisa - thats just the kind of answer I was hoping for (I didn't know if everyone is doing this or if it is next to impossible)
Hey Dpeper - getting excited about your next post :) don't keep us in suspense too long.
