Bing has launched a web analytics tool called "Clarity which is devised to provide webmasters with the ability to visualise user behaviour at scale so that data driven decisions can be taken to improve, optimise conversion, visitor engagement and retention.

It'll also help detect malware.

Note "Clarity is compatible with the most common two and three letter top level domains (such as .com, .edu, .au, .uk, etc); we currently working on increasing the compatibility to other general top level domains. Please check back soon if you are looking to use Clarity for a GTLD.**"



To use Clarity Developers should sign up here https://www.clarity.ms/

You already know why, but if you do, you'll miss out on all the fun!

You can ignore it if you wish, but, if it helps, i'm all for it.

Let's have a review once it's been tried.

I wonder how many services are adding that to their terms?

I know its a joke, but EU laws like GDPR will be initially retained in full. I wonder whether we should be thinking about campaigning to have laws which are problematic for us. A GDPR exemption for small business for example?

... understand their pain points? Really?

If that's the intended purpose of this new toy from Microsoft, then it should help to reduce or totally eliminate things like *play onload and modals forever.

... and as far as mobile use is concerned, a great deal of the apps floating around out there are *malware, so we should see a reduction in apps over a period of time.

I think that at the end of the day, publishers aren't going to care if Clarity calls them out on their inexperience or not. They're just going to keep doing whatever it is they do, end user experience be damned.

I use Hotjar and I LOVE the screen recorder function.
It always helps me find problems in a page.
If you haven't tried it, you don't know what you're missing.

If this function could scale, without me having to watch all recordings, it would be awesome.
I'm in the EU, applied nevertheless, doubt they'll approve it but, hey, if they do, I'll try it.

"beta product"

"once we start instrumenting your site" - Do I really want to INSTRUMENT my site?

"By adding some simple JavaScript to your page, get the ability to replay page views, view sessions and observe interactions.
"Page" above should read "HUNDREDS OF PAGES" - Hello?

No more bleeding betas for me.
"Show me the money" - Which I see as "Show me the GREAT REVIEWS.", before I give it HOURS of my time. I think we'll be waiting awhile.

It sounds interesting.

Wouldn't mind a play with it.

Am EU though so I suppose I may have to wait.

The day this thread was created I went in and added a project for the largest site I manage... just to see what it had.

As of writing this post... "Pending Approval" is still the status, and has been since I applied.

Has anyone had a project approved? How long did it take? Why are they offering the service if it takes more than 4 weeks to approve a project?
