Why Do Marketers Use the Scroll Map?
The Scroll Map is widely used by online marketers to improve the performance of their website. This tool allows them to identify and select the best web page length; and at the same time, helps them to optimally place information on the site and strategically prioritize content.

How to Use Scroll Maps?
The behavior of site visitors on the scroll map is defined by colors. Generally, colors like red, yellow or white indicate the most viewed sections of the site while colors like dark blue, black or teal mean that these areas had lesser views or were hardly seen by the visitors.
