What Is Microsoft Clarity?
Microsoft has launched Microsoft Clarity, a free-to-use analytics product for webmasters that shows you how people are using your website. This tool can help you capture more data about your website visitors. It can also be integrated with Google Analytics. To succeed in SEO you need to be using multiple tools to capture and analyze the data from your website. The goal is to consistently improve your customer’s journey through your marketing and sales funnel.
Clarity provides three key features:
· Session recordings: Replay user interactions to find out where people are getting stuck.
