Hotjar - affordable all-in-one feedback and analytics

I found this Hotjar service very interesting. It has a free plan, and these features:

  • Heatmaps
  • Recordings
  • Conversion funnels
  • Form analysis
  • Feedback polls
  • Surveys
  • Recruit user testers

Even if you won’t use it I find this article, Action Plan, very useful to understand what brings traffic to your app, and what the barriers to make people in or drive people out.

Hotjar has a integration with Optimizely, and as I know no API.


@csfalcao were you able to get this to work on one of your apps? I ctrl-c/v’d the text provided by Hotjar into the header scripts/metatags section on Bubble with no luck.

It took some hours but it worked.

it’s a javascript that is provided by HotJar. How did you guys end up adding it to bubble? @strang22 @csfalcao

In the editor, navigate to the settings tab and the SEO & Metatags tab within that. Paste the HJ script into the header section.


worked like a charm. Thanks @strang22


Can you make it so this does not fire on DEV?


It seems HotJar could get pricey if look at the non-personal plans. Has anyone tried another heat map alternative software which works well with bubble ?

Full Story works fine, but there’s a big gap between the free tier and the start of the paid tiers. These software packages are expensive any way you slice it!

Do you guys know if this can also track groups? I have an mobile app with one “index page” and groups that are shown off certain actions to make it feel more like a native app.

I curious how to implement manual triggering of page changes to overcome the SPA problem of tracking page change. Hotjar have said its simple but not sure at which level I need to insert this;

Much appreciated.
