The data collection graph allows you to see how much traffic your site receives on a daily basis to help you determine the best Hotjar data collection plan for your site.
The graph visualizes your site's traffic for the past 7 days, excluding the current day, with each bar representing one day. The daily pageviews reported are an estimation. Sites with very low traffic, such as less than 500 daily pageviews, may experience inaccuracies.
Exceeding your plan's data collection rate
If your site's daily traffic exceeds the data collection rate of the Hotjar plan it is on, data collected will be based on sampled traffic.
Each daily bar can have up to 2 colors:
- Blue: Indicates the traffic Hotjar is tracking based on a selected data collection plan. The default selected plan is your site's current plan.
- Grey: Indicates the traffic Hotjar is not tracking.
This graph is accessible from two places throughout the Hotjar Interface:
- Bottom-left corner (Sidebar): Clicking on the Learn More link will open a detailed report. Selecting different plans allows you to identify the best data collection plan for the site, based on its traffic.
- Plans & Billing page: This page is only accessible to account owners, with data collection stats shown underneath each site. Selecting different plans allows the account owner to identify the best data collection plan for the site, based on its traffic.
Data collection graphs are not available for accounts on Billing Version 1
We do not measure site traffic for accounts on Billing Version 1 and as a result, we are unable to visualize this information for these accounts.
