I use statcounter and also have all the stats from my server but when I heard about Crazy Egg and how their service gives you a graphical representation of your hits, I thought I might like to give it a try. I found out about this from Darren over at ProBlogger.
I try all sorts of things like this, often to little effect. I have to say, I have learned a lot by seeing the hits laid over the page.
It will tell you if your ads are being hit, if people are clicking deeper into your site, if people are clicking your photos (I am guessing because they expect them to be flickr-linked OR to right-click to download, something you can not tell with this software).
Here are a few screenshots.
All you need to be able to do is access your template and put the code you will get once you sign up for the free trial.
Let me know if you use this and if you have found anything earth shattering!
