How To Install "HotJar" Feedback Widget In Blogger


Most of blogger think why should I add a feedback widget in my blog, it is not of any use, it will slow down my site, I don't need it because i just own a blog not a big website so I don't need to get feedback of my visitors etc. But its absolutely wrong. Feedback widget is very important whether you own just a blog or a big website. Its because it will tell you about your blog's content, design and how users are experiencing your blog and how can you improve your blog's content and design if something is not liked by visitors.
Because your blog is for your visitors and they spend their time on your blog and visit your blog, its your responsibility to provide them such a good content and design that they never get any difficult and visit your blog again and again and also share it with others. But as I mentioned people will like your blog only when you improve your content, improve your design, improve user experience. And to improve your blog you need to know what are those things that are affecting your site and the only way to know that is to talk to your visitors because they know better than you about how they want the content to be and how the design should be.

So feedback widget is very very important to get feedback from your visitors and improve your site. So in this post I am going to show you how to install "HotJar" feedback widgets in blogger.
