Popularity Nudge: Visitors

A Popularity Nudge shows recent page views. By showing that your pages are being looked at by others, you trigger a powerful Social Proof effect.

You can show the most recent visitor only, or all recent visitors.

What information does the Popularity Nudge show?

To display recent page views, Nudgify collects live data from your website. It captures who visited which page, when.

Single visitors

Who: You decide how you wish to refer to the visitor, for example “A person”, “A trend setter” or “A happy traveller”. This allows you to tailor your the Nudge to your website.

The Nudge also shows the location of the visitor. In Nudge Settings, in the message tab, you can choose to show the city and country, the country only, or hide the location of your visitors altogether.

Which page: The Nudge displays visitors on the page you show the Nudge on.

When: In the top right corner, the Nudge shows how long ago the page was visited. You can decide to hide visits older than e.g. 24 hours.

All visitors

Who: You decide how you wish to refer to visitors, for example “people”, “trend setters” or “happy travellers”. This allows you to tailor your the Nudge to your website.

Which page: The Nudge displays visitors on the page you show the Nudge on.

When: the Nudge shows the time frame within which the page was visited. You can choose to hide visits older than e.g. 12 hours. The Nudge will show the most visitors within the time frame you selected.

For example, you select that you want to hide visits older than 12 hours. 25 people visited your page in the last 6 hours, but 47 visitors in the last 10 hours. Between 10 and 12 hours ago, no one visited your page. In this case, we will show the maximum amount of visitors, 47, in the smallest time frame, 10 hours. The Nudge will say ’47 people viewed this page in the last 10 hours’.

Minimum and maximum: You can choose the minimum and maximum of visitors that are required for the Nudge to show. Do you not want to show the Nudge if you have less than 5 visitors? Set the minimum to 5. This means that when less than 5 people visited the page in the time frame you chose (e.g. 24 hours), the Nudge will not show.

What if my Popularity Nudge doesn’t show?

The Popularity Nudge for single visitors shows as long as someone has visited the page within the time frame you set. The Popularity Nudge for all visitors shows when a minimum of 2 visitors have viewed the page within the time frame you set.

Adjust your time frame

If the Popularity Nudge does not show, it might be that your pages don’t have enough visitors within the time frame you set. Adjust your time frame and see if the Nudge shows.

Adjust your minimum

For the Popularity Nudge for all visitors, the minimum number of visitors is set to 2 by default. You can set this minimum to be higher than 2 when configuring the Nudge. When less people than this minimum visit your page in the time frame you chose, the Nudge won’t show. Adjust your minimum and see if the Nudge shows.

Make sure your Pixel is installed

We use your Nudgify Pixel to detect visitors on you pages. To show the Popularity Nudge, you need to make sure the Pixel is installed on the pages of your site.

Wait until you have more visitors

Nudgify does not collect historical data to display the Popularity Nudge. Data collection starts from the moment you install Nudgify. This means that the Nudge might not show up at first, if you haven’t had enough new visitors since you added the Pixel to your site.
