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. 24 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.

When does the Popularity Nudge 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 appears when a minimum of 2 visitors have viewed the page within the time frame you set. You can set this minimum to be higher when configuring the Nudge. Beware that when less people than the minimum you set visit your page in the time frame you chose, the Nudge won’t show.

When the Nudge does not show

Note that 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 do not have enough recent product views since you installed the app.

If the Popularity Nudge for all visitors does not show up, check the minimum and time frame you set. When the amount of visitors within the set time frame is less than the minimum you chose, the Nudge won’t show.
