Website monitoring tools

When your website is the foundation of your business or a major influence on your brand image, ensuring that visitors enjoy an exceptional user experience is crucial. Even slight delays can result in user frustration, reduced sales, and a lower search ranking.

Website monitoring tools allow you to identify and resolve performance problems like a slow loading image or third-party service outage, helping you find the root cause of performance problems and protect the user experience your developers worked so hard to create.

Ensuring website performance and improving the user experience with website monitoring tools

There are two major types of website monitoring tools used by firms today: synthetic monitoring tools and real user monitoring tools. Representing different yet complementary approaches to front-end website monitoring, both are equally valuable for identifying and resolving website performance and user experience issues.

Synthetic website monitoring tools utilize synthetic transactions—scripts simulating visitor behavior—to periodically verify the functionality, availability, and performance of your website and all affiliated site components in response to specific user actions. Synthetic website monitoring tools enable you to:

Real user or browser monitoring tools use JavaScript instrumentation to track user interactions with your website and collect various user experience metrics from the user’s browser. Browser-based website monitoring tools show you what devices, browsers, and networks your users are on, where they are, and how they arrived on and use your site—so your teams can better understand and optimize your digital platforms for the needs of your specific users. End user performance monitoring is also essential for assessing the impact of site performance on your business, showing you how technical issues affect conversion and bounce rates.

Comprehensive dashboards makes it easy to compare key metrics across all channels.
