Quick, Easy and No Development Required

Get started with Hotjar without requiring a web developer to add the Hotjar tracking code to your WordPress site. All you need to do is install the Hotjar WordPress plugin, copy over your site id from the Hotjar admin and start setting up your Heatmaps, Recordings, Feedback, and all other Hotjar tools for your site. 

Hotjar's Own Supported Plugin

Although there were a number of similar plugins already available for WordPress, none of them were supported by us. We decided to build our own official plugin, which we could readily support, to provide the most reliable experience to our users.
