Find how far visitors scroll down your website in easy steps

Why should we concern?

You might have come across the term above the fold.This term is heavily used in advertising industry.Advertising networks recommend you to place ad code above the fold for better results.Webmasters also tend to place important content above the fold only.
The reason behind above the fold hype is that visitors are less likely to scroll down a webpage.So content visible without scrolling down a website is said to be above the fold.So for better ad placement and content placement it is good to know how far visitors scroll down your website.

This information can be used for ad placement,social widget placement and other important content placement (like Subscription form,Follow me buttons and interesting content from your website).
