Clear GIFs (also referred to as web beacons) are used in combination with cookies in order to give website operators a better understanding of how visitors interact with the website. A clear GIF is typically a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a website. The use of a clear GIF allows the website to measure the actions of the visitor opening the page that contains the clear GIF. Adobe SiteCatalyst measures visitor behavior using clear GIFs in order to improve the user experience and make it easier to manage web content.
