    Question What is the average time that visitors to your main site spend on a page?

    Google Analytics (and other analytics packages) track a wide variety of statistics about visitor engagement with a site. One interesting metric is the average length of time a visitor spends on the pages of a site.

    Within Google analytics, under behavior the overview page provides this statistic the whole site.

    For this week's poll I ask the average time on a page for your site as a whole.

    If you drill down under site content then you can also see this statistic for individual pages under all pages, or for sections of a site under content drilldown.

    Besides voting in the poll be sure to share your thoughts about the actual time spent on pages on your site versus what you wish it was.

    For the GPWA website the average time on a page is 1 minute and 22 seconds, but there is significant variance depending on the section of the site where the page resides. I give a few examples from shortest to longest duration:

    Home page: 46 seconds
    Member pages: 1 minute 11 seconds
    News pages: 1 minute 18 seconds
    Forum pages: 1 minute 30 seconds
    Affiliate program pages: 2 minutes 1 second
    Portal site pages: 2 minutes 21 seconds

    I'm not surprised the time is shortest for the home page. Of course, it is most interesting to look at the data above in the context of which pages are most popular, and in the list above, not surprisingly, most of the page views (over 70%) are in the forum section. Next is the home page with close to 10% of page views followed by member pages with 8%.

    About 90-120 seconds for a preview / review.
    And about 30 seconds for front pages / index pages / subject indexes (which list all the previews / reviews)

    scroll depth tracking is worth setting up too [did a user scroll and consume 30% / 60% / 100% of content on page?] , as time on page doesn't really give much valuable data about a session.

    seems excessive

    i bet you are opening links in a new tab, so 'session' seems to be maintained, when user has in fact effectively left your site [in another tab]

    Depends on the nature of the page but a preview/stats page typically 4-5 mins; other pages much lower.

    Average session is just shy of 9 minutes however we are a community based platform which explains time on site for average new/return visitor.

    depends on some factors (where visitor landed for example, etc.), but very roughly about 1 and a half minute
