Average Time on Site

Level 1

Hello all, is the metric average time on site measured correctly if, for example, within a visit to a page, no other page is called but several hits are generated?

 

For Example:

 

Timestamp

Page                       

12:04:20

Product page A

12:05:30

Product page A

12:07:00

Product page A

 

      • 12:04:20 - 12:05:30 - 1 minute 10 seconds
      • 12:05:30 - 12:07:00 - 1 minute 30 seconds

 

 

Total amount = 00:02:40

Average time on site = ?

 

No further/other Page name is captured but within the visit several hits happend (e.g. clicks and overlays opens etc.). Will then be the average time on site in combination with Page Name Dimension measured correctly?

Adobe Analytics documentation has a page on how time spent is calculated: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/analytics/components/metrics/time-spent.html?lang=en

You can refer to the Examples provided there to understand how this metric is reported. In your case, the "prop1" example might be the most relevant.
