As indicated by ForgotPassword4, the time spent on the last page/interaction is not counted. However, there is a way around this in some cases. 

 

The "last page" is typically the last one the user sees before leaving the site. So on domainA.com they click a link that goes to, say, domainZ.com. You can create a function to generate a custom link type call (pe=o) if the destination domain is different from yours. This provides an "exit" call that will allow the time spent calulation for the last (real) page.

 

In our case, we typically have an exit pop-up on our site that accomplishes the same thing.

A visit with a single hit will not have a recorded time.  This is similar to how anything that happens after the last hit, before the user departs the site, is not included in time calculations.
