Can someone please explain the difference between Time Spent per Visit and Average Time Spent on SIte? I reviewed the Time Spent page on the Analytics Components Guide but felt the definitions were similar and couldn't quite understand the differences. I know one is typically higher than the other.
Time spent per visit (Seconds)
Total seconds spent / (visit-bounces)
Represents the average amount of time visitors interact with a specific dimension item during each visit.
Average time spent on site (Seconds)
Represents the total amount of time visitors interact with a specific dimension item, per sequence with a dimension item. It is not just limited to “site” averages as the name suggests. See How Time Spent is Calculated section for more information on sequences.
Note: This metric will very likely differ from Time Spent per Visit at a dimension item level due to the differences in the denominator in the calculation.
