Reduce Bounce Rate
[resolved] What happens when page is left open for days? (2 posts)

    I'm just wondering what happens when someone leaves a page open on a computer without closing it.

    How does GA handle it?

    How does your plugin handle it?

    (I tend to do that with blog posts, refreshing once in a while for newest comments.)

    Hi inge12,

    Good question.

    Since Google gets a signal every 10 seconds that the page is still open, Analytics will register this. The average Time-on-Page value will increase if many people leave the page open the whole day.

    Although it is the real Time-on-Site you may want to know how much time people spend reading your content. That will be possible in the next plugin's update.

    Thanks for the idea!
