What duration constitutes a page view? 15 seconds? 30? Just wondering because I know that ours count as views when we check something. I wish we could control for that so pages views would be closeer to accurate.
Any time you load a page at all it counts as a page view. So it doesn't matter how long or short you are there. To get more accurate stats you can use Google Analytics, then there are a few ways you can exclude your own views from counting in those numbers.
Hi. Thanks for this info. I was wondering about page views too. Google Analytics can be really complicated and confusing though. I didn't know you could exclude your own views of your hubs from there. I guess I'll have to look into it more.
Thank you, jeffthomson. Very helpful. However, I'm like Ceres Swarz, a little confused about using GA. I use it primarily to check live stats which I find really cool, being able to see who's visiting and what they're reading. I will have to explore how to use it for page views.
Thanks Jan for asking a question most of us wanted to know!

These show at the top of each article, but it would be nice to view them easily. This would give writers an idea as to how engaged readers are without having to check Google Analytics and would be much less tedious. With this feature, we would quickly know which hubs need to be upgraded.

One of the things I try and improve is my average visit duration. I've moved it from about 35 seconds to close to a minute. What do you consider a good Average Visit Duration? Is it worth culling some hubs that seem to get a low AVD?

Stats have updated three times today. The one day, seven day and 30 day totals have changed but the 'Page Views Ever' have remained the same with each update. The last time this happened (in October) I lost 15,000 views in the 'Page Views Ever' total. What's happening now with...

I noticed that one of the Hubmetrics numbers on hubs is view duration. It tells you how long people stay glued to each of your hubs before clicking away for something else. I know that Google measures view duration as well. Do you think that pages that get viewed longer are...
