I'm a bit confused and wonder if any of you have the answer. On my hubpage stats all my hubs have 4 or 5 stars for "View Duration" but on google analytics it's showing most visitors leaving straight away. How can that be? One of them must be wrong!
What is there to wonder about "view duration"....the analytics
I would break down the view times in google analytics. Look at how they've been this week compared to last for instance.
Also click entrance sources. I often get good time on the page from google and bad from yahoo. Google usually drops a new site after a week or so and then reinstates it once it has aged a bit (a couple of months for my stuff). All this affects average time on page.
I wouldn't worry what the hub stats say. They won't affect your SERPS only the analytics matters.
Also, I don't personally care about bad yahoo stats if the google stats are healthy.
My memory might be a little fuzzy, but I believe Google Analytics treats it as a "bounce" if you do not navigate to another page at the same site.
The "time on page" is how long someone is on the page before navigating to another page, but if they just leave the site I believe Analytics lists the time as just 0 no matter how long they were really there.
oops, I dint read close enough
"The "time on page" is how long someone is on the page before navigating to another page, but if they just leave the site I believe Analytics lists the time as just 0 no matter how long they were really there."
the original landing page of a 'site" is not measured on its own, only a combined time of all the pages viewed on the site by one visitor before bouncing to a new domain.
but ""The "time on page" is how long someone is on the page before navigating to another page," is not completely right, as it includes the time one is on "another page" as long as it is within the same site (domain)

I have several hubs for which Google Analytics reports "Avg Time on Page" as 00:00:00. But in HP stats, those same articles show 5 stars for View Duration. The figures for page views seem to track between GA and HP.Anybody have an idea about the view duration discrepancy?

I saw where this issue has been addressed in the past and supposedly corrected. But for many weeks now, especially toward the end of the week and weekends, my HubPages stats will not update for hours and sometimes even days at a time. An example would be "Includes data from 17 hours ago and...

It would be very useful to those of us who work hard to rank well for keywords to be able to see exactly which keywords are working on a daily, weekly, monthly and overall basis.A simple listing of keywords and the number of hits for each keyword phrase would be awesome! I can even supply some...
