How Many Views do You Need for the View Duration to be Calculated?
None of my hubs have many views, but most of them have more than 150, and I cannot see a view duration rating. How many views or how long does it take to see this?

Hey fellow hubbers,I've been posting quite a few hubs recently and I've also been doing quite a lot of SEO for them however, there is some part of the puzzle that just isn't clicking for me. Most of the people that are coming to my hubs are bouncing, my bounce rate is 78%. Can you look at just 1...

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.
