Hi. I noticed that the view duration on my hubs has only been measured on two of them. It will be five months soon that I've been on here. Is that about the going rate or time period -- or is it that we only get a couple measured for view duration? Lots yet to learn. Thank you.
I'm thinking the view duration can only be measured when it averages above a certain amount of time. I only have about 2 hubs myself with a view duration on them, and I've been here almost 5 months too.
Wow. Live and learn. I didn't even notice the "view duration" thing (or have it register). This is only a guess, but it looks to me like it may be traffic-related. I went to my better Hubs, and they seem to have view duration. Then I went to my "stinkos", and it says, "not measured yet". They've been up for ages, so I'm guessing they get so little traffic it can't be measured. I'm sure someone else (who pays attention to these things, unlike "a certain person I know") knows the answer for certain. I just figured as long as I was here I'd add what I saw from my own.
(After I wrote that I thought it may have come out wrong. The reason I call my own low-traffic ones "stinkos" is that they've been up for ages and just don't get traffic. For someone else with Hubs without enough traffic to measure it, it's more likely a matter of them not being up long enough.)
I believe it is entirely traffic related. I have a relatively new hub with plenty of views that has view duration while older hubs with few views still "do not have enough data."
I'm sure once you get to (example only) 500 views, hubpages diplays it on average.
However if you only have a few views, the statistics could be quite out, leading you to believe your hub is less or more attractive to the average reader than it actually is.
Just like throwing a coin 5 times could leave you with 5 heads and no tails, while throwing it 100 times is more accurate and 10,000 times even more so.
Rafini, hello, and Lisa HW, hello and why lit, hello. Thank you for your responses. Nice to meet you online. That must be it, I guess. It must be a matter of traffic.

After two months of issuing the Hubs, I can't see View Duration.Why?There are page views, I still see this (-not measured yet-) beside View Duration in Hub Metrics.

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...

Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more like 30. The articles I worked long and hard to produce, sit there doing nothing...

Thank you in advance for taking a look at my hubs. I wrote several hubs about 6 weeks ago and have gotten consistent (not huge) search engine traffic but low view duration. Before I go forward I want to figure out what I am doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated-brutal and constructive...

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...
