I just noticed this stat today. I never really looked at it before for some reason. Anyway, my lenses are all 4 or 5 stars. Does that number represent how long a visitor stays on my hub and are those considered good stats?
From what I can tell yes your assumptions are correct. It's hard to say though. Wait for someone with more of an insider track to set you straight though.

I notice that on most of my hubs my visitor duration is 5*s. (a handful of 4*s, but nothing ever less than 4*s). I am wondering if my hubs are just so interesting that my readers stay awhile or is a 5* duration rating fairly easy to achieve? I don't want to pat myself on the back...

I have just realised that the view duration for several hubs of mine is not properly working. Hubs that were previously showing a duration are now reporting that not enough data has been collected. Here are some examples:...

I'm looking at the stats of my hubs like "search phrases" and view duration. My view duration is usually 4-5 stars. Is that a good indicator that the hub will be ranked better & viewers like the hub? I'm not sure how the stats are calculated.

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.

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'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!
