What can I learn from the 'Session Length' stat?
The time between when a visitor accesses your first webpage of their session, and when they access the last is what we call the 'Session Length'. Unfortunately it is not possible to detect with the Standard StatCounter Project when they left your website for a different website. Instead we take the time they accessed your last webpage of their session as their 'exit time'. Although this isn't 100% accurate it is very close and nonetheless provides a valuable insight into your visitors.
Based on this information you can see how much 'pull' and 'interest' your website is generating for your visitors. If you have a low 'Session Length' you may want to think up more ways to encourage your visitors to stay around for longer. Offer them something more.
Common problem with Session Length Stats
If you only install the StatCounter code on one page of your website and your visitors never reload that one page. Then your session length will always be less than 5 seconds! It is highly recommended to install the same code on all pages of your website you want to track.
