Hi Everyone


I want to know can average session duration of any page be zero? is there any impact of 100% bounce rate on average session duration.And If yes then at what condition it can be zero?


Thanks & Regards

Hello Cherry,

The length of time in a session. Calculation is typically the timestamp of the last activity in the session minus the timestamp of the first activity of the session. if a visitor does not navigate to any further pages, then Analytics does not know their time on your site, and concludes with 0:00 time on site.

Hope that helps to understand this

Hi Cherry A,

Further to Rahul G's excellent answer, all bounces have and average session duration of 0 seconds. A landing page with 100% bounce rate will always show average visit length and average time on page as 0 seconds.

Best of Luck!
