Filter on pagePath: users vs sessions
In a dashboard I have two different statistics: users & session. Both have the filter to include when pagePath contains a certain URL.
The user statistic though reports a higher number than the session statistic and I can't figure out why.
John visits my site three times:
- John visits only the homepage
- John visits the homepage and page A
- John visits only page A
My filter is page A. I would think John is 1 user that visited page A, so the user stat should report 1. Two of the sessions received a pageview for page A, so the session stat should report 2.
Obviously I am wrong as based on the above users could never report higher than sessions for the same period. What seems to be the thing I didn't think of?
