Hello All,

Case 1:

 

In GA if a user comes to my website and spent more than 30 minutes for example say 35 minutes in my website without leaving my website how many session is counted?

 

My assumption: 1 session,1 user only

 

Case 2:

In GA if a user comes to my website and spent more than 30 minutes for example say 35 minutes in my website leaves my website and then returs how many session is counted?

 

My assumption: 2 session, 1 user only,1 returning user.

 

 

Am I right?Please explain

1 - As long as users are not idle on your site for more than 30 minutes, they can spend 2 hours and the session will be the same. If they are idle for more than 30 minutes, when they resume activity, a new session is triggered.

2 - As long as users don't take more than 30 minutes to return to your site, the session will be the same when they do return. A new session will be triggered when users take more than 30 minutes to return to your site.

3 - The midnight threshold will trigger a new session no matter what.

Hope that helps.
