 Avg. time on page: The average amount of time users spent viewing a specified page or screen, or set of pages or screens.

 

Bounce rate: The percentage of single-page sessions in which there was no interaction with the page. A bounced session has a duration of 0 seconds.

 

Avg. Session Duration: The average length of a Session.

Hi Abhishek

 

In your specific case 95% of the users bounce without interacting further with your site. The time on page for these visitors will not be measured by Google Analytics. So the 5% that choose to interact further with your site has an average time on the specific page at 7 minutes. The average session time for these users will thus be 7 minutes or longer.

No, Average session time is only 56 sec.

Okay when you want to look at session time you should try and use a segment like this:

This should give you the correct avg. session time for users that have seen the exact page.

If result is the same it must be because avg. session time also includes your zero second bounces.
