Post relaunch PVs drop & sessions spike

We relaunched w a new domain a few

months ago and there has been an enormous drop in PVs of 50% and at the same time spike in sessions of 100%.


Plus PVs used to typically be double that of unique PVs, but now they are almost the same. 


Avg time on page has also more than doubled.


My my best guess is that we have a number of outdated links WITHIN our new site from our beta site that redirect to the correct version of the URL ( i.e. redirects to . I'm not sure though, can people please advise me on how best to troubleshoot so I can figure out what is causing this and how to fix it? Do redirects in my new site cause the start of a new session?


Any best guesses and advice would be appreciated. Thank you very much ; )


Ps I've used tag assistant and so far no missing pv tags.

Hi @jay g could you please share the new site - this may imply some code implementation issues but before I make any suggestions it would be extremely helpful to check the site. 


Kind regards,
