Hi All, My site time on site is drop dramatically from 5:20 to 01:23 and keep going. Is this an analytic bug?


I did check all possible reasons for any negative signals from my end. As I attached screenshot you guys can see bounce rate is also Increased but since last two days It drops, but time on site is still going as 1:20 , 1:30 and so on. Plz tell me the possible reasons.

Hi Saurav,

You could be getting an influx of bot traffic or spam traiffc. Make sure you tick the checkbox in your analysis view (keep an unfiltered view) settings to exclude known bots and spiders and add an include filter for your domain (hostname). Bouncing bot traffic could give you the data you describe.
