time on page and session duration as dimensions

L.S.

 

I'm trying to analyze engagement. I do this with a custom report that has two dimensions: Page Depth and Session Duration. As metrics I use Sessions and Users.

 

My problem is that I get way more Sessions and Users than I expected. When I sum them I get over 10 times more than I actualy had in the date range.

 

Am I doing something wrong?

Hey Daniel, how are things?

 

Sessions is a common metric to have higher numbers then expected because one single user can generate multiple sessions.

It's important to understand this base of yours, can you provide some numbers? What was your expected numbers and how did you find out that the number is 10x higher? Do you have another source to compare to?

 

Also, it's important to understand what are you traffic sources to try to identify any different behavior or even tag errors (custom UTMs, wrong installation or even snippet duplication on website and those kind of things.
