Quick question about visitor duration

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hey guys, I have absolutely no experience at all with Google Analytics, so I figured I'd ask about it here.

 

Using Google Analytics, are you able to see how long a specific IP address stayed on a page? 

 

Thanks!

Hi Kurt :-)
No you cant. GA does not track/report any personally identifiable info such as visitor IP, using it in such a way goes against the GA TOS..

You can get a good amount of information about individual visitors via the User Explorer reports

If you are code savvy or have a web developer, then depending on how the web site works, you may also

be able to setup and use the User ID feature as well

eta.. the following article is a good read for understanding analytics and how it calculates time on page
