Average Daily Unique Browsers (Ave Daily UB):
The average of the Unique Browsers per day in the reporting month.
Each web browser (or device) visiting an audited site is assigned a unique cookie ID to help determine browser uniqueness. This metric displays the number of Unique Browsers which visited a site within the selected reporting period. The Unique Browser metric is scaled to account for users who have cookies disabled.
The total number of web pages viewed within the selected reporting period.
The total number of times UBs return to a site, having left for more than 30 minutes, during the reporting period. This is calculated by multiplying UB Frequency by Unique Browsers.
The total amount of time, reported in thousands of seconds, of all UBs spent on site in the reporting period. This is calculated by multiplying Page Impressions (PI) by Average Page Duration (APD).
The frequency metric represents the average number of times a Unique Browser returns to a site during the reporting period. This is calculated by dividing the number of UB sessions by total UBs.
The average time pages were viewed on the browser screen for a selected period. This metric is calculated by dividing the total duration of Page Impressions that are less than 30 minutes by the number of Page Impressions. Note: If a page impression lasts 30 minutes or greater it is assumed that the page is no longer being viewed. This is removed from the total duration as it may distort the data.
A User Session reflects a period of user activity on a website, provided there is not more than 30 minutesâ€™ inactivity between consecutive events for the same user. This report shows the average length of a User Session. This is calculated by dividing the total of the Page Durations by the total number of User Sessions.
