Sessions are the individual periods of time that visitors spend on your site. A visit is ended either after 30 minutes of inactivity or if the user leaves your site for more than 30 minutes
When a user visits your site for the first time, a new visit and unique visitor are both recorded. If the same user returns to the site after their initial visit, only a new visit is added.
The number of times users view a page. This covers all page views; so if a user refreshes the page, or navigates away from the page and returns, these are all counted as additional page views.
Counts the number of pages viewed in an individual session, so whether a visitor viewed the same page once in their visit or five times, the number of pageviews will be recorded as just one.
Average Session Duration
