Time On Site Is Not A Measure Of Success
Time On Site Is Not A Measure Of Success

But it is the most obvious one to measure. If you ever read about how fantastically well a new startup or company is doing, then you are going to run into that dreaded metric of "time on site". Essentially it is the average amount of time that people are spending browsing your website or app. And the more of it the site gets, the better your website looks, supposedly. And even more recently, the total combined time on site for online services has hit the scene, giving out ludicrous numbers that make you question if we haven't all lost our minds.

creating your own it crowd

“Have you tried turning it off and on again?” Thus goes the punchline of one of Britain’s most entertaining and often surreal sitcoms of the 21st century, The IT Crowd.
