Windows 7: Google Analytics question

21 Jun 2015   #1

Google Analytics question

I have a YouTube channel that features my music (I'm a composer). In the audience overview, I often see hits that show 1 pages/session with 00:00:00 average session duration. Most of these apparent hits originate in the U.S. Is this bot activity? How should I interpret these kinds of visits?

I have 00:00:00 average session duration on some of my YouTube (YT) videos also and I believe it is more a "bounce rate" phenomenon than a bot.

See: https://Meaning of 00:00:00 average visit duration? | at the bottom of the best answer are two related urls that also help to explain 00:00:00 average session duration.

To really understand what is happening you will need to apply filters to your channel.

Thanks, Anak! I appreciate your response and I will explore your suggestions. Are you able to track individual YT videos in Google Analytics?

You're welcome,

I believe you can, but only up to 25 videos per channel, see Multi-line chart at: https://YouTube Analytics basics |

If you have more than 25 you would have to create a new/different channel.

Question on file called analytics.js
I have a personal website and I use to monitor how much traffic I have. Lately when I click on sitemeter, down at the bottom it asks if I want to open or save a file called analytics.js. I don't know what it is or if I need it. Does anyone have any information about it? I suppose...
