Session Length Filter

Quickly find your engaged visitors with the new Session Length filter

Session Length is an important indicator for measuring how engaged your visitors are with your website, or how quickly they exit! Now you can filter by Session Length in Statcounter to explore your more engaged visitors or to examine sessions that were unexpectedly short.

For example, setting the Session Length filter to display sessions between 0 and 5 seconds will show you the visitors that didn’t engage with your landing page or potential bots and click fraud traffic.

Longer sessions with multiple page views will indicate more engagement and may warrant watching a session replay recording to see if these visitors were experiencing problems or if they reached their goal.

So whether you’re more interested in short or long sessions the new session length filter can save you time by creating a shortlist of sessions to explore further.

To filter by Session Length, go to Recent Activity > Visitor Activity in the left menu and select Filters, then Session Length.

  1. In tried this counter and when the slider was moved nothing happened. I took it to 1 hour with no changes from 1 minute.
    I don’t know if it matters – I’m on a Windows 11 PC.
