Is it possible to get statistics of amount of time spend on a website ?
The HTTP protocol is not a continuous flow, when an user open a Web page, browser retrieve data and close connection.
In this case the user can read a web page during several times without open new connections…
The proxy is not able to detect how many times the user stay on the web page.
There is a way: Calculate time difference between each connection BUT.
for example at 15:02:01 user request facebook.com and at 15:02:15 use request again the facebook websites.
Basically user have read the web page during 14 seconds.
Is it true ? An example: with facebook and youtube
There are a lot of widgets that can be installed in desktop.
Each widget is able to ping facebook/youtube periodically.
When using facebook/youtube , browsers ping the facebook/youtube website periodically and automatically.
But user can keep browser open and be outside it’s company !! .
In the real world it is not possible to be sure about the time spend on Websites
Planned for September 2015, we will try to open a beta version that try to provide statistics on user’s spent time using this way:
