How to create a time spent on page goal in Zoho PageSense | Help Guide

Create a time spent on page goal

You can track the amount of time spent by your visitors on your web page using the Time Spent on Page goal in PageSense. This goal allows you to track the conversion rate whenever a visitor exceeds the set time frame (in seconds) on the page. For example, say you want to check whether visitors read the latest exercise tips on your fitness website. You can set the time spent on page goal to be greater than 120 seconds, assuming this is how long it takes to get the gist of your article. This way, you can track it as a conversation if the visitor stays on the page for more than two minutes.

To create a time spent on page goal:
1. Click Goals on the left pane, then click the New Goal button. 

Choose the goal type as Time Spent on Page, then add a descriptive name for it.

Enter the URL of the web page for which you want to track the time spent by visitors and click Next.

You can also track the time spent by visitors across multiple target pages by enabling the Advanced button. This option also allows you to use different URL match types, and further include or exclude a group of web pages from being tracked.
4. Enter the time in seconds inside the text box, then click Next
For example, let's say you want to track if visitors spend a minimum of 90 seconds on your blog site. In this case, the 'Time spent' goal helps track conversions whenever a visitor spends more than 90 seconds on the specified blog page.

Click Launch to finish setting up the goal and start running it on your web page.
You will be able to track conversions and analyze your visitor metrics for the set goal under the
