How are Pageviews calculated?

A pageview is an instance of a page being loaded (or reloaded) in a browser. Pageviews is the total number of pages viewed by the visitor since the session started. Repeated views of a single page are counted.

To get a better understanding of when and how the Pageviews are calculated, take for example the scenario below:

  • A user visits your website. A new session is created and the Pageviews counter is now 1.
  • User visits an another page of your website. The Pageviews counter is now 2.
  • User reloads the same page. The pageviews counter is now 3.
  • User goes back to homepage. The pageviews counter is now 4.
  • User leaves your website by closing the browser (not only the tab). The session ends.
  • User opens his browser and visits your site again. A new session is created and the Pageviews counter is now 1 again.

Use Case

The most common use case for this Rule is when you want to ballpark the amount of commitment a website visitor has invested into your website so that you are able to lead them easier to their end goal without scaring them away. It’s a great way to both show your message without increasing the Bounce Rate of your site.
