Blog traffic: Length of visitor stays

My morning RSS reading includes several keyword searches through PubSub's searching facilities. One of my searches brings me new posts that use "blog research" in their text. This morning I caught a dilly from Blog Business World. Check out Blog traffic: Length of visitor stays.

Blog visitor traffic is composed of several components.

Along with numbers of visitors, their entry page to the blog, and whether the blog was accessed from a search engine or an external link, is the matter of how long a visitor stays at the blog.

Research conducted by my good friend Darren Rowse of the must read Pro Blogger has determined that the average visitor remains at a blog for all of 96 seconds.

That's an entire minute and a half.

That's not very long.

It's an interesting article with some very useful numbers. I've already added the sources to my Reference Manager database.
