Google Analytics - viewing a page

I'm trying to explore the capabilities of Google Analytics.

I'm aware that Google Analytics do provides the Average Page View per Session, but can Google Analytics knows how long a user viewing a specified page per session? If yes, how do I know that?

Thank you.

Hi Lucas,

Behavior > Site Content > All Pages

Thank you for the comment. Yup, I'm looking into that area as well.

The problem I'm having right now is I got some HTML panel which was opened via Javascript/jQuery, how can I track that as well?

some HTML panel which was opened via Javascript/jQuery

Any chance the panel is an actual, separate, html page? If so, having the GA code on that page should be enough.

If not, you will likely need to setup a GA event to fire each time that panel is open. You may also need to setup an event to track the amount of time the panel is open.

yup, think my colleague already placed an event tracking in that JavaScript. But it seems that GA is not able to tell how long the page is viewed/panel is opened?

if this can be done, can you show me how to do this? Thank you
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Before I get too in depth, I notice the event labels are named after pdf files. This leads me to a related question.

Are you trying to see how long someone is viewing a pdf file for?

Sorry for late reply as I was on some seminars earlier this week.

Not really...

Let me try to explain my current issue again.

My colleague was developing a website portal for my client. Some of the site contents were populated via some Javascript and displayed on screen (like some divs, triggered by Javascript). Now the client wants to know how many of them actually clicked on that "link" and how long they view the contents.

Appreciate if you can inject some insights here, thanks again.
