4.33 -> 04:20 Adobe Analytics
179.04 -> 02:59 Google Analytics
When you pull metrics like average time on page from digital analytics tools the number format looks like this: 4.33
I remember scratching my head the first time I saw this in Adobe Analytics (then Omniture). Was the other dot in the colon missing and did this mean 4:33 or 4 minutes 33 seconds? Or did this actually mean 4 minutes 0.33 * 60 seconds (0.33 multiplied by 60) which equals 4 minutes 19.8 seconds?
Drum roll please… it means 4 minutes 0.33 * 60 seconds or 04:20. For those of you who were able to convert 4.33 from an a number with a decimal to time in your head please pat yourself on the back and let me know in the comments.
