On-page behavior metrics Seen pages People who see your content won't necessarily engage with it. Take a second and think about what a metric actually tells you. Let's say you've created a blog post that has had unexpected success in terms of pageviews.

What pageviews really tell you is how far your content has traveled since the time you launched the post. Think of pageviews as a measure of the reach of your content.

If your goal is ultimately to drive readers to that page, then a high bounce rate doesn't matter as much.
