    I have thins blog that i have it locked with content locker from AWM.In google analytics it says 162 unique visits,311 pageviews , 1:44 minutes Avg, Visit Duration.Awm says that i have 20 cliks and 2 conversions.The question is.How did those 162 uniques were able to see 311 pages (1.85 pages avrege) if my blog is content locked?I have 13 visits with 31-60 seconds,17 visits with 61-180 seconds and 14 visits with 181-600 seconds with 30-55 pageviews.How in the hell could they do that if it was locked?And i know for sure that ppl visiting my blog don't know nothing about those surveys blockers or content locker bypass methods.This happens everyday.In analytics i have alot of pageviews but only get 40-50 cliks on awm with 12.5% conversion rate.Can anyone enlighten me of how the pageviews are getting counted by analytics?I thought once it was locked they should only be able to see 1 page right?So 162 uniques (supposing nobody unlocks it) should have 162 pageviews right?I can't explain this to myself so i really need someones help.I even think AWM is robbing me but i don't want to belive that.So please enlighten me.Thank you!

    Well,Google analytics shows 162 uniqes and 311 pages viewed (1.85 average).How can that be if i only had 3 conversions and awm only shows 20 clicks.that means someone viewed more than 1st page,witch is locked but i didn't get the conversions.please take a minute to read as i explained it better in my first post.

    40 visitors spent more than 2 minutes on my blog.Who would spend 2 minutes on a locked blog?But they also visited 130 pages.How?cause i`m sure they don't know how to bypass the content locker in other way

    they probably left the tab open for a while before they checked it...
    and i think page views is also increased when the user refreshes the page....so if you get 162 visitors and everyone refreshes the page once that means you get two page views for each visitor...once when they viewed it first and once when they refreshed it (total 324 page views). But i am not sure about this never used google analytics

    look at the pages the visitor is landing on.

    Do you have your 'tags' page locked as well? or your 'categories' page?

    actually the blog is only one page with 4-5 posts in all.and i don't think anyone is refreashing or is leaving the tab open .this things happen everyday.i don't know what to think and i really don't know how to explain it better.

    get some livestats somewhere else and take a look

    You are going to have a few users spend a long time there as they are going to try to complete the survey/offer. This takes time to do.

    This, you will have people trying to fill out the survey. Or looking at the survey, then giving up on it. So they will rank some time on site.

    You will also have people refreshing the page, trying to get past the survey. As mentioned, some people opening it in a tab and leaving it.

    The are a number of reasons. Check in your stats what pages are being visited. Also put a tracker on your site that shows what each individual visitor does. That will give you a better idea.

    I think there is a mistake on AWM lockers because when i use AdGateMedia locker on my site i get 300+ clicks but with AWM i get only 180-200 clicks with the same traffic.

    I don't think it's abnormal for users to spend 2+ minutes on a content locked blog. However are your users able to access any page without getting the locker pop up? Sometimes through search engines they might pull up a page that you forgot you created or forgot to lock.

    The content locker pops up immediatly.0 seconds.So they don't get to see much, just a flash.I get 500-700 uniques/per day and i have 20-30 of them spending 181-600 secondd and 15-20 spending between 600-1800 seconds.I mean come on..who spends 30 minutes on a locked blog if not trying to complete the offer?
    The fact is that on this blog i only display 1 offer trough conten locker.So i know it easy to complete.Some days i get 20% Conversion Rate and some days i get 5% or less.I`m just saying..
