Google Analytics - SessionsThink of Sessions as the number of times someone visits your site to accomplish something. Maybe they arrive via search, or by directly typing in your URL, or by clicking a link in a social media share. However they arrive, and however long they stay, a “session” has started.

The official Google Analytics definition of a session is a group of interactions one user takes within a given time frame on your website (and Google Analytics defaults the time frame at 30 minutes).
