Average Page Depth – Web Analytics

In Web analytics software and applications, including Google Analytics, the average page depth is the measurement of the number of pages on your Web site that a visitor views during a single browser session. In your analytics report you would typically see a breakdown of the number of visits with 1-page view, 2-page views and so on.

The average page depth may also be called depth of visit.
