Why it is important
Monitoring "Items Viewed per Session" is vital for e-commerce stores as it directly reflects user interaction with product catalogs in a single session.

A higher average suggests a deeper engagement with offerings, aiding businesses in optimizing website layouts, refining personalized recommendations, and tailoring marketing strategies to improve user satisfaction and potentially drive higher conversion rates within each session.
(Items Viewed / Number of Sessions)
Calculation example
Suppose E-commerce Store Q had the following data during a specific period:
Users engaged in a total of 1,000 sessions on the e-commerce platform.
Across all sessions, users viewed a total of 5,000 items.

Items Viewed per Session = Items Viewed / Number of Sessions
Items Viewed per Session = 5,000 / 1,000
Items Viewed per Session = 5
