I want to ask a question; user has a session that continues after midnight. Thus, 2 sessions were created. But the visit numbers of these sessions are not equal.Why ? I think , visitnumber must be equal.

  • I'm not sure I know what a visit number is, but isn't a new session a new visit? GA considers a "crossed midnight" new session the same as any other new session. – Reve Nov 16 at 15:09
  • visitNumber is session number. if the session continues at midnight it will have the same session number.for example: 11.45 session A, 00.30 session B. session numbers of these two sessions must be the same. But it's not the same in the visitor that I am looking at. Why ? – busrauyun Nov 16 at 17:00
  • I think I am not understanding. Why should a new session have the same number as the previous one? – Reve Nov 16 at 17:15
  • Because current session continues after midnight. For example: 11.45 session A, 00.25 session B. If the visit number of session A is 3, it should be 3 in session B. because the session continues after midnight. even fullvisitorid and visitid are equal. only the hits are different. visitNumber of session B writes 4, but its visit number should be 3. If a new session was opened it should have been 4, but the current session continues after midnight. why visitnumber(session number) of session B writes 4 – busrauyun Nov 16 at 20:32
  • The current session doesn't continue after midnight, the part of the visit after midnight is considered a different session. I don't know enough about the various IDs to say why some are the same and some are different, though. – Reve Nov 16 at 20:41
