Times are inaccurate

When many users visit my landing page, piwik reports the time on the page as 0s. The landing page is a flash game, so users don’t go to other pages. are people really leaving instantly, or is piwik incorrectly reporting times, or is facebook ads giving me a bunch of fake users, or something else?

I’m using piwik 1.3

To date Piwik can only track time on page correctly if the user does some kind of actions Piwik can detect (e.g. clicks some links or buttons). Actions in flash games won’t be detected by piwik as long as you don’t call them manually from the flash application. Support Ping requests to report a better ‘time on page’ · Issue #2041 · matomo-org/matomo · GitHub will help tracking such use cases.

You can call, from flash, piwikTracker.trackPageView() with custom names to record flash interactions in visits
