Google puts a time stamp whenever any user lands on a particular page then it compares the time stamp of one page with the other. E.g. Any user enters the site on Page A and moves to Page B then lands to Page C and finally leaves the site. In this case, a time stamp is put on Page A suppose its 10:10, when the user moves to Page B, another time stamp is placed on Page B, suppose its 10:20 and then when the user lands on Page C, another time stamp is placed, lets say 10:30. Now to calculate time on Page A, Google will subtract the time stamp on Page B with that of A. In this case, 10:20-10:10 which will come to 10 minutes for Page A.

Sandbox is penality given by google according to age of your website
if your website age is less and started ranking fast in search engines then google will put this penality.

When any user open your blog page the time when the use reach the page and the time when the user close your page or click to other link on your page.

All the time is calculated by the Google and this time frame is depend to increase or decrease your bounce rate.

Suppose that a user open your website at 09:40:32 (hh:mm:ss) and close it to 09:41:02 then the total time spend on your website is 30 Seconds.

Hope you this will help you..

Yes, Google does calculate the page loading time for ranking, So a good host with faster page loading is much important for the first place of goole. Thats why there are difference between $1 Hosting and $100 Hosting

Google has its own criteria for calculating the same..

If a user comes on a website stays more then 30 sec then its a 1 Visit or 1 Session.

1 Session is active for every 30 minutes.

Google Always provide average time duration for a visit. Which is calculated on the basis of time he spend, page views and all.
