Riveted is a Google Analytics plugin that tracks how much time users spend actively engaged on a page.

It has no dependencies and supports Universal Analytics, Classic Google Analytics, and Google Tag Manager.

All instructions and information can be found on the project page.

Background and more details can be found in this blog post.

There's also a blog post with information on how to use the Google Analytics data that Riveted provides.

WordPress Plugin

Riveted is also available as a WordPress plugin. Note that some of the more recent Riveted options are not available in the WP plugin.

  1. Upload the wp-plugin/riveted directory into the /wp-content/plugins/ directory on your server.
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
  3. If you'd like to modify the default settings, go to the Riveted panel under Settings.

  • Riveted Event Name = Riveted
  • Event Category = {{eventCategory}}
  • Event Action = {{eventAction}}
  • Event Label = {{eventLabel}}
  • Event Value = {{eventValue}}
  • Event Non-Interaction = {{eventNonInteraction}}
  • User Timing Event Name = RivetedTiming
