 It seems it's not possible to do this with the free tool i'm using.
 But I'm willing to share the administration with whoever wants to take 
 a look.

 I'll give you an example of a successful small nutrition business which 
 has a blog which attracts roughly 400 unique visitors a day (12K+ each 
 The average time spent on the website is 49 seconds.

 Without analyzing variance, you can easily understand that a lot of 
 those people go there accidentally, spend a few seconds and then leave.
 For the battlemesh results instead, most of the people are really 
 interested in reading the stuff; not many people accidentally look for 
 "mesh network test under load", or keyphrases like that.

 Yes you got the point, which is: if people who know what they're 
 looking for find something and they spend that amount of time reading 
 it, it means the stuff is interesting, over time it will pay off, like a 
 good investment.
