      A single page access is automatically a single visit. Using visitors as
      a denominator would measure single page visits per visitor. So if you
      had 25 single page visits and 100 visitors, your single page visitor
      ratio would be 25%. In effect, you would be measuring some general
      visitor engagement, not a page conversion measure. If you have an
      information site or are looking at a campaign, you would want this 25%
      figure to trend down. If you were looking at a campaign, would not plain
      old click through would tell you about the same thing?

      Sorry if that was not clear. The metrics I have available to me are
      single access page visits and entry page visits. I was questioning
      whether I could use these two to measure landing page stickiness
      instead of single access page views and entry page views. Will
      working with visits still keep the equation accurate? My guess is
      yes but I wanted confirmation from others.
