I am wondering if someone can tell me if it is possible that Google can tell how long someone has been on my Website?

Someone mentioned to me that Google can tell if someone is on the Website for a few seconds or a few hours but I don't see how this would be possible.

I can understand if someone was using Google Analytics or had to toolbar installed that Google would be able to see whats going on, or perhaps if they went back to Google and did another search, however, is there a way Google can track user's when my pages have nothing to do with Google, no Google Analytics, no toolbar (assuming the visitor is not using it) etc

Any thoughts?
