How is it possible for Google Analytics to show 100% bounce from 2 visits and 9 page views?
My website analytics show Bing 2 visits 9 page views, zero time, 100% new, 100% bounce. It doesn't make sense. Any ideas.
No, it doesn't make any sense. From my experience with Analytics for many different sites of varying degrees of traffic, I find that Google Analytics is highly unreliable for bounce statistics for sites with very low traffic and page visits that average less than 10 seconds. It sounds like you had 2 visits with nine very quick page views, probably less than 10 seconds per page (or averaging less than 10 seconds per page). Google qualifies that as a bounce.
Not a brilliant answer--but something to start with.
If you have multiple pages set up with analytics that are accessible via Bing, then it's possible for 2 different people to access 9 different pages and bounce from them. If they access all 9 pages through Bing, then they wouldn't be logged as new visitors, but Google still wouldn't add them to the visits count.
I completely ignore the bounce rate on my blogs, but I do pay attention to it on sales pages.
If you get 0 time that means its some robot which crawled your site not a human and yes you always have a 100% bounce rate with robots.

My bounce rate @ GA seems very high...70%. Can someone explain what page interaction is ??Can a pageviewer READ a whole article and NOT be an interactive visitor?? And how high are your bounce rates ??

I don't understand something.If the average time people spend on an article is 4.5 minutes, how can the bounce rate be 90%? Doesn't 'bounce' mean that they just go on the site for a split second and then go off?

Would it be possible for HubPages to add some "Adjusted Bounce Rate" code to the Google Analytics tracking code currently in place? Right now if a visitor only looks at 1 page, Google Analytics shows...
