    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.
