Dear Team,

 

Our website http://goo.gl/NrxcF9 has 5.95% Bounce Rate and we checked from Google Tag Assistant it's showing no problem.

 

We want to confirm the Bounce Rate tracked by GA is ok

 

Thanks

Hi Kamlesh,

your site has two google analytics tracking ids, that is why you are seeing a very low bounce rate which is unexpected as compared to the speed. Please make sure to have a single tracking id

join our google+ community to get answers to most common queries related to GA https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/100140026864685295841

hope this help you

cheers

Dear Noman Karim,

We are using second UA id for third party tool VUUKLE for comments, and this is added on all our websites and there is no problem with Bounce Rate.

Regards,
Kamlesh

Norman is correct. If you are firing your GA code twice on the same page, you may get a false bounce rate.
I had this exact problem before also.

Additionally, I would like to add
You CAN have multiple GA_id on your page(s), but you have to apply logic to them.
1. Each GAID should only fire ONCE
2. EVENTS assigned to a GAID can fire one time or multiple times
3. Prevent false bounce rate by making sure your GA id only fires ONE time (use (right click > Inspector Tool) to view GA ID fires on test.


a. For CPC landing pages, I use a seperate GA-ID, for example
12345678-2(where "-2" indicates cpc LP and cpc conversion funnel pages only)

When I separate them, I usually get better GA + AW results.

Another solution is to use "USER" and "SESSION" based segments or filters to resolve false conversions, sometimes certain segments can get you better and more accurate results.
Experiment with different segment or filter combinations with query explorer and look at bounce rates

Hi Kamlesh,

please read through this article to know how to implement multiple tracking id to a same website and check it you have done it right. http://marketlytics-.com/blog/adding-multiple-google-analytics-tracking-codes-to-webpage
this article may also be helpful for you http://analytical42.com/2016/low-bounce-rate-google-analytics/

the main reason why bounce rate is unexpected is due to improper use of tracking id, while google publisher tag is inactive on your site. Please recheck and make sure you are using the id correctly.

hope this helps

VUUKLE for comments are using GA ID for own tracking purpose. If we have same case please suggest for any alternate salutation.

the second cause for a low bounce rate would be firing an interaction event on page load.

Hi,

Yes, it is caused by the event.

ga("send", "event", "Adblock", "300X100AT_com_content_view__Rightnav", "false")
