Unusually Low BR > Possible Implementation Error

Our website has been registering unusually low bounce rates, 0.1 - 0.5 % continuously for the past few months. 

 

I noticed this repeated script to generate an analytics code in the site source code. Each script references a different GA account. 

 

<!-- Google Analytics -->
<script>(function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){(i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)})(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');ga('create','UA-85404356-1','auto');ga('require','linkid','linkid.js');ga('require','displayfeatures');ga('send','pageview');</script>
<!-- End Google Analytics --> <!-- google analytics -->
<script>(function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){(i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)})(window,document,'script','https://www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');ga('create','UA-27219222-1','auto');ga('send','pageview');</script>
<script>if(window.HTMLPictureElement===undefined){document.createElement("picture");jQuery.getScript('/content/themes/searcy/assets/scripts/picturefill.min.js');}</script> </head>
<body class="home page page-id-11 page-template-default sidebar-primary">
<!--[if IE]>

Would this create a potential issue for GA possibly resulting in unusually low BR?

Hi,

 

When you are tracking to multiple properties from the same site, you need to modify the second tracker to be a named tracker.

Let me know if you have more questions.
