Hi Yaniv,

Exactly, if you've got 50% bounce rate you will see about 50% not-set second pages.

I know this is a bit old, but I'm currently having the same issue. However, the specific page I'm looking at (step1 of my checkout process) has a 0% bounce rate yet about 60% of the sessions have a (not set) when applying the "second page" filter. Any idea why this would be happening? And how to fix it?

I was encountering a similar issue earlier today and I think its related to how Google defines bounces.  Technically, if a user event is set on your first page the user would not be considered "bouncing" despite some not seeing a second page. 

 

As a result, you could have non-bouncing sessions with only one page view.  To get around this, you might want to create a segment of sessions where pageviews > 1.

 

Hope this helps!
