Average Time on Page is just seconds and Bounce Rate is low. It's very confusing.

Hello Google Team!

In the past few days, my team and I noticed unusual data recordings on Google Analytics. Our data shows Average Time on Page between 2 and 5 seconds. We compared it to the Bounce Rates, and surprisingly, these are between 0 - 11%. 

We blocked our IP Address before this to get accurate data. But for some reason, we're getting these numbers.

Any ideas on what could be causing this?

Thank you.

Hi,

You can check if your tracking tag is working properly using the Google Tag Assistant Chrome extension.

Hi Marcela,

Check if there are multiple tracking code present on site for same analytics property. Usually multiple tracking result in sudden reduction of bounce rate.

let us know further to get more help

Hello Noman,

We did have that issue but deleted the "second" tracking code. I believe it takes 35 days till it gets deleted permanently? If Multiple tracking codes is not the issue, what else could it be?

Thank you for your time.

Marcela.
