Bounce rate vs. Page Depth

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello, I have a very low Bounce Rate on my website at an average of 6%.  However, when I navigate to Page Depth report by taking this path Audience > Behavior > Engagement > Page Depth, I see that 57% of my visitors only visit 1 page.  What is the difference between Bounce Rate and Page Depth?  Why is the Bounce Rate so low but the Page Depth of a visit of 1 page is so high? 

 

Thank you!

exactly.

 

there is an event firing as soon as page view fires,

 

  1. ec:
    interceptjs
  2. ea:
    show_intercept_banner
  3. el:

 

It is coming from https://cdn.rawgit.com/ten7/interceptjs/v0.2/jquery.interceptjs.js

 

 if (use_ga) {
                    ga('send', 'event', 'interceptjs', 'show_intercept_' + settings.type, window.location.href);
                }

possible reasons might be: an event or an extra page view is being triggered from the landing first page, so bounce rate is low.

 

can you please share the home page url?

Hi @KRISTI O,

To check as @A T said, you can install Tag assistance plugin here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tag-assistant-by-google/kejbdjndbnbjgmefkgdddjlbokphdefk?h...


and check if the analytics code is firing twice on same property.

Thanks,
Ritwik
