Google analytics bounce rate 2% and under

Our bounce rate has always been 2% and under. Have read today that maybe because the code is in twice but I can't see it twice anywhere. any advice? Or is it just that our users are clicking through the site.

 

Thanks

Hi Ritchie,

2% bounce rate seems impossible. I have never heard or seen such bounce rate without having multiple tracking code. I would suggest you to use tag assistant for troubleshooting. Please share URL if possible.

 

Thanks

website looks ok. Was any recent update done on the site to remove the duplicate GA code 

or 

to remove a GA event code that was being called on page view.

 

Also check the report for longer date range and see for any spikes.

I'd recommend checking to see if the bounce rate is evenly distributed across all pages - go to the landing pages report and see if some pages have a more normal bounce rate, or if they are all equally low. It may be an error on only a few, well visited, pages.

Check also traffic sources. Use the tag assistant and the record function to see what is being sent (as well as GA debugger).

I also note that tag assistant is reporting the presence of the _gat object on your site; probably worth investigating that. https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gajs/methods/gaJSApi_gat
