Visit landing on sub-domain 1: https://1.domain.com, then either click a link or type-in URL goes to sub-domain 2 https://2.domain.com, then left.

The questions are:

will sub-domain 2 get a bounce?

is it reasonable to calculate bounce% in domain 2 as formula: bounce/visits*100%?

 

My understanding is the bounce shall be aligned with entries. As a result, even break down by "server", the above example is not a bounce to domain 1, not a bounce to domain 2 as well.

But since it is a visit to domain 2, as well as a single page visit, consider calculate Single Page Visit/Visits*100% is reasonable. 

As a result, use either of following way is reasonable:

1. bounce/entries*100% and use "entry server" dimension, but not "server"

2. single page visit/visits*100%, use "server" dimension

 

Please let me know your idea. 

Thank you.

If the data is captured into a single report suite from both subdomains and the visitor ID (mid) matches, the Bounce Rate is calculated as they were two pages under a single domain.
