As per Adobe Analytics documentation, Bounces are defined as :
"A visit that consists of a single server call. For example, a single page visit is a bounce if a visitor does not interact with the page in a way that sends data to Adobe, such as clicking a link or a video start. If more than a single hit is received in a visit, a Bounce is not counted."
Suppose I have a custom link server call which triggers immediately after the pageload call when I enter my site . Adobe Analytics will document this visit as a non bounced visit, since there were multiple server calls.
Is there any configuration/coding technique which would make Adobe Analytics to conclude such a visit (with only a pageload call and one custom link server call in the session) as a Bounced Visit? Basically can we disable the custom link from Bounce Rate calculation?
I know we can do this in Google Analytics where in we can tag events with 'opt_noninteraction' to make it not part of the Bounce rate calculation
This works for "bounce rate", but not if you are looking at bounce rate for other associated things, like marketing channel or eVars. If the non-interactive event fires BEFORE the pageview -- which happens to us about 20% of the time -- the Entry is lost to the page. That causes Entries to not be counted, and can lead to "bounce rates" (single access rates) of greater than 100%.
