Will this be a "Bounce" from referrer?

If user comes to page A from Google.com, then close the browser.

Then 1 minute later, s/he comes back from a forum or other 3rd party website, or directly type in the URL.

 

When breakdown "Bounce" by Referrer: Google.com, will this be a Bounce?

(I think if do not breakdown, it will not be a bounce, since this "Visit" contains 2 page views / server calls)

 

Thank you

This would not be considered a bounce, because the second page view would still be considered the same visit as the first one from google, given it is within the 30 minute visit timeout window - and is from the same browser (even though the user closed it)

Thanks for your reply, but if the 2nd page view is referred from 3rd party website, or Bing.com, it will not be considered from Referrer Google, but referrer is Bing.com, is it?

Does it mean it will only count the "entry referrer"?

The 2nd page view would have the 3rd party referrer/bing. The 'Entry' referrer (for the visit) would remain as google.

Yes, a bounce would only ever be attributed to the Entry referrer because a Bounce is when there is only one page view in the Visit.
