My thought is that of the 330 who exit, 210 are bounces, which leaves
120 exits that still need to be accounted for. Then taking the 500 total
visitors minus the 210 who left via bounce, there are 290 visits that
still need to be sorted out. Those 290 consist of both folks who arrived
internally (150), and those who arrived directly but didn't bounce (140,
or 350-210). Therefore, the "exit" pool would be the 120 remaining exits
divided by the 290 remaining unaccounted visits, or ~41%.
Yeah, what I'm really looking for is a straight answer on whether
bounces are a percentage of total exits, as I've been getting different
explanations from within my organization depending on whom I ask. If
they are, the difference in bounces and total exits is then an "exit" as
you defined above, which changes how I view an exit as an engagement
metric.In my previous post, I didn't account for people who came
directly and took a meaningful action on the page before exiting, which
lowers the eff...
What I'm trying to understand is if there are 210 bounces and 330 exits,
that would make 540 visitors leaving the website from this page out of
500 visits. I was thinking that a bounce is a subset of total exits,
since they both technically involve a visitor leaving the site, but are
defined by how they got there.Please help me understand what I'm missing
here:There are 500 visits to the page. Of those 500, 350 came to the
page directly, which would mean 150 arrived via another page on the
So let's say a page has 500 visits, 350 entries, 210 bounces, and 330
exits (scaling down numbers I'm seeing for an actual page of mine).
Would that be a 66% exit rate and 60% bounce rate, or would it be a 66%
exit rate with 64% of those exits qualifying as a bounce?Referring to
this comment: Exits get a +1 during every visit no matter what, as long
as there was a variable value in that visit. Bounces get a +1 whenever a
visit consists of a single hit.
