Day 44: Bounce Rate Is 0%? What's Going On?

Last Update: August 25, 2018

As usual, I hadn't intended to blog again today until I noticed something strange in my Google Analytics.

As of right now, my site has a exact flat 0% bounce rate.


To be honest, I'm not sure if there's some kind of technical issue going on here? Is it possible to achieve a 0% bounce rate or is there something funny going on behind the scenes?

So, should this be a success post or another ticket to sitesupport?

Looking forward to hear what you think.

That's a new one... haven't seen that before. Have you drilled down to see user behavior and flow? I zero might be theoretically possible if every user visits more pages on your site without dropping off or hitting the back button. If that's the case... I need to know your secret. How are you keeping them on your site? :-D

Yeah that’s a good suggestion, I’ll go back and check the behaviour flow for the last 7 days- the bounce rate is for the last 7 too.

I’ll let you know but I will be more than a bit confused if the behaviour flow reports drop offs after 1 visit whilst the bounce rate says 0%

It’s not like google analytics to contradict itself like that.

Hi, Benji...I've never seen a site with ZERO % bounce rate. I didn't think such a situation was possible...

That’s what has me confused. Google analytics is usually pretty bang on though. Don’t really know what’s happened here.

I don't really know what to say. I'd lie low for a couple of days to see if remains like this, unless you wish to give support a quick shout about it

Great reason for being a zero

Thanks! It's one of the only stats where I get happier the lower it gets.

Im following to see what others say. I thought the lower the bounce rate the better but I am new at this and not sure.

Yeah that's right! Low bounce rate is a great thing, that's why it seems so unusually good to be at a complete 0%
