i know, Bounce Rate = (Visits With Only 1 Page-view) / (Total Visits)

please give me an example with screen shot, i think this equation is wrong.
• Why do you wanna calculate bounce rate? Any good tracking service such as Google Analytics provides it for you?

You are not an SEO Analyst. If you were, you wouldn't be asking such a silly question.

Every analytics program out there calculates this for you.

• Google Analytic calculate Bounce rate= Visits With Only 1 Page view Divided by Total Visits

• Wrong, not working. "Formula = [Single Access] / [Entries] Type : Percent (%)" is also not working, think deep.

• Bounce Rate is a good factor to understand whether your site useful to the visitors. You must try to keep low bounce rates below 45%
High bounce rates is a negative seo factor and your ranking always going down
Don't waste your time to calculate it

• Bounce Rate is a rate % of visitors to a particular site who navigate away from the site after viewing only one webpage. Bounce rate equals to or less than 40%-45% is good for most of the websites.

A bounce is a single-page session on your site which has a session duration of 0 seconds. Bounce rate is single-page sessions divided by all sessions, or the percentage of all sessions on your site in which users viewed only a single page and triggered only a single request to the Analytics server.

For example, when a user opens a single page on your site and then exits without triggering any other requests to the Analytics server during that session. This has 100% bounce rate.

You can calculate it as-

Bounce rate = [(Total number of visitors viewing one page only) / (Total entries to page)]

Below images might help you to better understand how to calculate the bounce rate-

Now basic example to make you understand bounce rate vs proper exit rate-

Hope, now you know what you want to know!!

• Thank you so much, Rajat Tyagi. And I also want to know from that image, which is "Total number visits viewing one page only" and "Total entries to page".

• Well Mostafa, that is not possible in Google Analytics to check total number visits viewing one page only.

However, you can get an idea of this number, since, session duration of 100% bounce rate is 0 seconds. But it can also be the bot attack. These are some of the limitations that GA is having.

• Hi,
Bounce Rate = (Visits With Only 1 Pageview) / (Total Visits)
{{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11070913].message }}
• Bounce rate is the percentage of single-page visits (or web sessions).
It is the number of visits in which a person leaves your website from the landing page without browsing any further.

Bounce rate of a web page = total number of bounces on a page (in a given time period) / total number of entrances on the page (in the same time period).

• Bounce Rate is the percentage of single-page visits to total visits of a certain Dimension. For example, say you are looking at your Organic Traffic and sort by search engine. You follow the row across and see that Bing is delivering a 75% Bounce Rate.

KISSmetrics has an interesting infographic about Bounce Rate that includes an equation, Bounce Rate metrics by industry average, and a number of tips to improve your Bounce Rate.

• Bounce Rate refers to the amount of people who visit a site or an app but immediately switch to other sites or apps without surfing any more pages. Hence, it is the ratio of total number of visits viewing only one page of a site or app, divided by total number of visits to that page visiting other pages of same site or app.

This really is a pointless question since every single analytics has proprietary metrics.

You'll gather data from one source and base it on a random rule.

Carry on...
