12824RE: [webanalytics] G Analytics: incredible difference in bounce rate for /page.php and /page.php/
- Sep 4, 2007Are the number of visitors to these two pages about the same? Or is the
second page really just a freak aberration of the first? Percentage
values like conversion or bounce rates lose their significance if the
denominator is too small.

Subject: [webanalytics] G Analytics: incredible difference in bounce
rate for /page.php and /page.php/
I'm still a very beginner with Google Analytics and I'm seeing these
Both have a couple of thousand visitors so the sample size can
definitely not explain this difference:
One of the versions has a bounce rate of 8% and the other one has a
bounce rate of 55%.
How could this possibly be? I assume it's one and the same page. Is
the reason that the webmaster (it's not my own site) is using
page1.php and page1.php/ for different traffic streams (maybe the
one for search and the other one for direct traffic esp. for type-
ins which might have an incredibly low bounce rate as they've been
to the site before, chose to come back and thus are unlikely to
bounce off right away?
