I have some strange data I am trying to figure out.
For most of 2017, the bounce rate for my site has been around 85%. The time on page was about 2:00 minutes. Pages per session were a little over 1.
I added a related posts widget to expose some relevant posts for visitors also read. Since that time, the bounce rate has dropped to around 20%. The average time on page has gone up to a little under 5:00 minutes. Yet the pages per session is the same, a little over 1.
Any one have some idea what is going on?
