I have a page with only images with the Pinterest Pinit button prominent on the images. I am seeing a high bounce rate. Is it possible every time someone clicks on the Pinit button to share an image, it counts this as a bounce?

When you click on the button it opens Pinterest in a new tab.

  • Bounce rate as measured by Google Analytics? Do you have any "events" implemented? Like clicking the Pinit button would ping GA with an event? Dec 15 '18 at 0:40
  • No I don't have an event implemented. FYI I just updated the description to point out that it opens Pinterest in a new tab.

Opening a new tab shouldn't count as a bounce. The existing session will persist as long as there is still a tab open on your site (for 30 minutes of inactivity, by default).
