According to Google Analytics, a particular page has 97710 page views. This page has an exit rate of 57.82% and a bounce rate of 64.4%. According to the Navigation Summary page, 91.76% of page visits were entrances, and 8.24% came from previous pages.
From the page views and entrance rate, I calculate the number of direct entrances as:
.9176 * 97710 = 89659
and from that, I calculate the number of bounces as:
.644 * 89659 = 57740
This seems reasonable. Then, from the exit rate and the number of page views, I calculate the number of exits as:
.5782 * 97710 = 56496
This too seems like a reasonable number...but then I saw that the number of bounces (57740) > the number of total exits (56496)!
I've read about what exactly bounce rate and exit rate are, and I've looked at a few examples online where people showed examples of how to calculate bounce and exit rates. Does anyone see anything wrong with my math? Or do I misunderstand how Analytics works?
