Collin Davis: I know this may sound stupid Tim :) because you may have already done that but have you checked for the compatibility of these versions with that your website?
That would be a good test... try segregating the data by sorting the browser by operating system also and screen resolutions.
Dave Elliott: fine, sensible answer... if you havent done it use something likke browser stack to check to make sure versions of ie/the os aren't being stupid, it could be a rendering issue of some kind that is causing a poor user experience.
Tim Capper: Not stupid ;... feck i did not even think of that, dough!
Mike Ramirez: Seems like the bounce rate is high across the board. Is this home page bounce or a specific internal page? I would do as ;suggested and see if the discrepancy is coming from a single source such as a bot.
Tim Capper: Yea, I am digging down at the moment. Have found one sneeky bot, looking for more ;
Pe lagic: <b>Sneaky</b> bots don't use their own useragent string ;(
ps Bot traffic is always direct, specifically they won't have a referrer string in their header requests.
Edwin Jonk: From memory, people did report that the UA of IE 9 is used for scraper bots. Do you notice more duplications?
Micah Fisher-Kirshner: actually, the msn bot affected referral too, otherwise normally you're right. MS is that evil. ;)
Pe lagic: Fake MsnBots, Bingbots, Googlebots etc ;( Just RDNS the IPs to check ;)
