1) Set a certain amount of time on page (say, 30 seconds) as an event so that it doesn't count as a bounce?
and / or
2) Set a certain amount of scrolling down the page to an event (say, the bottom of an article).
And is this the best way to get a more realistic idea of the actual bounce rate for a page? (I don't want people who spend a minute or two on a page and scroll more than halfway through the page to be considered a bounce.)
I got this set up and working. My installation of wordpress was already calling to jquery so it was an easy setup.
One thing for other people who might try and follow the instructions on the page that linked to.
If you are a total javascrip noob (as I am) then remmeber to put all that code between opening and closing script tags.
(At least, that is what I needed to do).
also, make sure you find out what the name of your content div is (I think mine was something like entity) because you will need to change that in the script if you want to find out how many people scrolled to the bottom of your content even if they don't make it all the way to the bottom of your page.
