Yes, here is an example of website traffic statistics.
A brief explanation of the chart: This graph illustrates what happens to the website after installing the qrlock.me code.
The green line indicates the start of the experiment. As seen in the graph, the following results are observed on the same day (from top to bottom on the graph):
- There is an increase in overall website traffic and mobile website traffic. Specifically, mobile traffic increases,
and overall traffic increases in conjunction with mobile traffic. Note: The traffic increase will only be achieved if the traffic is redirected back to the same website.
If the traffic is directed to an external website, there will be no changes in the traffic statistics on the website. This is not analogous to pop-up windows,
pop-under windows, or other explicit interventions in the quality structure of traffic.
- The percentage of referral traffic significantly increases (again, only if the traffic is redirected back to the website).
- The bounce rate increases. Yes, this is a negative impact, but it should be noted that in this experiment, we did not attempt to engage with "new" traffic.
We simply opened the same URL on a mobile device, which was not of interest to our users. If the traffic is directed to a different location or
if attempts are made to offer something useful to the user (specifically for mobile devices), the bounce rate may not decrease significantly.
- Lastly, the "time on site" decreases, which is also not ideal, but it is the same situation and explanation as with the bounce rate.
