What are exit pages?

The exit page is the last page a visitor consults before leaving your website. Usually, users will leave naturally after checkout or on a particular page made for that purpose like a thank-you page. But you can also track all pages and have a better idea of the customer journey.

Exit page best practices

In order to improve the customer journey on your webpages, here are some of the best practices you should keep in mind while optimizing your website's Exit pages.

Exit page best practices

step 1 icon Don’t put too many pop-ups

You may be tempted to add a lot of pop-ups to showcase new promotions, ask questions, or get your visitors to see something in particular, but these can oftentimes give you a higher exit rate and have a negative impact on your revenue, so make sure not to abuse it.

step 2 icon Checkout optimization

If you have an ecommerce site, you need to make sure people go through your checkout process before leaving, and if you have a high exit rate before the sales are completed, you have some optimization to do. You can do some event tracking, see where customers leave, analyze your website and test some solutions. Are your landing pages or product pages seeing a high exit page rate? You’ll probably want to optimize them too.

step 3 icon Don’t confuse it with bounce rate

Exit pages and bounce rates are two very different things. Bounce rate are for single-page sessions, in other words, your users have seen one page only before leaving. You can have a high bounce rate on a blog for example, but it’s not going to be a high exit rate. Your exit rate happens when a visitors consults multiple pages before leaving, it’s therefore more closely tied to the customer journey.
