There are definitions for unique visitors, bounce rate, etc. that Piwik needs to comply to. See the full documentation on http://www.webanalyticsassociation.org/attachments/committees/5/WAA_Web_Analytics_Definitions_20080922_For_Public_Comment.pdf

We need to make sure that Piwik definitions comply to these.
We already know that unique visitors over a week/month/year are not correct (see #5428)

  • updating exit_rate calculation to have nb of pages view as the denominator, rather than number of visits. Complies with WAA Page Exit Ratio (ie. Exit rate) proposal.

Referers is actually spelt Referrers. Didn't update all translation keys as it would invalidate all existing translations.

I read the specs and checked that all Piwik metrics comply with the definitions.

I slightly updated the FAQs at http://piwik.org/faq/general/

@mattab mattab added this to the Piwik 0.9.9 - Stable release milestone Jul 8, 2014
