What exactly are "user actions" when no custom events are defined?


Hey guys,

I have a standard installation of piwik without custom events or goals defined…

In analysing some output data in excel from actions > pages, I see “user actions after entering here”. At first I assumed that these were clicks on links, but for two things:

  1. pages with 100% bounce rates (short time window) still show 1 “user actions after entering here” - does that mean that scrolling, clicking the back button or browser window close for instance is counted as an action?

  2. in page overlays, it shows that the email link is never clicked on, which I know is no the case.

I’m sorry if this is explained somewhere already, I did try a search and the FAQs but couldn’t it.

Thanks for helping me out.
