What is your bounce rate?
Honestly, I have seldom paid attention to my analytics.I just checked it and saw 74%. Is that bad? It kinds of seems like it:(
I never heard of this before, but found this on Google.
The Bounce Rate is the percentage of bounced visits to your site.
A bounce is calculated as a single-page view or single-event trigger in a session or visit.
The following situations qualify as bounces:
A user clicks on a link deep into your site sent by a friend, reads the information on the page, and closes the browser.
A user comes to your home page, looks around for a minute or two, and immediately leaves.
A user comes directly to a reference page on your site from a web search, leaves the page available in the browser while completing other tasks in other browser windows and the session times out.
So now you and I both know exactly the same on this subject. I hope you get some good answers to this question.
Thank you Poolman. I just realized that number seems to be for my blog. Haha. I read something even more confusing that said a high bounce rate is not always bad. It depends on the content. I guess its complicated!
Heck, I can't even find my bounce rate. Maybe I don't want to know the number........
Mine is around 50 percent. I never really payed attention until you brought it up.

I have a high bounce rate in the eighties and I have read it should be at 50 . Is this true? Can anyone share how they get their bounce rate to the fifties?

My views are picking up nicely but my bounce rates seem pretty high. Any ideas as to how I can fix this problem? I think Google will nail me if I don't!

I was checking my Google Analytics information, and I noticed that hubs I haven't published yet have 0.00% bounce rate. What does that actually mean?

I have hubs within a couple of niches which I don't cover all that much; meaning, I don't have that many hubs in those niches. A good number of those hubs have a high bounce rate. So, I'm considering unpublishing those, putting them somewhere else. However, some of them get a good amount of traffic...

Have something to do with hitting the GO BACK button rather than clicking a link or ad in a HUB?
