One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
The percentage of visitors to a particular website who navigate away from the site after viewing only one page.‘a rising bounce rate is a sure sign that your homepage is boring or off-putting’
- ‘After all, we've all been told that high bounce rates affect your ranking and all.’
- ‘The Campaign Monitor system provides a great deal of reporting, including bounce rates, unsubscribe tracking, links clicked and number of HTML emails opened (for mail clients without images blocked).’
- ‘Of course, as Todd Friessen pointed out later, high bounce rates will kill you in other ways.’
- ‘The 75 visitors to this page averaged 03:36 mins with a 77% bounce rate.’
- ‘So bounce rate for me is a bit of a headache, but over time with more domain authority and trust, I am sure this will become much less of a problem.’
- ‘So I agree with Dr. Pete, bounce rate is not a great indicator of content on a site - for example, there is no one in my particular field (niche) who has any where near the relevent and original content that I deliver weekly.’
- ‘Given the site's bounce rate, which shows that nearly a third of all visitors leave after only one page view, Carr expected an average number of page views of six or fewer.’
- ‘That blog could be incredibly successful, but by its nature, the bounce rate would be high.’
- ‘I was just speaking with a client and explained that they get 9% higher conversion from Bing and a 11% lower bounce rate.’
- ‘That's why we need other metrics like bounce rate, conversion rate, e-commerce revenue etc. to make a visit worthy of consideration.’
- ‘Pay careful attention to your site's "bounce rate" - the percentage of visitors who leave your site without clicking even one page deeper into it.’
