All About Bounce Rate

What does bounce rate mean?

Bounce rate is the percentage of single-page visits or visits in which the person left your site from the entrance (landing) page. Use this metric to measure visit quality – a high bounce rate generally indicates that site entrance pages aren’t relevant to your visitors. The more compelling your landing pages, the more visitors will stay on your site and convert. http://support.google.com/googleanalytics/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=81986

Bounce rate is the enemy of every website — it’s the percentage of visitors that come to your page and don’t go to any others within the same site. It can be frustrating and costly, especially if you’ve invested time and money into SEO and paid ads to get visitors to your site — you don’t want that hard work to go to waste once the person hits your page. Businesses need to make sure their first impressions reel in the visitor in order to reduce bounce rate and to keep the person engaged with your brand. http://mashable.com/2012/02/02/lower-bounce-rate-tips/
