I need to refine the definition a bit. Bounce rate is the percentage of users that visit a site and leave without visiting another page. If you have a lot of content on a page, a user may spend five minutes reading it, but if they to not visit another page, that contributes to a higher bounce rate.

A bounce rate of less than 50% is good. The lower the number, the better.
So bounce rate is really no more important then PR and Alexa right.
For if they leave the page by going to Amazon, or AdSense it would show a high bounce rate right.
They can bounce like crazy if they leave by away I'm earning money. :D
Is their a way of checking the bounce rate of another site?
My guess squidoo and wiki would have a very high bounce rates then. Many, many times have I visited wiki and never clicked on another page on that site for all the info is on one page I am looking for.
That could be a good thing, as long as they are leaving through advertising and not by using the back button. The bounce rate can sometimes be misleading. If you only have a one-page site, then your bounce rate is going to be very high.
higher bounce rate may mean that there are small blogpost in your blog with rich information but then users explore another pages of this blog. meaning, they still leave the page yet visiting another page in same blog.
Not wanting to change the topic here this is on the same lines.
I went to a site that the back button did not work it just reloaded the same page you could go into the site but you could not use the back button if you went to a new page in the site again the same thing would happen.
I had to close the window to leave. Were they using that as a way of getting a lower bounce rate?
All it really did was PMO :mad:
But if G uses the bounce rate in its algo they might be trying to cheat G
Thoughtless, stupid, and a few expletives...
Those marketers that use every trick in the book to keep you on their site.
Defeating the back button of browsers is one trick.
Bounce Rate means the amount of users that land on your "Landing Page" If the user moves to another page, meaning that he is interested your bounce rate goes lower which is good. If the User leaves your website Without moving anywhere it will increase your bounce Rate. And a Bounce rate of 36 % That you have is Excellent. Personally My Bounce rate is around
Fifty five Percent (%) (55%) To Sixty Eight Percent (%) (68%) So that Bounce rate of Yours is really Good.
