My life has been in a bit of a turmoil these past few weeks. I got a job as an ATM mechanic, which was awesome, unfortunately, we had to pick up our family and move to Vancouver, WA. Which as you can imagine is not an easy task.

But enough about me, I’m sure you want something valuable. Google Analytics Bounce Rate has been something I’ve been researching through the google search and Wealthy Affiliate’s Webinars by Jay Neill. Which is very insightful and worth checking out, see my WA review for more information.

What is Bounce Rate?

First off if you don’t have a Google Analytics Account, get it attached to your website. It is very easy and provides you with a free analysis of the traffic going in and out of your website.

Bounce rate, according to google, is the percentage of visitors to a particular website who navigate away from the site after viewing only one page. A high Bounce rate tells you your site is boring or confusing. Perhaps your menus are in the way of reading, anyways this is one rate you want to lower.

How do I lower the bounce rate?

Creating quality content that people want to read increases your bounce rate because they stick around. The way your website is viewed also has a considering factor in how your bounce rate is rated. Most people read from left to right, so if you have menus on the left, your viewers will stop on the menu and get distracted or tired of looking at them.

Your goal when trying to lower the bounce rate is creating ways to keep your visitors on your website and looking at other websites while there. Think to yourself if I was a new visitor to my website how would I view it. Would you keep reading it, is the website pleasing to the eyes and does it make it easy to go through.

Create Quality Content

I can’t stress this enough and neither can google, google will rank your website based on the quality of your content and the quality of the visitors reading your content. You number one goal when creating a website is to produce quality content, content that is useful, helpful and comes from a real person.

Be honest, be yourself and try not to write an essay, this isn’t college. If you recall from the start of this blog, I shared with you an insight in my predicament., thanking you for sticking around as I try to get my families life back into order.  This is real, people want to hear from you and once they come to the conclusion that your real, they will be open to what you know.

Make your website viewer friendly

No one likes a website that blinds the eyes with the advertisement, so if you have an advertisement, keep it to the left so while people read they won’t get distracted. Take my website, for example, simple and easy to read. The easier the better.

  1. Hello Nate,
    Keeping your readers attention up is always important. Engagement is what everybody trying to achieve. Nobody wants a boring site and you also want your visitors to come back. After all you want people to interact with your site. Do you believe internal linking can help with that and lower the bounce rate?
    By the way how is Vancouver?
