What Does Your Bounce Rate Mean?

bounce rate

When you rank higher in search results, you get more clicks. Ideally, many of those people will stay on your website. Some of them, however, are going to quickly leave and return to the search results page. This is known as "bouncing" and it's a problem because it often signifies that your site did not give them what they were looking for. You ranked well for SEO and for the terms that they were using, but your site did not deliver in some fashion. The percentage of users who quickly leave your page is reported in analytics as your bounce rate. High bounce rates can undercut your efforts and it's important to ask yourself what is going wrong.

Tips for Making a Call to Action Work

call to action

One of the big worries that people have with a call to action is simply that they're going to annoy the reader and actively push them away from making a purchase. In fact, some business owners specifically do not use them on these grounds. They don't want to seem pushy.

Getting traffic to your site is only half of the battle. You also need to keep people on the site, make conversions and make sales.

Maybe you’ve been noticing that people are leaving your site more often than you’d like, and after far less time than you’d prefer. Many of them just land on the page for a second or two before closing it, indicating to you that it did not give them what they were looking for.

Content Your Audience Wants to Read

content for audience

When you start researching content creation, you get a lot of advice to create more content or that the frequency with which you post new content is key. These things are, without a doubt, important parts of your strategy. How you reach your readers and how often you reach them matters. However, do not let this focus push you to overlook yet another key factor: the type of content your readers actually want to read. You need to put out content that engages them and piques their interest. Without that part of the equation, no type of content is going to have the same traction on social media or any other platform.

Why You Need Consistent Content

If you check your Google rankings and you don't like where you're sitting, it's natural to decide that you need more content. First and foremost, you want to provide something fresh and valuable that readers will click on. Beyond that, you want to get more keywords onto the site in an organic way that shows Google how valuable your site is. That's what helps you rank higher.

Do not assume, though, that you just need to buy some content, post it, and figure you have taken care of the problem. That can provide a quick boost, but it's not going to last. SEO is certainly not a one-time job. You need to focus on consistency and increasing the volume of your content over time.
