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.

Why Are Visitors Leaving Your Website?

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. This is why quality content, rather than keyword spamming, is so important. You need the type of site that not just ranks highly, but that offers information and that keeps people on the page.

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.
