How to reduce the Bounce Rate

How to reduce the Bounce Rate


You’ve probably seen bounce rate as one of the stats in your Analytics account. In fact, this is the sole figure that needs to be reduced. The larger the figure, the better rule applies to all other figures such as page views, time on site, and so on.




The bounce rate has no direct impact on your Adsense earnings, but it does have a long-term impact on the growth of your website or blog.




What is a good bounce rate?

Anything less than 50% is desirable, and a bounce rate nearing 20% is magical and will undoubtedly make you a worthwhile blog in the eyes of search engines.

How to decrease your bounce rate?

  • Make your website or blog more engaging by placing related articles in the places where the article ends. Once the reader gets your point by reading your post fully he may click on another article and will go to another page.
  • Use the most popular posts on your pages. It will let your first-time users have a look at what’s popular on your blog. WordPress users can use Popular posts plugin.
  • If still finding it difficult, use lesser ads on your pages. Stuffing your pages with ads creates an annoying experience for users and they may sway away.
  • Use intriguing Titles for your posts. It’s like saying the same things but in a way that creates an urge to read.

For example: “how to increase your RSS subscribers” may be written as “how I increased my RSS subscribers by 400% in 2 weeks”.

  • Reduce the time it takes for your website’s pages to load. If the page takes too long to load, the user may become bored and close the browser. You are not the only content creator on the planet. For him, there are billions of search results. So attempt to reduce it.
    Put a search box at the top of your blog. so that if a user comes to your blog and looks and realizes that this is not what he was searching for, he may search for it.
    Make links between your posts. It entails linking relevant text within your postings to relevant pages.
  • Make sure your meta description and title are not deceptive. Bloggers utilise creative Titles in an attempt to appear artistic, which search engine users may not comprehend. This will bring in deceptive visitors who may leave. Remember that blogging will not get you a Booker Prize. You’re not here to emulate Shakespeare. You’ve come to add useful material to your blog in order to make money. So, keep it simple.

    Assume I’m blogging for Dogs and producing an article about “creating a healthy relationship with your pet.” Who will visit your article if I title it “the art of probing hearts”? Perhaps certain heart sufferers.

The blog is not a newspaper or magazine. In order to get found easily, you must write a Title that clearly engulfs the motive of the post and thus brings visitors who do not bounce.
