Measure the bounce rate of your individual traffic sources
Have Clear Navigation
Tamplets with fresh navigation
Setting Internal Benchmarks Is Important

The most important is the content of the site. If the site atrracts people and i gives lots of useful information, the boune rate will be very low.

To reduce bounce rate your landing page should be well optimized and should be good looking from the user point of view and should have clear information about what you are trying to sell.

I am also facing same problem for my couple of sites. Whenever a large number of visitors comes to my site, the site slows a little bit and all of a sudden, all the visitors vanished.

Good quality content is the first thing. I high bounce rate could mean that you are showing up in search results but your content is not very relevant to the search term used. You need to use clear, unambiguous titles, make sure the content relates to the title and also make sure that your meta data relates to your content.

It might help to reduce the c*#$ter on your site perhaps by grouping similar stories into sections.

As a general rule I'd expect the bounce rate on a commercial website such as ours (ursusmedia.co.uk) to be around 30% and on a blog I'd expect it to be nearer 60%. I would expect a site such as yours to be closer to the blog figure because users might arrive at the site having searched one story, read it then leave.

Bounce rate is a word used in web site traffic examination. It fundamentally represents the percentage of first visitors to a site who bounce away to a dissimilar site, rather than carry on on to other pages within the similar site.

A term commonly used to measure visitor engagement is the bounce rate, which is the percentage of initial visitors who leaves your site after arriving at the entry page. These are visitors who ‘bounce away’ after arriving without viewing other pages on your site. You can easily find your site’s bounce rate by using stats tools like Google Analytics.

A low bounce rate means that visitors are exploring your website in greater detail. This can be inferred to mean that they are more engaged with your content. In a recent article, Jakob Nielsen suggested that the bounce rate remains an important metric.

Hello Friends........

Five Ways to Lower Bounce Rate

1.Provide Relevant Content:To reduce bounce rate we should provide Relevant Content

2.Use the Language of your Target Audience :Corporate or industry speak may not always be the same language that your target audience uses or is looking for. For that Use the Language of your Target Audience

3.Have Clear Navigation - if you are lucky enough to have a user find your site through Organic Search, treat them well. Every site page that you makes up your site, should have clear and intuitive navigation to guide the user through their site experience. Capture their interest and guide them with a well interlinked site to assist them in finding all of the information they are looking for.

4.Update Your Content - if you have content that is dated, consider adding some new information. Check your analytics to see which pages have the highest bounce rate and revisit the page copy for these pages.

5.Provide Ample Content - whether in the form of page copy, images, video etc. Be sure to provide sufficient content to your site visitors. If you have a page about green widgets, make sure that you have some information on green widgets.

Thanks

hello,i think there is no hard and fast rule to reduce bounce rate. If there was, all websites would have implemented it. However, there are certain steps that can be tested to see if bounce rate reduces.

Reducing bounce rate is not that an hard thing, you have to just focus on the content. If content will be good there will be more visitors towards your site and slowly your bounce rate will get on decreasing.
