Bounce rate is a term used in web site traffic  analysis. It essentially represents the percentage of initial visitors to a site who "bounce" away to a different site, rather than continue on to other pages within the same site.

Hello,
Basically a person comes to your site, and leaves without looking at any other pages, it’s considered a bounce.

Hello friends,
Bounce Rate measures the number of people who reach at your site, then left your site after viewing just one page.

I want to add some information.
According to Wikipedia, A bounce occurs when a web site visitor only views a single page on a website, that is, the visitor leaves a site without visiting any other pages before a specified session-timeout occurs. There is no industry-standard minimum or maximum time by which a visitor must leave in order for a bounce to occur. Rather, this is determined by the session timeout of the analytics tracking software.

{R_b} {{=}} \left ( \frac{T_v}{T_e} \right )

Where

    * Rb = Bounce rate
    * Tv = Total number of visits viewing one page only
    * Te = Total entries to page

A visitor can bounce by:

    * Clicking on a link to a page on a different web site
    * Closing an open window or tab
    * Typing a new URL
    * Clicking the "Back" button to leave the site
    * Session timeout

A web page's bounce rate is determined by the percentage of visitors that enter the site via the page and leave without visiting other pages on the site.

Bounce rate is the percentage of single-page visits or visits in which the person left your site from the entrance (landing) page. Use this metric to measure visit quality - a high bounce rate generally indicates that site entrance pages aren't relevant to your visitors. The more compelling your landing pages, the more visitors will stay on your site and convert. You can minimize bounce rates by tailoring landing pages to each keyword and ad that you run. Landing pages should provide the information and services that were promised in the ad copy.

It basically tells you what percentage of your visitors are “bouncing” away after landing on your site.

Bounce rate can be a major source of concern for people using analytics tools like Google Analytics, It is the ratio of single-page visits to your website.
