    Seo is important for getting traffic on your website. i have learnt seo from seo institue but found that what i have learnt from there is not enough. They only taught me about off page seo and while surfing on internet i found the term'bounce rate' which i didnt understand.
    What is it? what is its use?

    When Search Engine Optimization technique are applied wrongly like back links are not created at niche website, in this case when customer redirect to the website and they can found different content as they expect then they leave the page suddenly without visit the another page of website these are called as bounce rate.

    Bounce rate refers to the percentage of visitors that quickly exit the page after just browsing one page and stay for only a short time such as 1 second. If your site has high bounce rate, it means that people are not finding anything that can help them in your content and that is why people want to quickly leave the page. So, you should do something such as change the content by adding some values to it to lower the bounce rate and increase the time for visitors to stay on the site.

    Bounce rate mainly depends upon the loading of the page, most visitors doesn't like to wait for a long time and most of them need the answer in a word or words, but not likes to read whole story.
    Bounce rate increases when a user is not interested in your content or they didn't find helpful from it. You should add some related article links in the top paragraph, middle, bottom, so the bounce gradually decreases.

    You have to find out yourself as every blog is a different niche with different style.

    Bounce rate is a bad impression for website, if any visitor comes to your website and they leave your website without spending 8 second, it's count as a bounce rate.
    You can check or monitor your website bounce rate using google analytics, make a google analytics account for your website and paste google analytics code in your web pages.

    @Zirkon Kalti and @bharath have added something useful about bounce rate of a website. For best practices reducing the bounce rate is very important for ranking or earning from a site .If you want to get profit from your site , you must have to make your site most attractive to improve (reduce) bounce rate of the site.

    Bounce rate is very negative factor for website. If any audience or visitors are comes to your website and not make any click on webpage, or not go to any other webpage and they also not spending minimum 8 second on your website, this is count as a bounce rate of your website.

    Generally, people leaving from your sites can be consider as a bounce rate. Every site has bounce rate for some reason. If it is less then it is a good sign, if it is high then you need to rethink for the entire website.
    Bounce rate shows that how traffic is decreasing to your website and you need to work to strike off fire away the moment you have seen this score.

    There are several reason for increasing bounce rate. Bad design of website, Poor content quality, Search Engine optimization technique are not applied properly. If a user open a website and it does not found the content as they wish then they suddenly leave the website, it is called as bounce.

    Bounce rate is not considered as a good thing for your website. For example a customer visited your website in search of something but then he did not visit any other page of your website and left beacuse your website content was irrelevant to what he wanted. Bounce rate impacts the website negatively, it means your website is not useful.

    It represents the percentage of visitors who enter the site and then leave ("bounce") rather than continuing on to view other pages within the same site.

    According to my experience then bounce rate refers to the rate of audiences who leave our site without clicking on other pages in the site. I've heard that normally bounce rate should be around 50%; however, I think it will depend on different type of sites though. For example blog sites tend to need lots of traffic with low bounce rate, frequent traffic is also incredibly helpful. But market/shop sites seem don't strictly need low bounce rate since they tend to attract customers to buy their product as quick as possible.

    Bounce rate is the percentage of visitors to a particular website who navigate away from the site after viewing only one page. It can be reduced by:

    Good content update
    Internal links
    Easy navigation
    Quick loading of webpage

    Bounce rate is the percentage of single page visits. It is the number of visits in which a person leaves your website from the landing page without browsing any further. Google analytics calculates and reports the bounce rate of a web page and bounce rate of a website.

    In some many cases, the bounce rate has much relation with the quality of your content. Then you need to review again almost your articles on the website and find out which exit page that you have a lot of drop traffic, try to optimize some and I think you will get the better rate.

    Good luck to you,

    Bounce Rate is the percentage of users who land on a page and then exit your site. They are always one page visits but they could be on that page for any length of time.
