High Bounce Rate:
High Bounce rate depends on what your page is all about if your page requires that user carries out one more click further and they end up striking the backward button.
it is a bad bounce rate because you were looking for one or more activities to take place rather than them fleeing to the homepage and exit
Let’s take, for example – If I have a site that involves buyers to click on a text link after visiting the homepage and the buyers just end up viewing only the homepage without clicking on the text links.
That’s a bounce, and it has altered my conversion. This means one thing, it means that my users did not see the text link, or I did not arrange the text link where they can discover it.
…here is how to lower bounce rates.
1: Engage users in the early section.
Create pages that have good user-friendly interface and design and make sure they present your point or message they desire to experience. What did you promise to give or show your visitors? You should make the purpose clear about what it is and how to get it without beating around the bush.
2: Use of Internal linking.
Internal linking is good for SEO and also good for reducing your bounce rate.
So make sure you link your contents with other articles by hyper-linking texts that carry topic you have talked about on your blog.
