What is Your Bounce Rate? More Personal than How Big is Your “DI*K” (because it matters)
Interesting Case Study. Someone actually took the time to read the Google notes on the words they use such as “Bounce Rate”
“Bounce rate is a measure of visit quality and a high bounce rate generally indicates that site entrance (landing) pages aren’t relevant to your visitors.”
Here is a Google Insider Fawning all over Bounce Rate: WATCH THIS
Now that’s straight from the horses mouth. “Sexiest metric ever…it helps you ask the right questions.” They use this data to see what your competitors bounce rate is, and if you can’t compete you aren’t going to stay long on page 1, even if you have thousands of backlinks and social signals.
A Brief History Lesson
Websites use to be able to survive with 80% bounce rates. This was in early 2000’s. As Google tracked more and more data through adsense codes and analytics a trend began to emerge; any website with a high bounce rate meant the user experience was poor, and the searchers intent did not match up with your webpage/landing page experience. Google’s public shareholders are its “searchers”, and Google must cater to them first and foremost. This is why, fast forward to 2015, and Google uses average time spent on page, number of pageviews, and bounce rate more highly than any other Offpage metric.
CTR (Click Through Rate) – Do Searchers click on your Results in Google?
Even jaded, seo gurus from blackhatworld and other forums are realizing bounce rates and CTR are beginning to matter more than ever from all these Google updates:
An SEO Time machine
SEO is actually easier today, which makes it harder (what a paradox!). ONpage optimizations + high quality content = more engaged visitors; not more throwing links at crappy websites. Even though backlinks and social signals are huge offpage factors for search rankings, they have been usurped by the omnipotent average time spent on page and bounce rate. Think about it, if you were Google would you reward a website with 27% bounce rate, or one with 97% with a weak one page opt-in sales page. Of course…, and that’s why Crowd Search Me is really getting everyone excited, including Super affiliates, web design agencies, resellers, and direct business owners.
As long as Google tracks click through rates, average time spent on page, # of pageviews, exit rate, and bounce rate, they are crowdsourcing their users (searchers) to deliver the best results to other end users. A self-perpetuating loop of efficiency.
