Optimize Bounce Rate

When we are creating and positioning our web there are many factors to consider. One of them is to know what visitors want to get into it, seeking or have experience on our website. In this way we will increase the time and number of pages visited thus reducing the bounce rate.

What is the bounce rate?

The bounce rate is the percentage of users who enter the web by visiting only one page, without clicking on other pages. Google understands that the longer and interactions are made on the web, that user will have more interest. He is showing that he liked.

    A high bounce rate can indicate dissatisfaction by the visitor

Usually, a good bounce rate is around 40% -45%, but may of course be differences depending on the web. For good bounce rate must improve the user experience:

It provides quality content and legible

The user experience begins when the content is legible. For that:

  •     Design content easy to read and avoids large paragraphs.
  •     Use subtitles, graphics, images, infographics, videos and quotes from experts.
  •     Structure content points if necessary.
  •     Use bold to highlight the most important concepts.
  •     Do not forget to structure the content with an introduction, body and conclusion of the message.

Write quality content and keep them updated. You think of yourself, when you leave a web? When you find yourself not interested minimally. When writing the content you should be aware that the public normally scans the page without reading it. It is therefore important that you try to catch your attention from the beginning.
