What is a “bounce rate”?
Wikipedia defines Bounce rate as an Internet marketing term used in web traffic analysis. 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.Image by: ddablogimages
Bounce rates can be used to help determine the effectiveness or performance of an entry page at generating the interest of visitors. An entry page with a low bounce rate means that the page effectively causes visitors to view more pages and continue on deeper into the web site.
While the design of a website is not the only criteria used to determine a website’s success or failure, it rates right up there with loading errors, ease of navigation, relevant content, and a number of other factors.
As marketers we have approximately 3 seconds to get, and hold, our visitors attention. Clean, compelling design goes a long way towards capturing attention so we can get on with the job of providing the reasons that our visitors will choose to deal with us instead of the competition.
