19 May 2017 10 Ways to Reduce Bounce Rate Navaneetha ⋅ 2 Comments Do people who visit your page stick around on that page or bounce right off the page Ever wondered why What is a Bounce Rate Bounce rate tells you what percentage of people left a certain page on your website without viewing any other pages. A high bounce rate is significant since it indicates that your website visitors aren’t looking for more content on your site or clicking on your Calls-To-ActionCTA or converting into contacts. Basically it would portray that the viewers don’t have a good first impression of the site. It’s not to be confused with exit rates. An Exit Rate is specific to each page it’s the percentage of people who leave after viewing the page. Your exit rate lets you know the last page that users view before they move on. Whereas Bounce Rate is the measure of site’s ‘stickiness’ or number of visitors who leave your website after visiting a single page.

10 Ways to Reduce Bounce Rate 1. Speed Up your Page Load Time People like fast sites. A slow loading time or buffering of a site can destroy your business and discourage potential customers from buying from you or viewing your page. Google has mentioned that ‘Site Speed’ is a ranking factor and a fast site is a good user experience. The slower your landing pages load the higher is the bounce rate of that page. An example would be the shopping websites. In a study it was found that two thirds of UK consumers 67 cite slow loading pages as the main reason why they would abandon an online purchase. A presentation by A l i E x p r e s s claimed they “reduced load time for their pages by 36 and recorded a 10.5 increase in orders and a 27 increase in conversion rates for new customers.” I n s t a g r a m too increased impressions and user profile scroll interactions by simply speeding up their site.

2. Content Matters Make the content readable. Powerful content may evoke a “wow” reaction from your readers but it may not solve their problems. In contrast the right content will not only “wow” them but it’ll also suggest tips and solve their problems. View your site from the customer’s perspective and notice that ‘huge Contents’ or masses of contents scare the readers away. Hence highlight the important keywords or sentences to attract the users to that particular content. Bold keywords must be utilized but care must be taken not to use them many times because that would just ruin it’s purpose. Make sure your content is up to date with absolutely no errors must be present on the page. If a customer notices any error then he would directly bounce off the page. Bullet points and Sub headings must be put to use wherever it’s necessary in order to make the content clear to the customer. Make them participate by asking them certain questions as they read. This would make them feel involved and not make them feel ‘bored’ hence reducing the chances of a high bounce rate. 3. Improve Website’s Design First Impression should always be the best. Enhance the usability of the site by adding better color contrast for the backgrounds adding appropriate images with reference to your content different fonts font style and font color for the headings and subheadings.
