5 causes of high bounce rates

  • Dani Shaked

Bounce rate is a metric that indicates how many visitors engage with a page on your site after visiting it and how many leave right away. The higher your bounce rate, the more people who leave your site immediately.

    1. The meta title tag and meta description of your page are critical in attracting visitors from search engines to your site. People will click away from your website if the content doesn’t match what the metadata says.
    2. If a website takes more than four seconds to load, you may expect to lose the majority of your visitors. Your page load time should be less than two seconds. A webpage can be slowed down by a variety of factors, including excessively huge images, a slow hosting platform, a large number of images, the use of custom fonts, special JavaScript effects etc.
    3. Visitors may be bouncing because of problems with other websites. It’s possible that a link to your website from another site is misleading or leads to obsolete content. Crawling your website will assist you in identifying obsolete or inappropriate inbound links. If you identify any broken links, ask the site owner to either update or remove the connection to your page so that people don’t leave.
    4. The content on a page should address visitors’ needs and provide answers to their inquiries. To lower bounce rates, you should have the information that visitors are looking for quickly available on the site, thus avoiding banners that push vital material down too far.
    5. The goal of user experience (UX) design is to provide an interface that offers users relevant and interesting experiences. If your website isn’t user-friendly, doesn’t make sense, or is overburdened with information, your visitors may abandon it right away.
