    Hi,
    Try to update content for your site and home page seems to be less important for Content probably that might be the reason.

    Analyize your site by watching the visitor behavour of your site. Suppose your visitor is comming with some specific keywords on your site that menas they are looking such information but in your site that information is not available. Secoindly work out on your design in such a way that easy to understand for the normal visitors.

    Problems for having a low bounse rate:

    Create more contents and do internal linking with related articles, visitors will stay longer by reading related articles..Pay attention to content more as Prasseo said.

    Post your website in to relevant forums, directories and submit your article in to different article directories. It will decrease your bounce rate and increase your website traffic.

    The site looks pretty good but the first thing that came to mind when I saw it was food.

    That said, you are going to have to do some split testing and actually speak to an e-commerce consultant about this.

    Stuff like "make your site attractive and meaningful and analyze the behavior" is not going to cut it but unfortunately, it is the extent of the 99% of the responses around here. I would start by reading this so you can weed out folks who don't have any idea what they are talking about http://sixrevisions.com/user-interface/an-introduction-to-website-split-testing/

    hope that helps a bit,
    Nigel

    hi Image Online,

    first of all i would like to take the opportunity to tell you that your website looks great. :)

    the top menu & the image that you have in the center is based on flash. it reduces search engine visibility & also increases the weight of the page. instead you can use css & jquery to develop those parts.

    you should also do a split testing of the home page (landing page).

    your inner-pages looks good but the button which says "Get FREE Consultancy" should be on top but right now it's at the bottom where people will not be able to see.

    your bounce rate will reduce if you can target the proper keywords in your website.

    hope this helps you to reduce the bounce rate in your website. :)

    kindest,
    abhishek kundu

    Your website taking time to get load, this could be the reason of your bounce rate, secondly the header of the Homepage is pretty big. To attract the Users reduce the size of your banner and let the user see either the relevant content or your products. The first glance of a website is everything. So the mantra is attract the user at a first glance and your bounce rate will get reduced.

    You are saying that there should be more content rather than images ?

    To reduce bounce rate you have to do the following things:

    1). your content should be informative & relevant to your keywords in title tags
    2). revise your navigation links
    3). Site structure (put links of your important pages in header & footer)

    I have to agree with the previous posters...

    • Interesting Content
    • Backlinks pointing directly to the most interesting content (check your analytics metrics to see what content this is)
    • Links from one interesting piece of content to another
    • Possible addition of media
    • More targeted traffic funneling

    Good luck!
