    I'm not sure about this one. My blogs have a much higher bounce rate (75% and up) than any of my non-blog websites and I've often seen the bounce rate go higher as the blogs become more successful. I think blogs are more like news sites: people read a single article and they're done. Having more subscribers will definitely raise your bounce rate, but this is not a bad thing--most subscribers will read every post you put out, but few of them will click around on your site--mainly because they've already read everything on it except the newest post!

    Also, a successful blog will get lots of shares on social media: twitter, facebook, stumbleupon. All of these will mostly consist of single views, especially StumbleUpon but the other ones too.

    So a high bounce rate for a blogger is not at all a bad thing.

    I think where a high bounce rate is more of a red flag is for interactive websites where you want users to click around and explore, or for general informational sites like a business's official website.

    True. That is why it would most likely mean that it might be a bad thing. That heavily depends on the situation though.

    Having a high bounce rate and a low % of new visitors along with a low average time spent on the website is obviously a bad sign. This is, of course, if you have a low amounts of traffic.

    Type "Bounce rate" into google. The first hit, which is wikipedia, will tell you everything you need to know and then some. Good luck! Asking questions that take two seconds to answer in google aren't going to establish you as a knowledgeable person on these boards! People may think something like: "How is this guy ever going to figure out how to be a successful webmaster if he can't research a basic question like this on his own?"

    Reserve your questions for ones that legitimately cannot be answered without discussing matters with other, experienced webmasters! =)

    Just make the content more informative & the design should be very attractive. Also create a good navigation panel.

    I think attractive content beside putting links relative to page content to let the visitor drill to more pages in your site

    if you're using a WordPress based website then you can certainly experiment with various themes also you can integrate some YouTube videos related to your niche

    You could have answered the question in a much shorter post. But atleast now he will think about his questions. Having said that, I have some newbie questions about coding.
