    hey, pogo-sticking doesn't have any use!

    It is just worst than a bounce rate.

    If you don't know what's a bounce rate, here it is:

    bounce rate: when someone clicks on a result on the SERP and then, they don't look at any other page of the website they are landing on.

    pogo sticking: is the same but it happens very fast, the users click on your website and then to another result just after they press the back button to go back to the SERP.

    if people pogo-stick a lot on your site is like sending a signal to Google that your site is not worth to be in that position on the SERP!

    I have explained this more clearly and how to calculate these values on my blog btw!

    Pogo-sticking is defined as going back and forth from a search engine results page (SERP) to an individual search result destination site. In other words, pogo-sticking is when the searcher clicks on a link on a SERP, sees that it's not what she is looking for, and immediately bounces off by hitting the back button

    Pogo sticking means any visitors visited on your website and get return by using back button it is called Pogo sticking. It is more harmful for website than bounce.

    Pogo sticking when the searcher clicks on a link on a SERP, and then realize that it's not what they are looking for then click on back button.

    The term pogo sticking is used in the field of the web to designate the action of a visitor from a web page and click successively on each link of it but always come back to the start page using the button "Back" of the browser. In this way, the user navigates between the pages by making a round trip from the start page.

    In SEO, pogo-sticking is a term that means that a user who comes and goes on a results page of a search engine to open multiple results from the same search. The user returns to the result page if he does not find a relevant result and clicks on another result. And so on until he finds the information he is looking for.

    This means that when the searcher clicks on a link on a SERP, sees that it’s not what he/she is looking for, immediately leaves by hitting the back button.
