    High bounce rate means the site must be horrible to site visitors and most likely they would never return again. They are not even interested to check other content of the site.

    My website's bounce rate is fluctuating between 40-45%. Use the relevant keywords to your content to decrease your bounce rate.

    Google uses Bounce rate to influence SERP because their job is to send people to websites that satisfied their search query.

    Where are you getting this nonsense from? A high bounce rate could simply mean that the visitor from the search engine found what they are looking for on the page they landed on and left the site after getting what they wanted!!! A high bounce rate could mean your site is fantastic!! A one page site with awesome content will have a bounce rate of 100% as there are no other pages to click on!!!

    The lower the better as people are staying and looking at the content of your site instead of just moving along to the next site. There was a video of a SEO specialist talking about bounce rate as being the most representative analytic. He was also saying that a number to strive for should be 30 to 35%.

    Actually its content that matters a lot and may be your one page content get good listing that the home page itself.

    Sitewide I've managed a 3-6% bounce rate, as I try to deal mainly in traffic from good quality sites that are just like mine. 85% of my traffic is from referring sites, 10k uniques a day. I use large images and thumbnails, people like multimedia. I also saw a drastic drop when I sped up delivery of my pages, a slow loading site will always kill your bounce rate.

    The 7% of traffic I get from search engines bounces at about 8%.

    Interestingly Google sends me very little traffic, so it's obviously not a metric they use to choose who gets the clicks!

    Can some one say if there is a way (recognised) way to check the bounces in home page and individual pages?
