Exit Rate versus Bounce Rate

bounce rateLet’s say you and a friend decide to see the latest movie. You purchase the tickets and find a good seat. No matter how compelling the story is, at some point you will leave the movie theater. Preferably, this will happen after the credit rolls, but some moviegoers might leave within the first ten minutes. This example might best describe the difference between a bounce rate and an exit rate. Leaving early means that watchers bounce out too early when the cinema would prefer that they exit after the show is done.

You can have a great webpage with warm traffic directed by SEO. However, there is no guarantee that people will see the whole thing. Your goal in creating the page for your business is to convert traffic into sales. If traffic glances at your home or landing page, this means you have a high bounce rate. There are a few things to consider when you want to improve your analytics.

  1. Make sure your website is user-friendly.

Are the colors garish and the content in an odd format? Design flow can turn off viewers. Make sure your site is as user-friendly as possible.

  1. Your content should add value.

Nothing is more annoying than being pitched to in an aggressive manner. Tone down the hard sell tactics. To make your browsers respond, make the content relevant to them. Give them an e-Book or really anything that makes it seem as if you are an expert in your field and they are in the know. It is always about them, not you.

  1. Select the best keywords

Keyword selection is the touchstone of SEO. If you chose keywords that do not represent your product or service, they you will not be trusted. People come to your website with expectations and if they are not met, they will consider you spam.

You want viewers to go through all your pages. For example, if you have three pages, then you want the analytics to show that viewers left on the third page rather than the first page. Review your resources and study your numbers to improve your rates. Always have a CTA on your landing page to ensure smooth conversions.
