Do you really think bounce rate influences SEO rank? If someone is not using Google analytic, can Google still track their bounce rate?

    Bounce rate has no influence on SEO.

      No. They really cannot track it, and since the majority of websites on the internet are not using Google Analytics, it would be nearly impossible to use it.

      Here is the other thing that people never think about... If a page has a really high bounce rate, does that mean it is a bad webpage? In many cases, no. If I Google how tall the Empire State Building is and click on a page that gives me the answer, just because I do not look at anything else on that site does not mean the page should rank lower. It gave me exactly what I was looking for.

    We've been over this a dozen times.

    Any Google product on a website is obviously tracking traffic data, that includes Google Fonts, Youtube embeds, etc...

    Google Fonts is the default font for Wordpress which is like +20% of the web.

    People leaving Google search, going to a website, and bouncing back is tracked, and it does negatively influence your rankings.

    It doesn't matter if they're using Analytics or not, there's hundreds of ways Google keeps their eyes on people.

    Bounce Rate does not affect to SEO. There is no way to track it and even if it's possible, Bounce Rate doesn't mean a website is not good.

    So don't be afraid if you have high bounce rates, it just only determine the level of engagement of your readers.

      LMAO, why bother?

      With 96% bounce rate on 11K traffic & maybe 1% conversion on the traffic that didn't bounce that's roughly 5 conversions a month. Hope you're selling high end cars or houses.

        Yeah, but people could bounce and also be a conversion. For example, if it is an affiliate site and they click on an affiliate link. Or if you are trying to get phone calls. They might technically be a bounce, but did exactly what you wanted them to do.

        Considering your reply count on this forum i don't think explaining bounce rate to you is necessary. Maybe i don't want people to visit other in-site pages so i have less to none?
        And it's doing pretty decent btw. Not selling high end cars.

    It doesnt matter ... It would spoil the whole game of SEO if it did.
