Improving Bounce rate ( off topic )

Checking our site stats today, and to be fair I am quite impressed. For the very reason the sites only been live about 8 weeks. But I notice our bounce rate seems high.

As I am not into analytics wondered if this is something we should fix !

    i think when any link opens in new tab from your page - it causes a bounce. so whenever user chooses to view theme is taken to new window - so this causes a bounce - not sure though

  • Bounce is people not staying on your site. just bouncing off the first page.

    You are offering something specific, people who are search for more general stuff might bounce. Way to improve it is by making your SOE specific, to who are likely to benefit most. More specific keywords.

    grep is your friend.

  • target="_blank" does not cause a bounce. analytics can discern that. They are pretty good at detecting a particular visitor (as much as you can).

    grep is your friend.
