Bounce rate :

If you don't know what is Bounce rate then definitely you should know about it it and I am going to tell you what is Bounce rate.

Bounce rate is the percentage of the visitor who visited your website and leave instantly without visiting other pages of your website.

Can be calculated

Percentage of visitor who visited your website leaves after reading only one blog post /total number of visitors

Why Bounce rate is high

  • Slow page loading time
  • Too many Advertisement
  • No quality content
  • Annoying pop up

Slow page loading time

Well there are so many websites that I have personally visited and I really feel irritating because of its slow loading speed.

How can you increase the loading speed of your website. There are so many tool available in the internet which can be minified the JavaScript which are installed in your your website. And also you can manually remove all the JavaScript which is unnecessary.

You have to add only those widget which is really essential for your website. Another Singh is you will feel awkward that AdSense code also affect your loading speed of your webpage.

Try to to use only 2-3 image maximum in your website anda try not to use HD quality images or you can use HD quality images but you have to compress that image before uploading that image to your website.

Too many advertisement

Although I already told you that advertisement also obstacle for your website. There is no other way to remove ads as because you depend upon earning which directly came from advertisement.

So I can give you one more solution which can help you that in have to to limit your advertisement like you add 3-4 advertisement per page and every page and not more than that.

Annoying Pop Ads

so whenever you open your website you might have seen that some website contain some popups Windows which display during the time of reading an article.
For example: floating subscription box
                         push notification

What solution it can have?

I am recommending you not to use floating subscription box. You can use push notification because it also gives you more visitor.floating substitution box is not that much important you can manually add this to your website and people will definitely subscribe your your website.
