Reduce Your Site Bounce Rate

Author : | Category : SEO | Last Updated :

As a blogger, one of the most frustrating things that we must face is the rate of rejection (Bounce Rate) is too high.

According to the “help of Google Analytics”, the rejection rate is the percentage of unique visits to our blog by leaving the same page where they enter, that is, how many more people out of our blog came from the same page that the higher the rejection rate.

The best way to lower your bounce rate is undoubtedly keep readers in our blog, so I am writing hereΒ  four tips to lower your bounce rate.

1. Related Articles.

One of the easiest and most effective to implement, are the related articles. As a rule, they are placed at the end of each article and show the readers several articles related to the subject of it, ie, we say to our readers “DON’T GO AWAY, BECAUSE WE HAVE MORE ARTICLES ON THIS SUBJECT FOR YOU “.

2. Most popular articles.

Another interesting way to lower our bounce rate is to show readers the most popular articles on our blog.Β  It is up to us to decide the criteria to be assigned to the most popular articles, either by visits, comments, etc..

3. Internal links.

With time and let more and more content and sure have written something related to previous articles, if so, then make links to these articles, they contain additional information to what readers have just read.Β  They can also choose to disclose the most relevant articles of your blog.

4. CommentLuv

To excite our readers to comment, why not use the CommenLuv. This plugin allows readers to leave a link to a blog article of them to comment on our blog. This plugin encourages feedback because we are providing a way for readers also disclose its contents.

You can download the plugin CommentLuv here .


Not only is it important to attract readers to our blog as it is also important to keep them. If our rejection rate is very high, one of the two, or readers are not very fond of our content or navigation of our blog is not very attractive and functional.Β  To combat this use the tips I described above, try several formulas using different plugins, showing alternative content, etc..

  1. Good article. I would like to know is there any good plug-in for internal links in WordPress?

    1. yes, you can use RB Internal Links by Arron Woods.

  2. Hi isha,

    I want guest bloggers for my blog. Can you suggest how I may get guest bloggers?

    1. Offering intresting rewards for guest bloggers may attract many guest blogger to write for your blog.

    2. Hi Rahul, you should consider adding CommentLuv in your blog too, man! πŸ™‚

  3. Good tips. My blog still got high bounce rate =)

  4. As a blog owner, you need to do something in order to maintain your readers hook into your blog. Give them useful contents (like related articles/most popular articles) or offer them benefits (commentluv plugin). In that way, you can be sure that they will not only read your contents, but also be followers of your blog.

  5. I am using all these things and realize that reduction in my bounce rate started .

  6. Hi Isha, it’s my first visit here, I found your blog from Digital Point and came over as I find this topic of interest.

    I agree with your first suggestion, showing visitors related posts to the one they originally came to view is very important. Point three is also a good idea, just as it is with any type of web site. I tend not to agree with you on number two, largely because the most popular posts tend to be early posts and not necesarily the most important ones that you want to put in front of your readers.

    I am still on the fence with CommenLuv, I agree that it can encourage users to interact with your blog, but it can also encourage spam which in turn creates more workload. The other thing with this is that I have a feeling that Google specifically lowers the ranking of blogs which have this plugin installed.

    Another good way to keep your readership on your site is to offer interactions, such as a newsletter sign up, the usual bookmarking options, etc.

    I’ll stick around and read a few more of your posts.

  7. I am using most of methods above but my Bounce Rate is still too high. That’s weird. πŸ˜€

  13. Well… im using few but still thinking to implement commentluv

  14. You can also make sure that the headlines are really good which can get you good clicks

  15. I think Internal Linking Helps reduce the bounce rate of a blog. If user finds content on a website useful he will read other posts as well.

  16. That’s right. Popular post widget also helps a lot. I just saw how many comments these posts received and I started reading this article.

  17. How does bounce rate = rate of rejection? That’s simply a portion of visitors who immediately left your website and yes because of some of the factors you mentioned. It shows something lacking not because they rejected or something.

    1. Hi Kim,

      Bounce rate is what when visitors enters in landing page and moves out from that page without spending time in your post. so, it’s better to engage your visitors to reduce the bounce rate….

  18. Actually, a high bounce rate could be a good thing. It means they found what they are looking for quickly and they clicked your affiliate link or subscribed to your newsletter. It could mean many things, not necessarily bad things.

    1. yes, but it may affect your SEO ranking..

  19. Tried everything except comment luv…. but still i have bounce rate of 55% πŸ™

  20. I have recently started a website, the information you provide on this site has helped me greatly. Thank you for all of your time & work.

  21. My blogsite bounce rate is increasing and I’m really worried….something to do with theme changes I guess!

  22. Great tips Isha, thanks. Targeted traffic is the best element which reduces bounce rate. Quality over quantity does good to bounce rate. People who find you through Google for a particular keyword phrase are far more likely to stay in your blog than those who come from referring sites or from generic keyword search in Google.
