    The first thing I check if my bounce rate suddenly spikes to the roof is my load time. Run your site through PingDom tools if your within 5 seconds it's probably not that, however your goal for load time is less than 2 seconds.

    If your bounce rate has sucked since you launched the site, there is a good chance your either pulling users to your page seeking something completely not relevant to what they are led to believe, or because upon arriving you don't immediately make it clearly exactly what the purpose of your page is.

    In order to provide a diagnostic I'd have to look at the page.

    The main reason for increase in bounce rate is the poor interactivity of your website. If you work on making user experience better with your website, the bounce rate will automatically drop because the users will get what they want and it is enough for them to stay.

    Want to get your website bounce rate to decrease. Just make your website interactive with more engaging content. Dwell time of website must be low because if its more than 3 seconds then customers will switch to other which also leads to higher bounce rate. Get your backlinks from high pa da sites. Promote it on social media, generate more traffic. your website must be platform independent. website must be optimized

    these ways will definitely helps you to decrease bounce rate

    If my bounce rate is 100% but every single person that came to my website converted with a form fill or phone call I would be very pleased.

    Reason for increasing bounce rate is that users are not getting content that they are expecting. Improving content quality will reduce bounce rate. Improving quality of landing page also plays important role in bounce rate.

    A website is like a store. If you have a high bounce rate, it means that prospective customers are leaving your store right after entering your entrance area. They are bouncing off right away. They do not bother to check the other parts of the store. Think of the possible reasons.

    1. Maybe your doors are too slow to open (website speed).
    2. Maybe your store does not really offer what the customers wanted in the first place (website relevance).
    3. Maybe your store does not showcase your products in such a way that they are of high quality (website content).
    4. Maybe your store does not make it easy for them to shop (website user experience).
    5. Maybe your store lacks the appeal to encourage the customers to stay (website aesthetics).
    6. And more...

    So, figure out which of these maybe's (and other possible causes not listed) is true to your website and address that issue. It's really more of a trial and error so adjust then monitor results. If your bounce rate improves, then you might have finally figured it out.

    You're joking, right? While this "may" solve the high bounce rate the take away is too risky. Also, we're not yet sure if that is what's causing the high bounce rate so don't touch the phone number yet
