An interesting thing I have noticed about bounce rates and serps

I have a large corporate site with several high and medium keywords with allinanchor, allintitle, allintext,allinurl all #1. But I have noticed movement in serps when bounce rate on unique ips is higher then 70% on 2 of the pages at first I thought it was because the content isn't a good match for keyword so they get pushed to 6,7 in serps where the rest of the page maintain serps only to move if inanchor changes on competitors. Which would be normal and bounce rates based on match and content should be related.

But after more investigating and content tweaks I noticed most visitors come visit 4 to 7 pages and have 20-30% bounce rate.

But when ever we pass Major Corporation X in the serps we get 70%-80% bounce rate from very Simular ips for one very competitive terms come and visit and bounce on the search terms then with in hours the competitor is back to the top. Coming from very specific regions and countries of that competitor till they are back at top spot.

This only happens with two keywords that major x goes after, over 100 others are un affected

In order to fight this I needed to Block repeat ips the do search and bounce daily or repetitive in you analytics.

With these keywords and serps the reason bounce rates can effect it is many due to there being under 300 visits day for search with low amounts of visits the bounce rate can be affected fast in either direction.



Note: I am not taking about SEO site in my nick which Has never been updated.
Do you have google analytics installed? How would they know your bounce rate?

Most of my visits to Wikipedia are single page visits. Wikipedia could have a high bounce rate, but that doesn't mean there is anything worrying about the site.
I was told that bounce rate is always a questions or irrelevant visitors, or poor content!

But I have to admit that u have a good example here to say Wikipedia.

But, Wikipedia is a info site and it is high authority. So IMO, we can't jsut say certain percent of bounce rate is good or bad. U have the most say on your own site's problem!

I agree with John. I used to get riled up because of bounce. Now I much prefer the "time on page" stat.

I agree with OP. My sudoku site has a high bounce rate. But my visitors do not need to go anywhere but my homepage to play the game. So I have no worry at all for a high bounce rate.

good discussion, remember reality is vast majority of visitors to any site just click and go. They skim information and might return, I always get higher bounce in organic but cpc is quite low. We tried about 10 split tests to improve bounce rates, made a small 10% improvement but still trying to figure it out

I've been tying a few very informative videos to my about pages and have noticed a significant lengthening of time on site increase while bounce rates hovering around 38%.
