    Got a 45% bounce rate on a simple 1 page site. What does this mean and is this good/bad? Never really checked a stat like this

    I read an article once, and it had different average bounce rates for different types of sites.

    Strictly Google for this site.

    Mind linking me to the article or posting the figures here?

    50% is average. I have 23% on my best site. The others are between mid 40's and high 50's.

    50 is actually pretty good considering it's a one page site and they can't click to any other links to extend their time on site

    Perhaps counterintuitively, 50% is the average, so you're fine.

    If your entire site has exactly one page your bounce rate should be very close to 100% ( any drop from 100% would mean your visitors refresh the page).


    bounce rate
    noun

    • the percentage of visitors to a particular website who navigate away from the site after viewing only one page.

    Bounce rate represent the Quality Traffic -- Less than 25% bounce rate would very good, I guess. Mine site has less than 10% though.
