    Building an authority site instead of a small niche site. People will be happy to stay on your site if they find you can offer interesting content.

    Try some quality video. People tend to watch videos at least a while.

    those 2 balls of fat make people stay longer.

    But in all seriousness, quality content that they are actually looking for will make them stay longer. Make sure that the traffic that you are targeting is interested in the content that is on your site.

    The best part is to make your site so much attractive and link among the pages inside the site. you have to understand that what people will search for if they are reading this article? Then write another article on that topic and interlink between them.
    that's the best practice. Another way is to link to your photo gallery.

    Quality Content - you don't need to trick anyone to have them stay, just give them what they want. That's some basic marketing.

    You can have 5 articles that are quality,people tend to believe if you have a lot,this will keep them reading,have few good ones that solves problem. And your bounce rate will decrease

    visitor want only update information with full details, if you provide full information that's really helpful for visitor then user return % will be high. if you want visitor stay longer so content must be unique.

    +1 for boobs

    A lame trick might be to use a lightbox popup for a newsletter sub or something. A really annoying tactic, but people will likely take a couple of seconds to close it in order to assess your actual content.

    If you want to be legit though, then create great content and make it inviting to read (good design/layout).

    I've seen background scripts where you can play a Tetris clone or do a maze. Those kept me on the site longer, but I wouldn't necessarily say due to the real content.

    You can always create a Pop Under Ad yourself and use your own website instead of the Ad
