    Most of my traffic is mobile, I have a responsive theme installed, but my mobile visitors land on homepage or my biggest post and then drop off. I just checked my Analytics and I am quite disappointed.
    My biggest post has 1500 words of information about a topic + a video. I don't understand why they leave the page so fast. Average visitor duration is: 40 sec.

    I am facing this issue and it's quite serious for me.

    How could I keep my visitors engaged on my website?

    My ideas are as follows:
    • redirect mobile users to mobile webpage, example: m.domain.com - where I will make a mobile version of my site.
    • somehow add "related posts" or "popular posts" on my website, although I have this two on my desktop version of the website
    • maybe my content isn't good enough!?

    Any advice is welcomed!

    100 views and no reply. Maybe it's not only my issue, but other webmasters have this issue too.

    Your content might also be too informative on that page, but I'm thinking high bounce rate visitors are either users from social that were thinking your content was something else, uses from organic who notcied your site is MFA or Affiliate based, or finally you bought crappy traffic from a provider who said 100% 1k clicks for $5.

    Either way, I'd install a bounce rate plugin on your site or update your content to match high quality. Sites for mobile users need to draw their interest in less time than that of a pc user because attention span is less and time is perceived as higher value on a phone than a desktop. Think mobile instant access, and you might notice that this brings up fast, easy, on the go, nothing to big or flashy expensive, nothing time consuming, etc. Then target it further down to what type of persons are visiting your site. Repeat visitors? target them and retarget them with content related to what they hovered their mouse over, what pages they stayed on, what sites they came from, etc.

    Thanks for the detailed reply. My visitors come from social media, I didn't buy any traffic. And I also have 20% organic traffic - with them there is no problem.
