    If it works then it will be very easy to cheat bounce rate.

    Or if you want a white hat method, use longer pages with multimedia elements

    Probably boosts conversions and overall dwell time too

    The plugin is white hat method and is allowed officially by google.

    I am 3rd day with it, fro 55% bounce rate to (last 3 days) 10-20%

    Bookmarked this thread. This plugin looks good but waiting for someone who has used it to reply.

    Mind sharing an official google link where Big G says its okay to use this technique. I'd love to see it because this would solve lots of problems.

    This looks great.

    Can anyone confirm if its safe to use on money sites?

    This can be a GEM.

    If this doesn't correlate to increased rankings or earnings, then it's a waste of time. Anyone can manipulate the data in their Analytics. You can send thousands of visitors to pump visitor metrics too, but what is your end game? There seems to be a massive assumption here that driving your bounce rate down will affect your rankings, but it's just one small part of a much larger puzzle. Google probably gives more weight to pogo sticking than the bounce rate data. I'm not saying this won't work, but if you aren't correlating this with ranking changes, then you're chasing ghosts.

    I am not here to discuss how important the bounce rate is (everyone can answer this question for themselves).

    I am here to discuss how to lower my bounce rate without any black or gray hat methods.

    Ok then. Mission accomplished. You've successfully manipulated data in your analytics console.

    The mistake though is thinking Google is using your analytics data. They can measure bounce rate in other ways such as return to search results, etc. It makes sense they would do it that way as many people don't use Google analytics on their site.

    The search CTR and associated bounce rate are two of the most weighted metrics AFAIK.

    CTR is Google's data. The mistake that's being made is thinking that your analytics data is what Google uses to calculate the bounce rate.

    Anyways, all I'm suggesting is to correlate your tests work actual performance indicators to make sure it's useful. That's just good SEO.

    I'm not saying this won't work. I'm not saying Google doesn't use this data (although their data sharing options in the analytics admin might suggest it isn't, but I don't remember them off the top of my head). All I'm saying is to test rather than assume.

    With that said, I don't want to Holland this thread. OP, I hope it works and I hope it makes you money.

    The only mistake is that you speak about something that you have no idea how it works... Wait there is another mistake - you don't even care how it works, you don't even read what I post.

    I am not sure why we are speaking if you are not interested in this?

    If 1000 visitors are atm on your site and none of them is moving anything but just reading the text or watching a video your time on site and bounce rate will drop. However, this plugin checks if the visitor is still on the site every 10 seconds and sends information to Google about it. G is smart but not as smart and accurate for some things so we need to communicate with it

    A big conclusion about me from a small data set. You have consistency, I'll give you that.

    I am interested, it's why I clicked on the thread. I just like to see good data. I'll unfollow so I don't distract any further.

    analytics is, I believe, the same algorithms they use for rank. Calculating a bounce rate is a pretty straight forward process. Generally, when we talk about programming SEO bots, we talk about them being able to pass analytics. We can debate the bounce rate worth and I'm not entirely sure of it. The CTR is more difficult to induce and so I focus a lot on that. Its worth is known. Bounce rate is up there too though and if this script passes analytics, I'd say it's a great find. Might want to cloak it though.

    It don't impact on ranking. I used that and later stopped it.
    Everyone will do same like me and I am sure that.
    Why?
    Because it manupulating bounce rate but Google does not count Analytic bounce rate as ranking factors. They use their own code for this and you cannot manupulate that.
    This plugin will give wrong bounce rate and you will not get/understand your real bounce rate.
    And you will realise you need to delete that plugin.
