    I would say that it does exist but no one knows how much it affects your rankings. If you have a high bounce rate either your site is not engaging or the title and description of the site does not match what your content is.

    I think it depends on the general bounce rate in your keyword.

    For example if you are ranked #1 and the other sites at #2-10 have the same bounce rate more or less, it would be OK.

    Even if your bounce rate is considerably high compared to your competitors I think you will only lose 1-2 spots and wont be punished to page 10 or something
