    Providing great content is a given. But I think what many people forget is internal linking. Make sure you link to other pages on your website. As you write content, you may come up with topic ideas. This allows you to create more posts, which you can bet will be valuable to your readers. Remember that it's much better to use contextual links compared to simply relying on a "relevant posts" widget or sidebar links. And while you're at it, make the anchor text more catchy. In my experience, a longer anchor text yields better results.

    Or redirect them to an other page (coupon, optin, aff link) when they hit back on their browser. Check the plugin under my post count, you will love it ;)

    Depends on your type of your website, but I'd guess something between 40%-80%. Figure out what your main landing page is and change the text to image portfolio or grid layout with many, about 6-8, catchy items to click on. I hereby reduced my bouncig rate from about 65 % to 39 %.

    Make your posts interesting and not too long, embed videos that are related to the topic. If you can add links to other similar posts. Don't use big words and jargon, make posts easy to understand for all readers.

    The easiest way to make your bounce rate great again is to stack overlays...the more you add, the more people will click the x-button...and yes that will greatly reduce your bounce rate. Some sites report bounce rates of lower than 10 percent, can you believe it?

    You can make your website with good quality and informative content. It will make the user engage in your site certain period of time.
    Site loading speed is also one of the important factors for high bounce rate. Check your site loading speed. There are many free tools available to check it. Make sure you are not making your visitors wait for more time to see the page content.

    And really annoy visitors in the process. If you want visitors to trust you, join social media, join list or buy then this won't work
