    If you have adsense they may track the bounce rate.

    or,

    They may calculate the time it takes for the browser(i mean the user) to move to the next result.(just my guess).

    Because people hit the back button when they bounce in almost all cases.

    There's no other action people will take. No one's going to check their bookmarks if the site they've searched for isn't suitable, nor will they just suddenly know another site to directly type in, so they'll hit back and view the rest of the results.


    Why do newbies post complete bullshit to questions when they don't know the answer just so they'll inflate their post count? You're just polluting the forum with nonsense.

    Aside from what everyone posted here, the toolbars, chrome etc.

    Somebody once told me that google buys data from the hosting companies.
    I am not sure how true that is, but it sounds like it is something they might do.

    It's not any of these things. The sample data would be too small.

    It's the back button. When someone clicks a page in the serps they'll create a database record with some info and a timestamp.

    When someone presses back, they'll re-hit the serps, and google will be checking the referrer, so if someone hits the serps from a non-google.com it'll lookup the id that's passed back in the database, instantly giving them a "time spent on site", by subtracting the initial timestamp from the current timestamp. From there they'll record that information in another database about your site that panda will use later when determining bounce rates.

    You maybe have noticed, when you hit back button, right after the search result you had visited pops up a red link with an option to block all results from the domain you just visited. So Google definitely tracks if somebody has hit the back button.
    P.S. Now, when I hit back button, I don't see that red link anymore, so maybe they have changed something.

    so if they massure it by the back button, there is no point in getting a fake traffic to the site to decresase the bounce rate... only if the fake traffic will come from google serp.. right?

    thanks..

    they only need a small sample of data from toolbar / back buttons etc to get some good statistics, and im guessing at google they have some pretty good statistical mathematicians there to put some algorithm together :)

    Yes, the serps are are their primary method of measuring.

    Instead of thinking about fake traffic, why don't you try and create good content or something useful that the searcher was looking for?

    So many people here look for the hard way of doing things.

    If REAL visitors are bouncing on your page, what difference will fake traffic make? You're not going to make any money, since you don't have any people staying, lol.

    People need to use their brains more, it's really no wonder most aren't making any money. It's not hard, people. Just stick to business fundamentals.

    Get a customer, get them interested, keep them interested and convert them to a lead/sale.

    No bro.

    I have several sites that get zero traffic from google and the serps.
    And they have bounce rate data for them.

    so explain that.

    And how does alexa do it. They use toolbar.

    How do you know they have your sites bounce rate?
    Do you use any Google products on your site? i.e. Adsense, Search Bar, etc?

    Hi bro,

    It's very simple. Google analytics is for our purpose. It's not intended for google. They've all inbuilt methods to track your statistics
