    hey guys!

    i have made a website, and it has arround 200+ views daily.

    now the website only has 1 page, and a FAQ and a License agreement. the bounce rate of the website is 60%... i read here that a high bounce rate percentage will drop my SERP's.

    the faq and the la are 2 small links on the bottom of the page so thats why no one clicks on them and thats why the bounce rate is so high.

    does the bounce rate really affect my serps that much? and should i be worried?

    thanks

    No one knows, but there is considerable evidence that bounce rate does indeed affect your rankings. Are you ranking well now? If so, don't worry about it. If not, you may want to consider adding some more pages of content to keep people clicking around on your site.

    However there are many more important factors that determine ranking than bounce rate (ie. backlinks!)

    Also if you are concerned about bounce rate, don't use Google Analytics. There are still other ways they can approximate your bounce rate (eg. Google toolbar data and the click back ratio in the serps), but why make it easy for them?
