    Hi guys,

    What do you think is considered a good bounce rate for a blog?

    Is around 60% good, bad or average?

    Thanks

    60% is bad. A bounce rate on all my autosites (the ones that being populated with content on autopilot) is lower than 20%.

    I'm on 20% bounce rate. But I'm in porn so I consider this as good. You might check why people are leaving from your home page.

    60% bounce rate it's really bad! now depends on your subject blog too. So if your in sales or branded the bounce rate should be 30%, for financing and parts is 50% and for rental is 60%. Ofcourse, the metrics depends to site to site.

    Bounce rate for your blog is 60%, this means that 60% of the people who come to your website leave after only viewing the page they entered on, whether it was your homepage or an internal page ?
