    Hi there guys

    I was interested to see what fellow blackhatters have for a bounce rate on their website. No one obviously has a 0% bounce rate and it all depends on the niche you are in, the type of website you have and so on and on...

    But, throw out your bounce rate % if you don't mind sharing it.

    I just have one money site as of now and the bounce rate is 55% :eek:

    Ouch...88% bounce. That has got to hurt. My site also had a bounce rate in the 75% range to start with. I made a lot of changes after seeing the analytics. The analytics had some pretty cool things like heat maps and pin points to show what people were attracted to. I just put more of that out there and the bounce rate is a much more manageable 55% now.

    If your got a 55% bounce rate, its a safe bet that your site has shitty page load speeds.

    Run a few tests on your site here http://www.webpagetest.org/ to find the issues & fix them.

    Its a false economy using shared hosting as it effects your sales/eCPM because of the increases in bounce rates & also effects your SERPS. On a dedi you can setup a decent cache system & have your site loading directly from the dedi memory & not rendering from the hardrive like most ppl do on shitty shared hosts

    My site has a decent load time. The high bounce is because I do not offer a lot of free information. The 55% I assume are looking for freebies.
