    Pretty much every website I have has a bounce rate of 60-75%

    Nothing I do really impacts the bounce rate for the better.

    What experience do you lot have with bounce rate and what helped reduce it?

    Relevancy is obviously the biggest issue, but like I said, nothing I do changes it in the variety of websites I have.

    I get about 40%. I've never tried it, but people have always said embedding a video helps bring the number down a little bit.

    Mine is ~70%... I am planning a huge redesign for my site that will provide users with more links related to what they are currently reading. Maybe this will bring my bounce rate to 30%.

    I took an ecommerce site from about 70% to about 59% by adding a huge menu at the top with graphic icons next to each category representing what that category was.

    It also took my conversion rate from about .4% to about .6%.

    Actually it depends on the keywords i'm found under.

    Example from one of my sites:
    Adsense niche site, with unique quality content, every article is minimum 700 words long with video and image.

    8 of the 20 (major keywords i recieve traffic for) the bounce rate is 0, yes zero.
    The rest of them are not that specific, also to be honest some of them i dont even have material for, the bounce rate is around 50%.

    take this site of mine for example.

    face(hyphen)gamers(dot)com

    For the keyword "Facebook games".

    Over the past month the average boucne rate for this keyword is 63%

    The content on the site changes weekly, sometimes daily, ti includes videos, new facebook games and similar content alla bout Facebook games.

    But the bounce rate never gets below 50%, it will shifts about 10% on a day to day basis. The changes to my content do not seem to affect the bounce rate.

    It puzzles me.

    My main site has 45% on average, but it used by a shocking 80% before I redesigned it.
