Something is working

Last Update: March 31, 2015

I just checked my google analytics for my oldest website ( and I had just over 450 visitors this month. WOW! Great job right!

Wrong: My bounce rate is through the roof. Everyone tells me the site looks good, that they are going to try, but no one stays on the site for very long. any suggestions?

Hi Heather. I asked Kyle this in chat and he said:

"Bounce rate is not necessarily a bad thing. It simply means someone is leaving your website and going somewhere else.

If you have affiliate links or promotions on your page, people are "bouncing" there which is actually one of your ideal goals as you earn money when people go through your affiliate links. Do not be too concerned about your bounce rates."

Hope that helps and have a great Wednesday. :)
