A bounce is when a visitor to your site leaves without ever visiting more that the page they arrived at.

So, if you have a high bounce rate it COULD mean that the person found the information they wanted and left.
OR it COULD mean that you had a visit from someone and they thought that you page/site was not relevant and so left without looking any further.

You need to look into which pages they are bouncing from, how they are getting to the page, and what you expected them to do.

After that you need to decide if the bounce rate is reasonable or not.

If not, then you are probably getting the wrong people to your site (bad page titles/descriptions, wrong keywords targetted in PPC or for SEO etc) and you need to decide how you can get the right people to your site.

As mentioned above but one thing I will say is that the bounce rate is not always a bad sign, it can show visitors had found the information they were looking for e.g. contact information.

When more visitors leaves immediately in a webpage and never come back to your website for days. This is for one page session.

To add to the discussion, I just wanted to mention that your bounce rate is now a ranking factor used by Google so minimizing it is important. Click through rate is another of these factors that many people still do not know effect rankings. Lastly, time on page is also considered and this is how they determine if someone left because of relevance or because they found what they are looking for.

It is one of the factor to analyse the web traffic. It is number of visitors visiting your website and leave, rather than visiting other web pages of the same website. It helps to know how effective the home page is. If the entry page is really good then users will visit more pages of your website and complete the Goal. High bounce rate is not that much bad if objective of your website is completed without visiting more than one page.

Bounce Rate means visitor came at your site and just visit your one page of site and not visit your site's other page then he/she leave your site. That is called Bounce Rate.

High bounce rate is one of the factor to know about your visitors visiting your page. I agree Jessica high bounce rate is not always bad if your motto of the business is fulfilling by filling a form or visiting a page or reading an article. But if not then you have to see the prob;em as it is just because dissatisfaction of your visitor visiting the website or any other reason.
