Single page website - High Bounce Rate

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

 Hi Everyone!

 

 

One of my clients has a single page website. I drive lots of traffic (clicks) from an adwords campaign but most of the bounce rates seem to be %100, or %99.

 

Do you have any idea what could be the reason for this? 

 

I'd dearly appreciate if anyone could help,

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi,


A bounce is a session with a single engagement hit. If you're sending only pageview hits to Google Analytics and you have a  single page website, it's normal to have 100% bounce rate.

 

Here you can read more about the definition of bounce rate and how it works: https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Google-Analytics-Reports/Bounce-and-Sessions/td-p/599111

Kuidas ikkagi single page lehtedel saab bounce rate'i vähendada? Sest sellest sõltub ju ka page rank.
