Google Analytics tells me that 538 visitors came to my blog in July 2015, spending an abysmal 32 seconds here and causing the bounce rate to jump to 77 percent.
January saw 923 visitors and a 7% bounce rate.
Bounce rate is a key metric to determine website health. It measures the percentage of people who visit your website and leave without clicking other pages on your website. In other words, 93% of you visited more than one blog page at the beginning of the year but only 23% of you clicked around last month.
My challenge for August is to decrease the bounce rate to the single digits. This can happen with more frequent posting, more trending topics, and more internal links to inspire more clickability.
Here’s to blogging!
