We all now know what bounce rate is and how it affects our blog. Some days back you might have seen an article with the same topic on how to reduce bounce rate of your blog. At that moment, when I was writing that post I missed out on some points that are also important in reducing your blog’s bounce rate. If you haven’t yet read it, I advice you to first read our first post.
The points I am going to write about are suggested by the readers via comments. Not everyone reads every comment so I thought of converting it into a post and discuss it in detail. I hope you will like it. So here goes Tips to Reduce Bounce Rate :D
Page Load Time
What you do when you open a website and it takes much time to load ?? You close it at once. Right ? So what do you expect from your readers. Will they wait for your blog to open if it is taking much time ? Of course, the answer is no. This is the biggest thing that directly affects your blog’s bounce rate. If your blog’s load time is very much then don’t expect a low bounce rate. You can reduce the load time by many methods. Just Google it and you would get people ready to help you with it. Once your blog’s page load time is less, then you can expect a to Reduce Bounce Rate.
Interlinking your posts
Do you know what interlinking means ?? Hell, yes. You know what interlinking of posts is and you have seen it on many blogs. You can see an example in this very post itself. By interlinking your old posts at appropriate words, you will compel your readers to click on the link and navigate to the other post. Now what else do you want ?? Imagine if you interlink all the posts then the probability of your readers staying glued to your blog for a long time. This is a very good news as your blog’s you will see that you had Reduce Bounce Rate.
This point I wasn’t knowing but found it useful after doing some search. How is it useful in decreasing the bounce rate ? Some of our readers (including me) love to learn something through a video presentation rather that reading a post. You can provide a video in some post to convey your message with more influence. You can easily create videos and upload them on Youtube. Isn’t that easy? Try it, it will work wonders for your blog to Reduce Bounce Rate.
Proper navigation in your blog
Provide proper menu in your blog with links that point to different categories. Try to be clean with whichever method you use on your blog. The ‘Categories’ widget will also help. Don’t avoid such things considering it small because such ‘small’ things will make a big difference in the bounce rate.
I hope that by following and applying the above points to your blog you will see a great difference in your blog’s bounce rate. If still I am missing out on some point then please comment below and let us know about it. Happy Blogging :D
