Crucial ways for you to get rid of bounce rate

– Look at your page loading time

One of the first reasons that increase your bounce rate is page loading time. When users visit your site and it doesn’t load within 2-3 seconds, after getting frustrating they eventually leave it. It shows a bad user experience. According to Google, a website should load within 3 seconds, taking time more than that will make a bad impression on on-site visitors. Not only page loading time is crucial for desktops, but also on mobile devices because the majority of people access sites through mobile devices. Try to use the PageSpeed Insights tool to check the time your website takes in loading on mobile as well on desktop.

– Use responsive website design

A website design is very important for any user whether he is opening your site on a mobile device, laptop, or desktop. If your website design isn’t responsive and doesn’t get open then it will create a bad impression of the overall site. Of course, if the site doesn’t open, nothing is visible, what users will get to see on your site. So, try to get a friendly template that can easily open on both mobile devices as well as on desktops.

– Produce engaging and informative content

You remember famous adage ‘content is king.’

Content has been king in the market since the starting of the online marketing era. Why do people search anything on Google? Obviously, just to get relevant information or results they’re looking for, right. If your content fulfils their demand then what else they need (?) Now suppose, you are creating content for the sake of posting, right and not producing for providing information to users. How can you expect users to stick to your irrelevant or poor content for long? No one will waste time on reading such inauthentic content, neither you. Therefore, don’t do that otherwise you’ll get to see an increased bounce rate on your site.

– Include live chat help or chatbot

Do you want people to stay on your site for long? Of course, yes. If people spend more time on your site, they’ll likely have queries related to your product or services you sell. Isn’t it? And when they have queries they will likely solve it. To solve queries, they’ll want to connect you. Now suppose, if you aren’t available to solve their queries or questions they have, you’ll surely lose customer base, why to happen this situation? Make sure you add a live chat feature so that users easily connect you and thereby you get rid of the bounce rate.
