1. Improve Your Google Bounce Rate Analytics Accuracy to Identify Thin Content
This is a little tip straight from Google's Analytics Team that can give you a far better idea of what your true bounce rate is. This is an important metric to track, because high bounce rates along with low time on page are used by Google as indicators of low quality content.
To be clear, a bounce is recorded when a visitor comes to your Web page and hits the back button quickly in order to return to the engine and choose a different result. Google wants to serve up the results that are most helpful so if your site is ranking for a search and people are coming to your page only to leave immediately then that's a solid indication that your page doesn't belong there. So, if they see a lot of that happening, they'll rank the page lower for that search term.
