SAAS SEO – Bounce Rate – As discussed in the previous blog which was kind of summary. I will try to explain each and every Topic. In the today Topic which is By far Most Important and almost every SAAS startups need to follow it.
So let’s start with Bounce rate. What is a „Bounce rate“?
Understanding Bounce Rate in SAAS Business
Although it’s subjective and depends on the nature of your business. In general, your site or App should have lower bounce rate. As per the definition from Wikipedia
„Bounce rate is a measure of the effectiveness of a website in encouraging visitors to continue with their visit. It is expressed as a percentage and represents the proportion of visits that end on the first page of the website that the visitor see“
Well, its hard to understand by definition only. SO let’s take a simple example. Suppose You are trying to purchase some items and you don’t know from where you should purchase. Then what is standard steps?
- Search it on google or any search engine. Let’s say search keyword is „Apple iPhone“.
- You will see a couple of websites in search result page ( SERP) and you will open every website.
- Based on specification and pricing customer will purchase the item right?
So where the „bounce rate“ comes in?
Yes, I have ignored one step which is after clicking on those links it is possible that some of the pages take longer time. OR they have different pricing OR they have nonrelevant information.
They might be lot of other reason for the same which we will discuss in details. But One thing is clear that if the desired result is not up to the user expectations then he/she will close the window.
„In this way, your website bounce rate will be increased, Which is not good for your business“
