Upload & Sell: On
a high bounce rate on a blog site isn't that big of a deal to me. If it is common for your clients to share a link, they will likely leave after viewing their friend's post. Break it down further by "source" to see what traffic type is causing the most bounces. That will at least be a good starting point.
Thanks for your help! Sadly, google analytics does not break down sources very well :-(. I have bounce rate, but no exit rate... meaning, like you say, friends/guests/etc might be viewing a post, 'enjoying', sharing, commenting, but not venturing beyond that page... which is technically a "bounce". For example, my bounce rate for facebook is 50%. Then 75% for mobile facebook . But I do not know if these people are leaving immediately or not. Eitherway, Joe gave me some useful tips so I'll look at implementing them to keep things a little more friends, quicker loading, more stimulating :-)
