Having high bounce rate is a headache for every website-owner. If people land on your site and they just close the browser then it is not a good characteristic for your site.
What is Bounce Rate and does it matter?
If I go with dictionary definition of the word Bounce then it means repel. If any object hits another object and then moves back, preferably in the opposite direction then it means that the first object is bouncing from second object. This is what I have explained as per English dictionary.
