How to Decrease Your Bounce Rate

You’ve heard the term “bounce rate” before, but do you know what it means? Google Analytics defines “bounce rate” as the percentage of single page sessions on your website.

Now that you know what a bounce rate is, do you know how you can decrease your bounce rate? Instead of breaking down the specifics of it in a text blog, I’ve decided to create an infographic that shows you what you need to do.

Here’s how you can decrease your bounce rate:

Conclusion

If you don’t have much time to focus on decreasing your bounce rate, first look to see where you are in comparison to other sites in your space. For example, the infographic above shows that blogs typically have a bounce rate of 70% to 98%, and e-commerce sites have a bounce rate between 20% to 40%.

Once you know where you stand compared to other sites within your space, you can determine if you need to focus on decreasing your bounce rate or not. If you do need to decrease your bounce rate, consider implementing the following elements:

  • More white space to help increase engagement
  • Larger headlines to draw your visitors in
  • Bulleted lists to make your text more readable
  • High contrasting colors to increase usability
  • Faster load times to prevent people from leaving in frustration

How else can you decrease your bounce rate?

 

 

The Surprising Words That Get Content Shared on Social Media

Do you want more social media traffic?

Did you know that the words you use within your content could drastically affect how much social media traffic you get? For example, if you want more Facebook traffic, then using words like “when,” “tell us,” “submit,” “deals,” and “discounts” can help you get more shares, likes and traffic to your site.

On the other hand, if you use the words “contest,” “promotion,” or “coupon” on Facebook, you’ll actually get fewer shares and likes and less traffic.

In order to help you determine what words you should use and what words you should avoid using on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+, I’ve created an infographic that breaks down desirable and undesirable word usage on each of these social media platforms.

Conclusion

You may not believe that changing a word or two can affect social media traffic, but it really can. Just look at sites like Upworthy. They’ve done extremely well because of their titles.

If you are looking for more social media traffic, combine the words you see in the infographic above with the headline ideas within this blog post.

What other words can help you drive more social media traffic?

How Google Search Engine Works

Have you ever wondered how Google works? Sure, it has a complex algorithm that looks at hundreds of variables, but in simple terms…do you know how Google works? To help you get a better understanding of Google’s algorithm as well as to show you how some of Google’s features work, I’ve created an animated infographic to explain the whole process. Click on the image below to see a larger view:

Conclusion

What makes Google so beautiful as a search engine is that although a lot of complex processes are taking place in the background, from a user perspective, it’s simple and easy to use. As a searcher, any time you type something, you get relevant results related to your query. And you get it all in 1/8th of a second. If you are going to learn something from this infographic, it should be two things:

  1. How Google works.
  2. No matter how complicated your product may be on the back end, you need to make sure it’s simple and easy to use from a user perspective. Companies that make things complicated will have a much harder time marketing their products than those who make their ideas simple.

So, what do you think about Google? As a marketer, I love it but mainly because it drives a lot of traffic and revenue to my businesses.

Conclusion

If you aren’t leveraging LinkedIn yet, hopefully the infographic above changes your mind. And if that doesn’t, consider that the highest quality of leads that I generate for NeilPatel.com tend to come from LinkedIn ads.

Three simple ways in which you can get more traffic from LinkedIn are:

  1. When you post images, you’ll notice that you get 98% more comments.
  2. If you link to your YouTube videos from LinkedIn, on average, you’ll generate 75% more shares.
  3. Keep in mind that 60% of your connections on LinkedIn are interested in industry updates, while only 43% are interested in news and products from your company.

So, in what other ways can you leverage LinkedIn?
