First I would log in to your Google Analytics account and look at your stats!

This is kinda a silly question.... Yeah!

Your site has GA - old Urchin but fine as it is, use them.

<script src="http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js" type="text/javascript">
</script>

<script type="text/javascript">
_uacct = "UA-1369976-1";
urchinTracker();

</script>

ounce rate is a very important metric for website owners. It basically tells you what percentage of your visitors are “bouncing” away after landing on your site (e.g., they just visit one page and leave before clicking on to a second page inside your site). A bounce can occur for several reasons, including:

* The visitor hit the “Back” button on his browser.
* The visitor closed his browser.
* The visitor clicked on one of your ads.
* The visitor clicked on one of your external links.
* The visitor used the search box on his browser.
* The visitor typed a new URL on his browser.

All the actions above would cause the visitor to leave your site. Provided he did any of these actions right after arriving at your site (and before clicking on to a second page), it would be counted as a bounce. In fact the formula for finding the bounce rate on your website is:

Bounce rate = Visits that left after one page / Total number of visits

For example, if during a certain month your site received 120,000 visits, out of which 80,000 bounced after visiting just one page, your bounce rate for that month would be 80,000 divided by 120,000, which equals to 0.66 (or 66%). Notice that you can calculate the bounce rate of your whole website or of single pages inside it.

Obviously the lower the bounce rate on your website, the better, because it means that visitors are getting engaged by your content and design, and that they are clicking to visit a second (third and so on) page on your site.

How do you know the exact bounce rate on your site? A web analytics program like Google Analytics will automatically track the numbers for you.

You need to also be able to see what others think. If you go to www.alexa.com for example , you will see the bounce rate as well as a few other bits of information on your site. These metrics are important to analyze and go a long way in helping you tweak the things needed to make your site more efficient. Give it a go and be confident in your abilities.

If you have an information site that people return to on a regular basis, don't be misled by a high bounce rate. For example, I visit theweathernetwork.com every morning. I have the Halifax page bookmarked so I launch the site, view the forecast and then leave

Do you have an account in Google Analytics? If yes, then you can check your website's bounce rate. It is the correct way to know the bounce rate.

One of the most important metrics us bloggers and website owners have to take note of is the bounce rate. It is the percentage of web site visitors who arrive at an entry page on your web site, then leave without visiting any other pages or leave without going any deeper into the site. Bounce rate is typically measured as a percentage.
