Bounce Rates:Bounce rate is the percentage of visits that go only one page before exiting a site.

Your ideal bounce rate should be somewhere between the perfect bounce rate and a maximum of 20%. Having a 50% bounce rate means that 1 in 2 people are leaving your site without conversions, whereas with a 20% bounce rate, only 1 in 5 people leave your site without fulfilling any form of conversion. You need to stay within the ideal bounce rate to get the maximum conversions from your traffic.10
