Bounce rate defines the popularity of your website. It helps to increase your visitor count and the time they spend on your website. Having a low bounce rate increases the popularity of your website which in turn helps to rank your website higher in search engines.

Yes it can affect your SEO ranking. With lots of things changing in internet marketing field, bounce rates are also treated as the ranking factor to some extent. It increases when someone visits your website and exit from the same webpage he landed. That clearly means the visitor found nothing in your website that is what he is looking for. So you have to make sure the landing page says it all about what you deliver.

Yes, its not good, a higher bounce rate show that landing page are not relevant to your visitor. If your web page has a high bounce rate for any particular search term then Google might lower your ranking and devalue your site for that search term.

A lot of marketers said that the higher the bounce rate, the higher the risk of having a decreasing ranking. As we all know if you connect a webmaster tools account to your website, wherein you are embedding a code there, the Googlebot has the chance to identify your bounce rate and that is why it can influence your ranking although Google is not directly saying that bounce rate is considered as their ranking metrics but think it of another way around wherein what is really its purpose? Is it only a guide? Or it has something to do with the rankings?

At the same time the other purpose of presenting this one is that as a web owner we are informed on which pages we will make some improvements. Bounce rate is simply letting us know that the visitor or user did not find the page relevant that is why he is closing the page or left immediately.

As a webmaster, although it is not officially presented that it can affect the rankings or even it is not added as a ranking factor, we still have to make sure that our content are sticky and valuable in this way we don’t have the fear in having a higher bounce rate that can affect rankings.

Bounce rate is a traffic analysis technique.
yes, Bounce rate can affect your SEO ranking because it impacts negatively on the search engine.
it calculates link popularity based on the bounce rate, it is calculated by the time to spend by the users on your site. how much time users spend on your site it decides how many bounce rating would be given to your site.
Bounce rate is a score of your site performance, which helps search engine to give rank.
when any visitor comes to your site then left your site immediately it called negative bounce rate.

Yes if the visitor exit from same page or immediate with out any engagements then its considered as the visitor did not find anything what he desired. If bounce rate increases mean Google consider as you are driving wrong audience or spam and so drop your page ranking.

The Bounce Rate is a percentage that indicates the number of visitors that lands on your website without looking at other pages.

The lower the Bounce Rate, the better it is. For instance, a Bounce Rate of 90% means that 90% of the people visiting your site are not looking at any other pages. This is pretty bad.

As a rule of thumb, a bounce rate in the range of 26 to 40 percent is excellent. 41 to 55 percent is roughly average. 56 to 70 percent is higher than average, but may not be cause for alarm depending on the website. Anything over 70 percent is disappointing for everything outside of blogs, news, events, etc.

OK, let's get the official Google line out of the way. Google's Gary Illyes tweeted the following in 2015: "we don't use analytics/bounce rate in search ranking." Matt Cutts said similar in the past.  But some how too much bounce rate affect your ranking but not that much.

It increments when somebody visits your site and exit from a similar site page he landed. That obviously implies the guest discovered nothing in your site that is the thing that he is searching for. So you need to ensure the presentation page says everything regarding what you convey.

High bounce rate in itself doesn't mean it is a bad site. I would think google looks to see if you continue your search, going back to the google search results and looking at more sites.I really doubt that bounce rate make a different on SERP.

I think that Google doesn't actually calculate bounce rate properly. You can add extra code to your Google Analytics code to fix how bounce rate is calculated. so the 1st step is the bounce rate will decrease when the post is very good and the rest of the posts are very attracted content.

Now as per your concern regarding Google Ranking!

There is still no evidence that Bounce rate affect SEO ranking of a website. 70% bounce rate is not a bad thing. The bounce rate of the website could be reduced by
1. linking your website to related content.
2. High-quality Content
3. Letting the users to Comment
4. More landing pages are also helpful in reducing the Bounce rate.
