    Here are few ways that I think can help you to improve bounce rate of your website.

    If you have less content on website, Add most interesting and relevant content that people like to spend time reading.
    If you don't have Blog on your Website, add it.
    If You have corporate website, have some "downloadable content" that people will come and download from your website.
    You can run some Polls where people will spend time to vote,
    You can run Giveaways to improve bounce rate.

    you need to improve the aesthetic of the site (color combination, presentation of information) in order to make it attractive for the visitor. On the other hand, content is most important factor in high bounce rate. The visitor comes to your site but then leaves after finding content less interesting.
    You can improve the presentation of your content by making it a combination of info-graphics.

    Interlinking between pages is best way to cover higher bounce rate. If you are write any post or page then chck another page relate to keywords so interlinke them on your own website its best way

    You've actually got it backwards. To "improve" the bounce rate means to decrease it, not increase it. Other than that, your advice is good. If the content of a website is informative for visitors, they are more likely to stick around.

    Bounce rate depends upon the Website popularity over the web. If your website have the Informative content,Proper navigation,use of good call to action elements then it helps to keep the online visitors on your website.

    The most important is your landing page of the keyword. Make sure what user is trying to search he should land on correct page. You site should be informative for the user with proper design structure and ease navigation.

    1. Set a baseline for a good bounce rate
    2. Lower your bounce rate by improving usability
    3. Switch up site content
    4. Take note of variations between bounce rates
    5. Make your keyword profile more than a chalk outline

    Your page should take no more than about 6 seconds to load if possible. Optimise your images and code, and cut out any clutter.

    Make your website's design attractive and post content which grabs the attention of a visitor to your website. Check the loading time of your website. Do not submit the link on low authority websites, because they show the traffic of your website with 100% bounce rate. Do not use ads on your website if you are a service provider. It shows a bad impression of your website.

    First define what is average bounce rate and than compare. Here is a quick breakdown:

    -Blogs: 70%-90%
    -Lead generation: 30%-50%
    -Retail Sites: 20%-40%

    If you have above any of those than:

    - Get the right customers by:
    --create multiple landing pages with different keyword and content for each visitor
    --add attractive meta description (example: Get quote in 90 sec.)

    -Responsive layouts:
    --try to see how many visitors are coming from different size browsers.

    -Other suggestions:
    --Improve navigation
    --Update images for better ones
    --Writing quality improvements
    --Larger headlines or titles of a product
    --Bigger images of a products
    --bullet lists to make your content more readable
    --loading time (check http://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ )

    Bounce rate is the percentage of visitors to your site that only visit one page on your site then leave. The website design should be effective, the content should be good, enter the effective keywords to increase bounce rate of website.
