Bounce rate is the percentage of users who land on your website and decide to leave without going to a second page.
A higher bounce rate indicates that you were not able to convince the user to stay and act on your call-to-action (i.e buy your product).
A visitor can bounce from your site by clicking on a link to a different website, clicking the back button to leave your website, closing the open window / tab, typing a new URL, or due to a session time out (caused by web hosting errors).
