Few months back when I moved to thesis wordpress theme, my blog bounce rate went down to 17%. That was because of the typography of the theme and my strategy to show related articles. Currently when I checked my bounce rate, it is again back to 68% which is a bad sign. To reduce the bounce rate, I started working on some strategy which I will cover in upcoming posts.
Linkwithin Plugin for BlogSpot & WordPress:
There are many things which you can do on your WordPress blog to reduce bounce rate and one of them is showing the related post. But, just showing related articles won’t help here, as we also need to make sure we get good CTR on it and one time visitor, start browsing more pages from our blog.
Recently, I cam across a 3rd party site which offers showing related post with thumbnail. This is specially great for BlogSpot bloggers, where we don’t have easy to install plugins. Linkwithin is available for WordPress, BlogSpot and this will help you to reduce the bounce rate of your blog.
The plugin is easy to use and install, head over to linkwithin home page and enter your blog url, select platform, download and install the plugin.
Right now I’m using this plugin and will monitor my bounce rate for next 7 days. If it is effective , I will keep it, else
Though I like the concept of this plugin as it will help you to reduce bounce rate of your blog.
