A bounce rate is the number of users that has viewed only a single page of your website for a few seconds and has bounced away. If your bounce rate is high, it means you are not doing something right. You are not getting relevant visitors. The lesser the bounce rate, the better it is.
Google Analytics helps you track your bounce rate with bare ease and comfort.
