Indexing and Ranking your website in top of Search Engine Results is not an easy task at all. I am saying this as hard and very difficult because in recent times we can see some search update more than twice in a month. Also recently we faced a major changes in ranking in Search Results due to Search Engine Algorithm Updates. Some of the websites went to top spots and some went back. So it is very much important to update and optimize the website based on the Search Engine Algorithm for better results.

Pogo Sticking Effect

After the recent updates in Search Engine Algorithm, the word that went very popular among the SEO’s & Digital Marketing people were Pogo Sticking Effect. Do you know what it is? normally the users will search using few terms and will enter into a website, if suppose the user is not satisfied with the information provided in the search results, then they will go back to look some other websites listed in the search. So the term used to define the user behavior of going back and forth in the search result is Pogo Sticking Effect.

 Bounce Rate Calculations

Page Level Bounce Rate –  Total Number of Bounces on a Page divided by total number of Entrances on the particular page (Date Range must be same for both the values).

Sitewide Bounce Rate – Total Number of Bounces across all the pages divided by total number of entrances on the website (Date Range must be same for both the values).

Segmented Bounce Rate – Total Number of Bounces across all the pages in the selected Segment divided by the total number of entrances across the pages in selected segment  (Date Range must be same for both the values).

Bounce Rate plays an important role to rank your website in top of search engines. So it is not the ultimate Search Engine Algorithm, it is just the latest update.
