You know what? You work damn hard to get people to your blog.
Pushing yourself to unearth the best ideas, pouring your soul into your writing, and promoting your posts like your next breath depends on it.
So it’s a real kick in the teeth when visitors arrive — then bounce right away again.
In fact, it stings like hell. Because let’s face it, getting rejected always feels worse than just being ignored.
But that’s what a bounce means to a blogger — rejection. It means someone showed up, checked you out, and didn’t like what they found.
Whether you know how many readers are bouncing or not, the signs are obvious. Low traffic, poor engagement, sluggish list growth. These are all the symptoms of a bouncy blog.
Naturally, no blog will be a perfect match for everyone who might wander up to the front porch. But if most people who land on your blog can’t wait to leave again, you have a serious problem, friend.
And while you can’t make your blog bounce-proof, you can at least make it bounce resistant.
But only if you know why people bounce.
So here they are, the reasons people bounce from your blog and never return.
