In one day my bounce rate went from 1 or 2% to 40%, and it’s been at this really super high rate for four months now.
The only thing I know how to use in order to determine what happened on April 5 is my blog. It was the day that I accidentally hit the reset button for the design features of my former theme. For a month now I have been using another theme and am still experiencing the same bounce rate.
I am trying to figure out why, and I don’t know how.
I am not sure if you ever got an answer to this question, but Google Analyzer says that my bounce rate is 1.13 and Clicky says that it is 49%.. Now that is a BIG difference. Does anyone know the answer to the descrepency.. ?
hmm interesting site you have there, anyway, Do you think visitors see your new theme and think they have made it to the wrong site? I have never owned or worked on a site like that before but since it is a moreof a “niche” item your selling maybe people are getting scared they made it to a different site and don’t trust it? Just my 2 cents sorry if that’s not a help.
When I clicked the “Clicky” link it brought me to your site. If you changed your theme, it can discourage users and make them think they have made it to the wrong site. If you run high traffic sites, you should make design changes very slowly.
