A Lost and Tired Milestone: 1% Bounce Rate (Yay….I Think)

I don’t often find myself excited about too much lately.  I mean, I get excited about the awesome things my kids do, that goes without saying. 

However, recently I’ve managed to get this site down to a 1% Bounce Rate, according to Google Analytics.

That’s actually a pretty big accomplishment, at least I think it is.  I’ve been reading up on bounce rates and most people say that lower is generally better. 

Basically, my understanding is that with a 1% Bounce Rate, 99% of the people visiting Lost and Tired are staying and digging deeper into the site.

Anyway, if I’m understanding this correctly, a 1% Bounce Rate is really good. 

As long as this is a good thing, I’m happy.  If not, than I’m a sad panda.  🙂

As a web developer, I can tell you it’s not good.  It’s amazing.  Anything under 50-60% is considered fantastic.  A “bounce” is someone that comes to your site, reads what they came to read, and leaves.  Doesn’t click any links or anything.  They either close the browser, hit the back button, throw their laptop out the window, etc.  So yeah, basically every single one of your visitors is sticking around.  Keep up the good work!
Also a dad of an HFA little boy.  But hey, we need the little victories when we can take ’em!!


Michael Giaimo thanks.  I really appreciate the information.  You’re right about needing those little victories.


Wow – that is insane – good for you! Quite an accomplishment!
