    I too have noticed a high number of Bounce Rate.. I have already tried what it is said, but my rate has not gone down.. :(..

    I guess, the way I write has something to do with it, since most of my visitor would search for a specific thing and land in my page to find it and that is it, I am failing to make them read more :(
