Bounce Rate Ranking, 3 Way Linking

10+ Year Member

Guys - I have two questions

1) I run a "widget tips" site - lately I have been seeing a good increase in traffic, however, the bounce rate is really high, 100% on most of my pages. This is how i see it tho.. people generally search for "how to's" then they land exactly on the page that matches their query ( makes sense i suppose ) they get their info and take off. It is delivering relevant responses, I just hope that G doesn't look at it like im providing bad content as a lot of my bounce rates ( on my tips pages ) are 100% - what do you think about this? will this affect my ranking?

2) Like I said I have this tips site, well i'm starting a widget directory site, and currently I'm having people link to my tips site but I wanted to give them a link in my directory site, not because i don't want to pass any juice from my links site but just because the directory site is more fitting, thats what its for... anyways.. the link in the directory site wouldn't even pass juice anyways, it would be a link to a redirect page that logs the click through then sends the user to the relevant site. So this is what i'm wondering

a) is google going to penalize me for these 3 way links, even if my outgoing links don't pass juice?

I appreciate your input! Thanks!

Hard to know entirely, but sounds like alot of work to get links when you could just write great content and ask webmasters to link right to you!

Well there is content, the directory will integrate with my widget tips site to provide additional resources per each content section.
