Forget the first pageview, trying to push down bounce rate
Anyone having experience with showing ads only after the first pageview?

On my biggest site I got a really high and steady bounce rate. I know bounce rates can mean many things but I like to get my bounce rate from 70% to maybe 50%.

1 idea to accomplish this is to remove AdSense on the first pageview. Before I got test it my self I would like to know if anyone has experience with this? if yes what where your results on bounce rates and adsense income?

AdSense has nothing to do with bounce rate.

Bounce rate is all about either bad (boring) content or off topic traffic to your content.

That's not exactly all there is to bounce rate.

A page that ranks well and delivers what it promises so there is no need to click through to other pages might well be a one hit wonder.

Event calendar and other information pages are a good example of that.

Well displayed content with more inner links. Like "World of widgets" story with links to "the fabric of widgets", the "difference between red and green widgets" and so on. That will be a great article with complementary info and links to other articles on your own site.

I did this with my sites to increase the exposure of the other pieces of info within the same content. I also do this to expose content of my other sites, I believe it works better than "link exchanges" among sites. If people are really interesing on the content, they will find it useful.

Also, not filling your page with Adsense helps to avoid visitors leaving your site. Ads bring revenue, but they also mean "exits". Depending on the layout a site might appear like a mfa of low quality site and then people leave too.

I meant real bounce rate, like the visitor doesn't stay on the page more than a few seconds.

You're right, if the page delivers well there really isn't a bounce.

True, I have some 'answer' pages. Just a short answer on a question. These pages have really high bounce rates, I understand why, they just got their answer.

It is difficult to interpret bounce rates. The thing in my mind is how Google interpret my bounce rates. The lower bounce rate the better, thats easy to tell a robot, but im curious if they use more sophisticated algo's.

I'll keep my ads on the first pageview. Doing really good last days. Maybe thats another reason for high bouncing. Thnx you guys.
