However I will have to add that bounce rates are gamed by most big sites.If you look for a product, they never make it available on the first page.There will always be a separate page to buy things.
Smaller sites tend to give it away in the landing page.
Bounce rate is a noiy signal and not the perfect one.
I think G is redefining most of the things these days, though they had ignored them in the past for good reasons.Is it because people working on it now are different from those who worked on it earlier?
