I dont buy that whole bounce rate thing, as I have several pages where Google sends me for years the wrong visitors and it had zero effect so far on ranking. One page in particular ranks Nr.1 for one term with 97% bounce rate and time on page is like under 2 seconds, it is unchanged around 500 visits a day.
Its Googles fault, I never optimized this page for anything, its a book review for an old book its written by a professor who was an authority on this subject. This review is cited by universities, newspapers like NY Times, by institutions like Stanford University etc... from the 500 visitors a day 3 to 5 actually look for information on that book, the rest for something else that sounds similar but has a total different meaning;
now again I am wondering; Google sends me for years the wrong visitors and now i should be punished for it?
As I mentioned before, I stopped caring for Google a while ago and do my own thign with my sites as i see fit. The more i tread Google like an unwanted child the more it begs for attention...
