My most popular pages have very high exit rates BE CAUSE they got what they looked for, time on page 5-10sec be cause its image related, another site it could be a download,.... not all sites have or need a lot of text
I essentially agree.
It baffles me, as one example, why I would go to a "How To" site where I can tell within seconds it has my answers, why I would study the screen for any length of time. I wouldn't be making notes unless I'm retarded.
I either save the page to a folder or, print it out or, do both. I'm rarely disappointed.
[DISCLAIMER] Excepting for the rubbish results I've been getting in recent months. I suspect I now know why. The result I desire is buried on page 101.
I do this quite a lot of searching like this and I'm usually "in and out" in well under 90 seconds. High BR and High exit rate, to me in this instance, is a total nonsense.
It might well be the highest authority site on that topic on the internet. Now it's probably buried on page 101.
An own goal Google.
