A high bounce rate may indicate that users donít find your site compelling, because they come, take a look, and leave directly. Looking at the bounce rates of different pages across your site can help you identify content thatís underperforming and point you to areas of your site that may need work.

Take a look at metrics that correspond directly to meaningful gains for your website or business, rather than just focusing on ranking signals...
So why hasnít as much ink been spilled over relevance as has been over PageRank?... itís easy to graph your PageRank over time and present it to your CEO in five minutes; not so with relevance. ...but just because something is easy to track doesnít mean it accurately represents whatís going on on your website.

Toolbar? Chrome? Bounceback directly to the SERPs? Adsense tracking cookies?
The original algo has changed and Google is moving to social and behavioral ranking factors,
There are other metrics other than PR for measuring success.
We already knew that.
IMO: Remove Google Analytics and Google is "blind" to your bounce rate.
The most famous part of our ranking algorithm is PageRank, an algorithm developed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, who founded Google. PageRank is still in use today, but it is now a part of a much larger system.
