I looked at my Google Analytics stats today, and I have an average bouncerate of over 60%.
I am wanting to try to reduce this.
Does anyone know if a script called 'Exitgrabber' is OK with Adwords? It just puts a slide-in window on to the webpage if some moves their mouse away to click the Back button or enter another URL. It doesn't actually bring up a popup window or dialogue box.
I really want to reduce my bouncerate.

No popups, popunders of any kind are allowed.

LucidSW is correct. A slide-in window is the same. If a user would like to navigate away from your site then you are not allowed to interrupt the users decision.

They may exit but come back at a later date, or via the back button.

If you interfere with the user's exit process, you can be guaranteed that they will never come back!

You can, however, have a popup or popunder trigger with a mouse click. So, for example, click here to see the coupon code can have a popup since it's user initiated.
