    Yes, Bounce rate affecting your raking on search engine. Because, Google considered the time spent by a visitor on a website as a measure of its importance and relevance. A back button click immediately after landing on your website by a visitor is considered by Google as disinterest for your site and therefore, It counted in bad search result.

    Higher the bounce rate the lower the Visitor interest. "somyasharma" says right, Google use bounce rate as measure and if it goes against you than its must effect your web promotion activities. Add unique quality content, special offers, coupons or anything like that to improve customer retention.

    Sometimes if the page takes too long to load Google considers it as a bounce. We often solve this by optimizing the image or reducing the number of slides.

    Hmm, Matt Cutts said before that it is not, but most of SEOs and Online marketers agrees that Bounce Rate really affects the ranking factor of a website.

    Essentially, when you think like Google, you’re interpreting actions of users on a massive scale. Google has billions of searches every day. With that amount of data it can make certain assumptions about users and websites that you might not believe are even possible. As an example, Google knows that knives are associated with swords. For humans that is an easy conclusion to make, but for a robot that is an incredibly difficult conclusion to make. In the case of Google though, it has seen thousands of web pages with the keyword “knives” and has also seen that many of those web pages also list the keyword “swords”. Ah HA! In the eyes of Google, knives and swords go hand-in-hand!

    Continuing with the “think like Google” theme, imagine a site that Google ranks on the first page of Google for a keyword search. Everyone wants to be on the first page of Google. Now, let’s imagine that this site ranking on the first page of Google gets a lot of traffic, but most of the traffic leaves the site in 5 seconds or less. A reasonable conclusion would be that the site isn’t a very good site because thousands of people click on the site and 95% of those people leave in 5 seconds or less. What could they possibly have gained in 5 seconds or less? Google tracks this and monitors the traffic of a site and how users react to the site. If those users are leaving immediately, Google isn’t going to leave that search result on the first page for long because Google’s goal is to provide the top 10 search results for every possible interpretation of a keyword search.

    How Does Google Measure a Bounce?
    Google doesn’t tell us how they measure a “bounce”. My assumptions are described above, but they are not concrete or perfect. I am constantly reevaluating my theories on the effect of bounce rate. The reason Google doesn’t define a bounce is because if they did tell us what constitutes a “bounce” most hack-job SEOers would trick Google into thinking their site has a 0% bounce rate. This would eventually lead to a bunch of crap websites on the first page of Google – something Google is obviously battling every day.

    Bounce rate happens when people leave your site without spending the amount of time as necessitated by Search engines. There is no definitive answer as to what a high and low bounce rate is as it is dependent on factors such as the nature of the website and how many webpages it contains.

    If people are bouncing off - leaving your site immediately after landing, then there is something wrong in the site load time or the content in it?
    One metric that no webmaster should ignore is Bounce Rate. Try to reduce this by by providing good content - so, your Time on Site metric has good values. Bounce rate indicates if your site's conversion is good or not.

    Bounce rates does not directly help your website in increasing page rank.Because bounce rate just refer to the number of people who leaves the web page of your site without doing any thing.

    As a high bounce rate is considered a measure of your site’s ineffectiveness, you need to improve the content and usability of your sites pages.
