8 WordPress Plugins to Reduce Bounce Rate of Your Site

Bounce rate is the percentage of visitors who left your site from after viewing just a single page. This user behavior not only decreases your page views but also forces Google to believe that your site is less engaging for the visitors. Ultimately drop in the search ranks and drop in the ad revenues.
In the general case, sites with high bounce rate are likely to generate less revenues as compared to sites with lesser bounce rates.
In this article, I am sharing such WordPress plugins that can help you to reduce bounce rate and increase page views of your WordPress site.
