Here's a thread for bounce rates.

What is the bounce rate? It tells you the % of visitors to your site that only visit one page, then leave.

Why is it important? You need a lower bounce rate because that tells you that visitors like your site enough to stick around.

Where do you find it out? Google Analytics and other stats apps will tell you your site's bounce rate.

BTW it would be useful to name your niche. Maybe not the exact niche, but the parent niche (e.g. fashion, dating, weight loss etc.) Bounce rates tend to vary a lot depending on niche as well as buyer intent. You can of course name your sites if you don't care about people knowing what your site's URL is.

Also tell us what type of site you have (blog, membership site, forum, drop-shipping site etc. etc.)

Finally remember to tell us about anything you did that decreased bounce rate!

OK here are my bounce rates:

Niche Laboratory (i.e. this freaking site) - 77%. This is higher than it should be because it is (or was) a single page application. However, this bounce rate is plunging now I've added a membership option and the forum!

My new e-commerce store - 62%. This shows my site is pretty engaging. In fact as I've added more products, the bounce rate has steadily declined. The store's blog has a bounce rate of 82%. - 58%. This is pretty good for a site with a lot of trash content scraped from other peoples' sites!

My highest traffic blog - 80%. This has gone down quite a bit since I added a mobile friendly Wordpress template.

A membership site - 56%. The clear winner here! Learn from this - don't start a blog, start a COMMUNITY.

A forum I started in 2012 - 67%. Again, communities generally have more compelling content than blogs.

My old software business - 85%.

A crappy blog - 88%. Google hates this one, and so do real visitors apparently.

Niche Laboratory Blog - 65%. You can tell I have learnt a lot from my current job in a media company as this blog has much more engaging articles than my previous attempts at blogging.

NicheIdeaOfTheDay - 92%. Again another single page site. It has amazing stats for RETURNING VISITORS though. I'll make a separate thread for sharing these!

Been around since 2009 means you've had so much experience in this space. I'm really considering expanding into promoting products in other niches using paid ads but my limitation is that I don't know how to speak a second language.

I agree with you that low gravity shouldn't be a criterion for selecting products to promote as there are some uncompetitive products with very low gravity. I'll like to add some characteristics of products you shouldn't promote:

1. Clickbank products that have (external) ads on their sales page
2. Products with buy buttons that do not go to the Clickbank order page
3. Products that exaggerate their promises, especially financial promises. Promises like these will lead to high refund rates (most MMO products have refund rates over 20% in fact).
4. Unresponsive vendors. Before starting to promote a product, ALWAYS contact the vendor (ask for a review copy, or ask a question about the product, or just introduce yourself). If you get no reply within 48hours do NOT promote the product.

Recently, I came across a course created by Clickbank's current #1 affiliate that claims to teach people how to drive traffic to Clickbank offers using Facebook Ads. I've seen some good reviews and positive testimonies online about the course. Here's one

What do you think about the course?
