I must say, the 2 XF foruns where i'm admin/user.... The bounce rate is really really high.
It goes from 70% to 85% in general (80% are search results visitors).
Soo since the major visitors come from search results, I must say when that's the case Xenforo helps alot to the visitor closes the page.
I mean, the user made an search, he finds an topic in our forum, he may find what we want or not, but in both cases, he is not invited and there's nothing for that visitor keeps exploring the site, Soo it will just close the site.
I guess we all hate that, then, what ideias do you have for keep the visitors exploring the site?
Mine ideia it's just something like related topics after first post, if the user finds or not what he's looking for, in related topics it would find what he wants! And then, some kind of banner to invite the user to join the community.
And by the way, what's your bounce rate?
