90% of the visitors bounce back from a blog because of the opening visual impact it gives. Bounce rate is the percentage of single-page visits or visits in which the person left your site from the entrance (landing) page.
A high bounce rate generally indicates that site entrance pages aren’t relevant to your visitors i.e. You are giving two different information to your visitors and search engines .
The more compelling your landing pages, the more visitors will stay on your site and convert.
WordPress user has some beautiful plugin to reduce bounce rate from your site. Though there are numerous plugin like Search Term to Tagging, that boast to reduce bounce rate dramatically by adding all the coming search Terms into Tags, but could not appear in this list due to their poor performance or the penalty they attract from the Major search engines like Google, Bing.
search term to tagging which could not make their entry in this list as this plugin automatically insert all incoming search term into your tags and thus abuse this beautiful system that can enhance even your traffic for the time being but can increase your bounce rate a lot.
5 WordPress plugin to increase traffic
Some other most recommended plugin to increase traffic and decrease bounce rates are, according to me are
1. nrelate flyout :
This is the one of the most used plugin by the probloggers like Neil Patel of QuickSprout.com and NYtimes.com. This wordpress plugin bring out a list of recommended articles based on the users current read. Thus give an opportunity to reader to explore more from your site.
The beauty of this plugin is it does not load the script at the beginning , so does not increase the page load time of your website. It only add the script whenever your reader want to read the whole article and display the recommended article at the end.
If You want to monetize your wordpress blog/site, nrelate flyout also have some monetization method, In this case you can add some sponsored ads in the list. All you have to do is –Become their member. ( Screen Shot attached )
They will automatically add their ads in your most recommended article list. Here you have choice where you want to show this ad and number of ads. Extra Ads script is not required like in other ads serving network.
Simple Reach is another such wordpress plugin to show the recommended article for your reader and it has almost same functionality but lesser option and also no advertisement to monetize your blog.
2. CommentLuv :
CommentLuv plugin is widely used by the bloggers to attract readers to leave their link in the comment box.
This plugin now available in two flavours. Simple commentLuv and CommentLuv Premium that cost $99. The values and features it render to its user is unmatched in its class. No-other plugin is there to even compete.
after installing this plugin, do not forget to fine tune it. Though it increase the page load time but the value it adds, if compared then negligible.
3. Mashable Like ShareButton
This is the latest rage in the internet, if you are not a problogger or not using any premium theme or customized theme on your own blog, then I am sure you must have seen this plugin or want a plugin like this on your own blog.
This is a collection of most popular social medias like google+, Facebook, twitter, Linkedin, rss feed subscription etc that really has a beneficial impact on your effort to increase your social impacts.

4. Comment Reply Notification
How do you establish rapport with your readers? Simple Question but a very difficult to answer? There are so many ways to do so, one of them is answer their comments on regular Basis.

Simple solution of this small problem in Comment Reply Notification, this plugin send a simple email to the original commentator a simple email containing his/her comment and the current reply of that comment along with the other details.
A very easy to setup and does not increase page loading time and anything, A must have wordpress plugin for every type of blog.

5. Left Hand Side Floating Sharebar
why I have suggested you only left hand side sharbar, because it has maximum impact on your reader. Most of the time bloggers write wonderful article, place their sharebar either at the top or at the bottom , and even expect reader to go back or forth to share their content on social bookmarking medias.
Do you think they do, I am seriously doubtful? Do You ?
Here goes my another suggestion in this case, Do not add any sharebar from the wordpress plugin repository, Some floating Sharebar add some extra fields in the table, some create new table to hold the information.
Download Sidebar Floating Sharebar
Google Panda and Penguin, the main aim of these algorithm is to provide totally relevant information to your reader. If the reader is not able to find his/her relevant information, he move on to next search page.
Strong content along with these recommended wordpress plugin can hold your readers for a longer time on your site, So which one is your favorite in this list and how many you use to reduce bounce rate of your website/blog. DO not hesitate to share your thoughts with us.
