link: Increased Bounced rate for target _BlankUpvotes by No One
Currently, I am working on a CMS project aka PostAuthor.com
I currently have out bound links to be set as external and rel=nofollow for SEO sake.
However on the test site I have since setup, which has since taken off very well; I have noticed a very high bounce rate, and an even higher unique visitor count from GA.
This is from the visitor returning to the website to view another page after having clicked an external link.
Do you think the 'articifical' boost in unique viewers would out balance the 'higher than reality' bounce rate?
Thanks for any and all opinions!
