Those who’ve been long-time followers of Massively OP’s long-running EverQuesting column might have noticed a distinct lack of new year hopes and predictions articles for the EverQuest franchise along with their end-of year accounting pieces. That’s because there haven’t been any for a couple of years. The last year I did them — 2016 — was the year we lost EverQuest Next and got hit with the announcement for Landmark’s death.

We keep talking about increasing traffic to our website, but two important factors which we often fail to consider are user engagement and user behaviour. In this post-Panda world, factors such as these matter substantially. When a site gets 10,000 hits a day, but all visitors leave the site after visiting only one page, it is not likely a quality site. In today’s post we will be learning what the term “bounce rate” means. The bounce rate of a site is an analytic factor used to determine what actions people are taking after reading your post.
