  • 30 minute talk I did today at JBoye Conferences Philadelphia 2010. First couple of slides are just to bring qual & quant together via developing a Complete Audience / User Model. The meat of it is in two sections

    1) Behavioral Metrics - which are what I feel everyone, but especially UX folks should be focusing on. Behavioral Metrics actually capture and show a user's behavior, which is in contrast to site and aggregate metrics (visits, visitors, page views, etc).

    2) Content & Keywords - By understanding Keywords you can apply them and improve your SEO, SEM, content, URLs, metadata, labeling, taxonomy, ontology, site navigation, etc. This is huge and easy to learn and get up to speed to be able to use and will have a MAJOR impact on improving the experiences you design.

    Please leave feedback and &/or drop me an email with any questions. ENJOY!!

  • 19. Behavioral Metric: Bounce Rate
    • What is a “Bounce Rate”
    • I define it as…
    • A user came to your site. Said “this sucks!” * . Left your site.
    • defines it as
    • The percentage of single-page visits or visits in which the person left your site from the entrance (landing) page.

    • Use this metric to measure visit quality - a high bounce rate generally indicates that site entrance pages aren't relevant to your visitors.
