    Hi admin, i found this post on 19 spot in google’s search results.

    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by high bounce rate.

    This is very important ranking factor. One of the biggest reason for
    high bounce rate is due to visitors hitting the back button.
    The higher your bounce rate the further down the
    search results your posts and pages will end up, so having reasonably low bounce rate is
    important for increasing your rankings naturally. There
    is very handy wordpress plugin which can help you. Just search in google for:
