If your site get high bounce rate then your site will be rank down. So what is your technique to prevent high bounce rate?

That said, to the best anyone can measure anymore, we rank Top 5 for the 60 key phrases we SEO for, and tons of longtail. I don't think our 45% bounce rate has hurt us at all.

Kevin, do you if bounce rate takes into account the amount of time spent on a page? I found this definition from google, which makes no mention of time:
Bounce rate is 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. The more compelling your landing pages, the more visitors will stay on your site and convert. You can minimize bounce rates by tailoring landing pages to each keyword and ad that you run. Landing pages should provide the information and services that were promised in the ad copy.
Also, if your affiliate links go through a redirect page for click-tracking purposes, will that count as a bounce, since the customer is now leaving from the redirect page instead of the landing page?Your Ad Here.

Actually, the way Page View Duration and Time on Site are currently calculated, they don't even work for bounces. The measure is taken when a visitor clicks on a link and goes deeper. So if they read for 3 minutes, then hit the back button, you get a 0:00 Time on Site.

First i am not agree "If your site get high bounce rate then your site will be rank down." Bounce rate has nothing to do with ranking. My experience is that organic traffic has low bounce rate then referral sites, SO do SEO bring keywords on first page of search engine and drive organic traffic.
