it's on Get Clicky analytics and I think maybe on google analytics too. It's not clicking from one page to another bc that's called "actions"... is it maybe how many times a person goes "back" to a page they've already been on? I guess!?

yea... adsense canceled my account once before to bc I tested a couple of my ads... learned my lesson on that one... what do you mean 12 to 16? Every 16 impressions you had 12 clicks? cause that is a lot.

Anyways, I found out specifically what bounce rate on analytics is. It basically means those that leave via their landing page or don't visit more than one page... another words, the likelihood of them returning is not likely as they left without viewing other pages (probably not interested in the site).

Also I see sometimes a person has bounced off my site that has been there before....I think it might mean they have me bookmarked and just clicked on accident ....Looks like one of those things that is hard to read other than it was a hit and run visit.
