  1. Awesome

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

    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by hi 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 improving your rankings naturally.
    There is very useful wordpress plugin which can help you.
    Just search in google for:
