Good question. PageRank 2.0 is referencing a patent by Google a few years ago on link text analysis and possible applications to the algo.

Hi Tom,

Very interesting conclusions and an interesting interview. I sometimes find site owners aren't even attentive to the kind of bounce they are getting on a site. It's easier to look at stats like unique visitors, page views, etc. But bounce rate is what really tells you whether people are finding what they are looking for on your site.

Thanks Heather. Yes, the bounce rate can be an eye opener especially when compared to a traffic source's conversion rate.
