Getting the occasional rebound

Seth Godin declares:

This is a truth of the Internet: When traffic comes to your site without focused intent, it bounces.

75% of all unfocused visitors leave within three seconds.

Any site, anywhere, anytime. 75% bounce rate within three seconds.

While I have no reason to doubt Mr Godin's numbers, I also don't have much reason to worry, since (1) this site doesn't pay my bills anyway and (2) this means that a quarter of you are hanging around for four seconds or longer.

I wouldn't be surprised to hear that some of you read this entire post in four seconds.

I only got to the part about 75% or something or other. What was the rest about?

Not me. I like to savor your posts.

I'm too old to bounce. Best I can manage is to trip.
