Keywords in web page body text - on-page optimization.

The hardest part here is that you have to create and organize your body text content to be well optimized for both SE and the page visitors. If you design your site with too many targeted keywords, bolded and underlined without reasonable purpose, this can make your site unreadable and can push the visitors to close their browsers almost immediately.

Closing a page almost a few seconds after a visitor has landed on it is not good behavior called ‘Bounce Rate’. This trigger used by the SE is a factor, which tells them how reliable the content of the page is to the people they have sent to your site from a particular keyword search.
Simply said ‘Bounce rate’ is the number of visits in which a visitor has left your site without changing the landing page. A big ‘Bounce rate’ indicates that the content of a particular landing page is not relevant to the visitor and you should consider changing the text, design, or on-page body text keyword optimization.
Some people interfere ‘Exit page’ with ‘Bounce rate’, but they are rather different. The main distinction is that the ‘Exit page’ factor is the page where your visitor has left your site, but it could be good exit, when it is purchase or ad page, and bad one which is resolving as ‘Bounce rate’.
