Low bounce rate is good for website.

high bounce rate means visitor not interested and useful site. If bounce rate is low then your site is very good and unquie. so High and low bounce rate is very effective.

low bounce rate is good. if a visitor click your website and exit within a particular seconds,then the bounce rate get increased.

The bounce rate for a website should be as low as possible in order to make the visitors stay in a website for longer.

Have a low bounce rate is good for your website. Low bounce rate means that visitors are visiting other pages too on your website.

Low bounce rate is Good for the website traffic and reputation. if your website have unique content for the user and website is well modified then the user attract to website and wait for some time. if our website UI is not Good then user only comes and goes out this increase the bounce rate of our website.

High bounce rate or low bounce rate?
Bounce Rate is the percentage of single-page sessions (i.e. sessions in which the person left your site from the entrance page without interacting with the page.).

Low and high bounce rate both are the effects of the website's performance in the web especially from the target users.

Sometimes A High Bounce Rate Is Okay. Site metrics, like a bounce rate, should be looked at on a case-by-case basis to determine if, for example, a bounce rate is good or bad.

For example, the bounce rate for an entrance page (an entrance page is any page where people enter the site from some traffic source) may seem like a high percentage. Let’s say it’s over 70 percent, which many people would assume is bad because it means most people are viewing this page and going no further into the website.

However, a web page may do a good enough job of satisfying a searcher’s query without them needing to go further into the site. For example, if someone searches on “How many websites use Google Analytics” they may find this article on Marketing Land and read that “… estimates suggest as many as 30–50 million websites use Google Analytics” and be satisfied with that answer and go no further into the site.

The same is true for most of the other general site metrics like “time on site.” People often think that a higher time on site or large number of pages per visit is always good.

However, people may actually be struggling to find what they are looking for on your site. They can be clicking around the site, adding to the page per visit and time on site numbers when, in fact, a large percentage of these people may eventually get frustrated and leave the site without taking action.

Irrelevant Traffic. Most often, people quote the bounce rate they see in the Audience Overview in their Google Analytics. This is a sitewide bounce rate, the percentage of single-page visits across the site, for all pages and all traffic sources.

However, it’s not unusual for much of the traffic to a website or a specific web page to be irrelevant. So it shouldn’t be a surprise if those visitors leave the page without going further into the site.

For example, we have a client that mentions some of their of key customers on their home page, one of which is General Electric. Lots of people search on phrases including General Electric. Some of these folks see our customer’s home page in the search results and click through to check it out.

Presumably, when they see there’s just a mention of GM as a customer, they leave (or “bounce”) without going further into the site. Few, if any, of these people are potential customers for our client’s highly specialized products, so we shouldn’t expect them to go further into their website.

Focus On Traffic Segments. Instead of worrying about a sitewide bounce rate, it’s best to examine entrance pages for a specific traffic source, or even specific keywords, if you are running AdWords. (Unfortunately, a large percentage of organic keyword traffic is no longer available in Google Analytics.)

You can do this by looking at Traffic Segments in Google Analytics. See About Segments on Google to learn how to use them. Below is a screen shot of a custom Traffic Segment that focuses on one specific keyword.

If bounce rate is low then your site is very good and unquie. so High and low bounce rate is very effective.Here you will see the pages on your website that have received the most pageviews within the last thirty days with their bounce rate. Here you can see that: My blog's homepage bounce rate is a little under 50%. This means at least half of the visitors to my homepage move on to additional posts or pages on my blog.
