    Dear Graham,

    Have u ever read the definition of bounce rate given by the Google itself in Google Analytics?

    As per the Google, "Bounce Rate is the percentage of single-page visits (i.e. visits in which the person left your site from the entrance page without interacting with the page)."

    Lower bounce rate or higher bounce rate has no concern with your ranking but yes, how much time visitor spends on your site or page is matters. If visitor spends adequate time on a page and left the site then it won't consider as bad thing for search engine ranking. Yes, Average session duration and Page/session are two most important factors you should keep in mind while analysing your website performance..
