I added Google Analytics to my site (http://www.timeoftheheathen.com). It appears the the statistics it generates vary a lot based upon site design. My landing page is also the page with the most content. Most people get to it and then leave after scanning the content. They don't appear to click many other links, because there aren't many. So I get a high "bounce" rate. This doesn't mean my site rejects viewers, it just means that readers do not click around to multiple pages within the site.
The website game that Google Analytics seems to support is, once people come to your site, keeping them there as long as possible and moving them around in multiple site pages.
This isn't my site's design. Is that wrong?
