would like to understand google's definition of "bounce rate"    If the visitor comes to my site and leaves the lannded page by clicking the link( something like a banner ad, a link to friend's blog so on) on that page before seeing any other pages on my site, is that visit counted as a bounce ?  pls teach me . thanks !
