Pogo-sticking refers only to the latter cause of high bounce rates. Depending on the nature of your website, wikis for example, a high bounce rate may be a sign of success but pogo-sticking is never a good thing.
Common Causes
Targeting terms that are irrelevant or too broad as well as poor website design can greatly contribute to pogo-sticking problems. If your website takes too long to load or has a confusing design searchers may simply give up and move on. Poorly designed landing pages with contradictory or confusing information can discourage searchers and invasive advertisements such as videos or presentations that autoplay on page load can be a great annoyance. Keep your landing pages focused and uncluttered; if you want to rank for more terms you will need to make more landing pages to satisfy those searchers.

Quick Tips:

The best way to prevent pogo-sticking is by getting in the searcher’s head. Not the buyer, the searcher. These are not necessarily the same thing and that is where many websites can run into problems. To maintain good rankings you will want to satisfy the query of everyone who lands on your page even if they are never going to buy your product or service.
Make sure your website looks great and functions well with an intuitive user interface and supports multiple devices. Segment your information for ease of understanding and readability and keep your pages engaging and visually interesting with unique and relevant content.

Internal Pogo-Sticking
Pogo-sticking can also be a problem within websites. While this will not affect your rankings, it can have a negative impact on your prospect’s browsing experience and may cause them to give up before converting.

This diagram demonstrates this type of pogo-sticking. Potential customers who are comparing multiple products are often required to bounce back and forth between category or internal search result pages to individual product pages. For an improved user experience, consider using a next product/previous product function similar to that of photo galleries. Alternatively you can include links to similar products on the page. If your company sells many similar products that are going to be compared often, you can greatly improve user experience by facilitating direct comparisons.
Consumers tend to choose the companies that make shopping easier. Aim to satisfy their needs instead of focusing solely on the sale.
