Pogo-sticking is defined as going back and forth from a search engine results page (SERP) to an individual search result destination site. In other words, pogo-sticking is when the searcher clicks on a link on a SERP, sees that it's not what she is looking for, and immediately bounces off by hitting the back button

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.
