Google Analytics documentation defines that “Bounce rate precisely tells you about the quality and quantity of your website visitors. If a webpage has high bounce rate for particular search term then there is an alarming situation for your website, because it shows that webpage is not relevant to the website visitors and has low quality".
Eventually Google may consider that your webpage either does not offer what the visitors are looking for or the usability of your web page is not good. So it clearly indicates that Google really uses the bounce rate as a ranking factor for your website.
