Some great stats there Andrew, which will no doubt find their way into a few sales pitches.Did Matthew clarify whether the ’25% of all searches end in a purchase’ quote relates to searches where the users is intending to buy or give any additional information as to how they reached this conclusion? The figure seems pretty high to me for ’all searches’.

Sadly not, Matt whisked through the stats at some speed! It was all I could do to write them down!

Interesting read. I’d really like to see a better explanation as to how these numbers were acquired because I find them very hard to believe.
