					• “In my experience, most sites that have invested time
  and money into site search tend to have a higher
  search to purchase conversion rate than the site-wide
  order conversion rate. Likely because visitors are
  focused on a clearly defined task and, providing you
  have what they’re looking for and present it to them
  quickly, are more likely to be shopping than simply
  browsing. It is also common that when sites first
  deploy search technology that the difference in these
  rates is not as pronounced as it will likely become as
  you refine the relevance controls and presentation of
  your search tool.”
