  1. To my mind it is really time expensive to analyze the users’ behavior and to fix probable weaknesses of the internal search, but nevertheless the results are far better than most people would say. A website can have the greatest structure—but if its search engine gives completely unordered results, the users will not find what they want and finally give up, anyway.

  2. Great article. I can’t reproduce some of the screens though.
    Screen shot 8 with 59,980 results at the top is an example.
    I can get a ‘dimension:’ with site-search-status as one of the dimensions.
    I can’t seem to find the ‘analyze:’ drop down or the search-term-overview variable.
    Thanks,

  5. I’s a nice and useful way to use Excel for site search analysis, and quite varying from the other methods presented today. I did not believe before that there were so many different techniques for that issue.
