Increasing Conversions with Google Site Search Solutions

You've optimized SEO, stretched your SEM dollars, and tackled social media and emerging trends head-on. But, are you confident that your website is providing the very best user experience possible? Research shows that 43% of visitors who land on a website go immediately to the search function. If the search functionality is poor, 80% of users will leave the site and click over to a competitor. Yet, many websites still rely on navigation alone. To convert each and every visitor, it's critical to provide the best available on-site search experience.

In this presentation, Nitin Mangtani, Senior Product Manager at Google, will show how Google Site Search and Google Commerce Search can bring fast, relevant search results to your site, helping visitors find the exact information they are looking for. This interactive session will feature live demos, Q&A, and an exciting raffle giveaway of new Google NexusOne phones.
