    I just came up with a really nifty solution to a problem I've had for months. I'm so proud of it that I'm willing to share it. I get a lot of misdirected Google traffic where the customer takes one glance at their destination page, can't find exactly what they're looking for and they give up. At first I tried to combat this by taking the Google search query from the refering URL and putting it into my search box so all they need to do is click 'Search'. Nobody clicked.

    So now I think I've finally done it! When somebody searches for a product that isn't the primary product on the page, I'll display a little "Is this what you were looking for?" box that lists 3 products that most closely match their Google search string.

    Has anybody tried anything like this? I think it'll definitely help improve conversions and am proud to have done it!

    Scott, gottem patent attorney? Maybe it's time to look into that. It sounds like a very nice idea.

    Now how do I get me one?

    I wouldn't have posted it here if I were worried about somebody stealing my idea. I'd just like to provoke more smart ideas. Too many people are closed mouth about their strategies on this site. Anyway, this is just a small taste of what I'm doing.
