That’s a very interesting stat. Is there a source of that? All I could online is this 2004 comScore tidbit:

“The comScore research studied the buying activity of Internet users who conducted a consumer electronics or computer (CE/C) search at one of the top 25 search engines in Q1 2004. Among the other findings, the study revealed that 25 percent of searchers ultimately purchased a CE/C product and that an estimated 92 percent of these purchases occurred offline. Among the 8 percent of post-search purchases that were made online, the vast majority occurred in subsequent user sessions (not directly after a search click-through).”

I seriously wonder how they manage to come up with those figures, and where.

That seems way to high. I’ll put some more thought to it but initially it just seems like that number is way high. Thanks for the article.

Note also this good/bad news should such tracking systems become commonplace: Higher CPCs due to more accurate ROI measurements…

…as an aside, the next wave of advertising will include a more accurate, simpler-to-use, and reduced click fraud form of PPC advertising where companies are able to bid directly on the traits and characteristics (keytraits) of their most desired customers, instead of just the words we all enter into the search boxes.
