I remember reading a report on a US e-commerce store who initially claimed
800 000 registered members. Following various challenges as to their
definition of 'active' and 'member' the number dropped to 300 000 with
similarly devastating results for their share price...

Sadly I can't remember my source for this, but I seem to recall the article
as being pretty clued up analysis wise.

Anyone have a rough rule-of-thumb guide or meaningful comparison for the
ratio of casual browsers to registered users on a site. I seem to remember
reading that Lastminute had 8 squillion visitors but only Ms Lane Fox's
grandmother once bought a return ticket to Cowes - or something like that.
Seriously (and for the benefit of LM's lawyers...) I need some idea for a
"typical" site (yes,yes, I know ... what does that mean) what a reasonable
conversion ratio would be.
