A really good book by Lou Rosenfeld

Search Analytics for Your Site: Conversations with Your Customers is out, and while I've only just started reading it, it's a keeper.

Lou, a long-time pro in search analytics, relates not only the problem, but the solutions as well.

Early in the book, there is a telling anecdote: major relevancy problems can be caused by the omission of a single configuration file; or even a single badly set option.

When you roll out a major new system, have two different sets of eyes check everything!
