Netflix delivers fastest internal performance in July

Using new measurements, Gomez notes that it takes a shopper an average of 13.63 seconds to locate a product on a top retail site and place it into a shopping cart. The web retailer turning in the fastest performance was Netflix with 5.13 seconds.

How fast a web shopper can access an e-commerce site is an important factor in gauging the overall performance of a web retailer.

But an equally important measure is internal performance, specifically how long its takes a shopper to use an internal search engine to find the product she is looking for and place the item into a shopping cart. Using a new series of measurements, Gomez Inc. notes that it takes a shopper an average of 13.63 seconds to enter a word or phrase into the site search box on a Top 50 retail site and then move the item into the shopping cart.

In July the web retailer turning in the fastest internal performance was Netflix with 5.13 seconds. Netflix was followed by Overstock (5.88 seconds), Office Depot (6.36 seconds), J.C. Penney (6.54 seconds), Circuit City (6.59 seconds), Newegg (7.12 seconds) Apple (8.1 seconds), Dell (8.62 seconds), Avon (8.69 seconds) and HSN.com (9.39 seconds).

The Top 50 retail sites also are providing consistent internal performance, Gomez says. Internal search engines were available 98.36% of the time in July. Apple had the highest consistency rate at 99.1%.
