Searches is a good metric for Search Engines, but just as important is actual Visits. User behavior may be that guests enter by search, use the back button to go back to a search engine, refine their search and re-enter the site. This (correctly) shows up as 2 searches, but should only be a single Visit, to allow for an easy look at share of traffic coming from search engines.

This would be very helpful. My users (of SiteCatalyst) are always asking for that and it is not logical in a Marketeer's mind to work with "searches". We calculate most ratios based on Visits. Currently I do some calculations to come to a number that is close to visits but that is complicated and cannot be done in SiteCatalyst, hence iit s not very handy for other users, especially not for the "normal" (not power) users.

I saw the other request, but that specifically mentions prop and eVar reports. Wanted to make sure that those reports based on "out of the box" metrics were not ignored.

You can do this today by just paying for Visits as a conversion metric...

You can also use a custom event as a "visit" metric.  Simply set the event on the first page of a visit.  This custom visit metric will now be available for all conversion reports.  Additionally, you can set one event on the first page of a visit, and a second event on the second page of the visit.  This will allow you to create a calculated bounce-rate metric for conversion reports.
