I have here a chart http://docs.google.com/View?id=dcpssp27_0gpcvjjck
showing how many sales a certain site made over the past few months.
They sell web hosting so it shouldn't be a seasonal type of thing.

Column B is the actual sales, Column C is how many Visits according to
Google Analytics. I made Column D "Sales * 50" so that it's close to
Column C just for comparison purposes. Then the graph is basically C
and D.

It would appear from this that there is virtually no correlation
between C and D.

Of course this is a fairly small sample, but still, it seems surprising, no?

Well one issue also IS return customers--several sales last month were
from return customers... But even so, Jan and Feb don't quite make
