I'm sure that might look good, but to me it should be growing, not going down? Is this just a sign of a bad ecomnomy?

I've just created an amazing solr based search system. Only been running for 4 days, but the data shows users who search converting at 6%, but only 5% of users search. Maybe I need to give this a few weeks to see if overall conversion is going to go up?

Any thoughts and help would be greatful. There are so many people coming to the site. I'd love it to get the conversion up 3% even!
