Conversion Rate

« Back to Glossary Index

Whether it be purchasing a product, signing up for email newsletters or filling in a contact form, every website has a certain action it wants its visitors to achieve. A successful completion of this action by a visitor is a conversion. The conversion rate (CR) is a key metric that reveals the percentage of a website’s total traffic that is completing a specific goal. The higher the conversion rate, the better.
