CONVERSION SCREEN In Analytics, a conversion is the completion of an activity on your site that is important to the success of your business. For example: a completed sign up for your email newsletter (a Goal conversion) a purchase (a transaction, sometimes called an Ecommerce conversion) Goal conversions You must define Goals in Google Analytics in order to track Goal conversions. Goal conversions are the primary metric for measuring how well your site fulfills business objectives. A Goal conversion occurs once a visitor completes a desired action on your site, such as a registration or download. You'll be able to see the conversion rates and number of completions for each Goal you set up. If you set a monetary value for each Goal, you'll also see the value of your conversions.
