Tracking website traffic and conversion rates are essential for every website owner. It gives you clear insights about how well your website is performing in terms of drawing in more customers.
In today’s post, we’ll briefly explain what conversion is, the importance of conversion tracking specifically for online casino websites, and most importantly, explain the different methods of tracking conversion on your WordPress casino site.
What is Website Conversion?
In general, the term conversion has a broad meaning for websites. Conversion refers to turning visitors into customers, members, or subscribers. So for a casino site, the conversion is a measure of how many visitors register or sign-up on the site. Tracking conversion simply means tracking the number of visitors who turn into registered members.
Online casinos can track conversion based on two parameters:
- The number of visitors who land on the official site (be it directly or through ads, external links, and search engine results) and register to create an account.
- The number of registered members who make their first deposit.

What Is The Importance Of Tracking Conversions?
Website conversion tracking is important to understand your website’s performance. It allows you to make better marketing strategies and decisions. The concept is not that difficult to understand – if you implement a certain marketing strategy or redesign your casino website and see the conversion rates go down, it gives you insights into what went wrong with your strategies. You can use this info to make the necessary changes in your marketing plan in the future. And if conversion rates go up after you implement a particular marketing strategy, that shows that your plan worked well so you can replicate it in the future as well.
Of course, implementing this concept is not as simple as we made it sound but at least it gives you a clear idea of the importance of conversion tracking.
Methods To Track Conversions On Your WordPress Casino Site
The first thing you need to know is that tracking your website conversions is a fairly simple process once you grasp the basics. The actual ‘tracking’ is done by readily available digital tools and software.
On the owner’s part, all they need to do is specify the website or specific webpage for which they want to track the conversions and create a connection between the tracking software/tool and the website or webpage.
The general process of tracking conversions is similar irrespective of the tracking software or tool that you choose. Here’s the process we adopted while tracking conversion for one of roulette-bonussen.nl:
- You decide which webpage you want to track. In casino sites, when someone completes the registration process, they will be greeted with a webpage that notifies the person that their registration is complete. This is the page you want to track to measure your site conversions. Every time a person is redirected to the ‘registration complete’ page, it implies that they have successfully created an account and your casino site has earned a customer.
- *If you want to track conversions in terms of first deposits as well, you will need to choose the webpage that a user is redirected to when they complete their first deposit. *
- Next, you enter the URL of the page you want to track (‘registration complete’ or ‘deposit successful’ page) on the tracking software. It will then generate a unique conversion tracking code.
- Finally, you enter the tracking code in the body section of the script of your casino site’s WordPress theme.
