Conversions do not equal SEO. Search engine optimization is all about your tactics to drive as many eyeballs to your website as possible.
You can think of SEO as opportunities; opportunities to sell your product, share valuable information, build trust with clients, and set up engagement to make sales later on.
Conversions are the next stage in securing sales after your SEO tactics bring users to your website. Conversion rate optimization is a continuous process built on measuring every website metric you can.

You can think of the different stages a customer moves through as a journey. Once you understand your customers’ journeys, you can make better-informed decisions to hook them onto your business.
