    Mainly SEO brings targeted traffic to your site. Conversion rates depend on how much targeted traffic you can brings. If it is high then conversion rates also high.

    I think it increases but as an SEO professional for many years I just haven't seen it as a short term solution. It takes a very long time to get to where you have the right kind of SERPs.

    Completely agree. By increasing the traffic, you increase the chance of making a sale.

    Average conversion rate: 1%
    Example One: 100 Visitors - 1 Sale
    Example Two: 1,000 Visitors - 10 Sales
    Example Three: 100,000 Visitors - 1,000 Sales

    Even though actual conversion rates are really around 0.1% - 1% for most markets, the key is really traffic, to some extent.

    Depends on the situation. I've worked with sites that started unranked on Google and turn out #1 in Google in about 35ish days. A lot of outside factors were present, including a low competition keyword, good domain age, and near-perfect on-site SEO, but it was a good selling point for them. High competition keywords, if marketed correctly, usually take around 3-4 months to show significant improvement, and then you have to consider the jump from say #465 -> #65 isn't as impressive as say #22 -> #19, in the grand scheme of things.

    I don't agree. Traffic does not = Conversion Rates. The number of sales increase, but not the actual rate itself.

    Focus on your visitor and what you want him to do. A page selling something should focus on trying to make that sale. That's why it's called a sales page. If you can't convince the visitor to buy from you, your conversion rate is going to be poor. SEO improves the visibility of your product but it does not mean there will be sales.

    I don't care how many visitors you can get with SEO or even PPC or other methods. I'd rather have 100 visitors and making 10 sales than 1,000 and making only 1 sale. It's not about the amount of traffic which is what StarkSEM is saying. It's about getting quality traffic.

    You need a balance. SEO people are generally OK at bringing you traffic. They are not good at selling and neither are web developers and to me, that's more important.

    So my advice is, get a good copywriter to create your sales page. Refine on-page SEO. This should be mostly tags, not the sales message itself or you might destroy what the copywriter did and decrease conversion rates. Give that to a web developer and build the site. Supplement with PPC and other online traffic methods. Learn from these to improve your on-page SEO. Don't forget about off-line methods as well, it's all part of your overall marketing efforts. In this way, you'll maximize quality traffic and maximize ROI.

    There are many factor that affecting the conversion rate.
    the product brand, price, quality delivery term etc play a very important roles, the SEO only generate traffic to your site.
    By the way, the keywords you focusing also affecting the conversion rate

    True. Traffic can help boost sales, but it doesn't affect the rate of conversion.

    On the other hand, good SEO can help the conversion rate. How? By bringing in traffic that is more TARGETED.

    Here is an example. Let's say that you have an online store selling beads to people so that they can make their own beaded jewelry and other items. Instead of trying to specifically attract people looking for particular types of beads, you have focused on the term "beaded jewelry". The result is that you attract a lot of people who are looking to buy jewelry (which you do not sell) instead of the beads that you do sell. The people looking for jewelry are not interested in buying loose beads, wires and clasps, so your conversion rate is very low. If instead, you focused on a particular type of bead, such as glass beads, silver beads or trollbeads, you are much more likely to get people who are interesting in buying what you are selling.

    So, yes, SEO can improve conversions if it is done correctly.

    Conversion rates depend on how much targeted traffic you can bring, but the conversion rate maintains on a stable percentage. 2%-4%.
    SEO can bring the target customers to your website. On the other hand, what you need to do is to make your website more attractive and keep them returning to the website again.

    If your website is properly SEO'd it can increase the traffic of your website which in turn can increase the conversion rate of the website in form of sales. So if you want to improve your sales then you must have to optimize your website according to the search engines to get higher ranking and higher traffic on your website. But the direction of SEO should be right and regularly monitored by an expert.

    To get a high conversion rates, offpage SEO is not enough, a well-designed landing page is the most important.
