Let's say that you receive one order for every 120 visitors to your website. Then your site's sell-through is 120:1 (pronounced 120 to 1). Once you know your site's sell-through, you can mathematically predict how many orders you're going to receive based on the amount of traffic coming to your site. For example let's say that your sell-through is 88:1. So if you get 88 visitors per day to your site, you'll get one order, 880 visitors daily will get you 10 orders. And 8,800 visitors will bring in 100 orders.

CONT

"Conversion ratio" is another term for sell-thru. A site that gets 5 orders for every 100 visitors has a conversion ratio of 5%. (in terms of sell-through, this would be 100:5 or 20:1.
