With Google AdWords conversion tracking, you can see how effectively your ad clicks lead to valuable customer activity, such as purchases, phone calls, app downloads, newsletter sign-ups and more. This is a critical action for any eCommerce site to ensure that your tracking is installed correctly before you spend any budget on marketing.

Now that you see that it is important to track your conversions, you can view a detailed guide on how to set up tracking for a website here
Top Tip: Track multiple kinds of conversions
If you want to track multiple kinds of conversions then you can set up a different conversion action for each type of conversion you want to track. For example, you can set up one conversion action to track purchases on your website, and another to track calls from your ads.
You can also set up multiple conversion actions for each conversion source. For example, say you want to track two different actions on your website: purchases and newsletter sign-ups. You’d set up two conversion actions: one for the purchases and one for sign-ups.
If you’re tracking multiple conversion actions, you might want to use the “Include in ‘Conversions’” setting to choose which conversions to include in your “Conversions” reporting column. Learn more here
