When using external page conversion actions, a conversion should be counted when users access the external page. However, Nelio A/B Testing has no access to pages outside WordPress, which means it has to count a conversion when a user clicks on the link that will take the user to that page. Whenever such a click occurs, Nelio A/B Testing will detect it and send the tracking information to Nelio's servers (which takes a few miliseconds).
