Rather than adding a unique pixel for every page, with the new Facebook pixel, it’s only required to add the single Facebook pixel once, to every converting page of your site.

Custom conversions are perfect for when you’re running a campaign with a website conversions objective, as it allows you to track specific users as they convert on a given web page. This way, you can choose to optimize for conversions, and Facebook will serve your ad to people who are most likely to complete the preferred action on your website. With implementing custom conversions, Facebook has a better ability to determine whether a user who visited your website ended up converting.
