rAll of the cars listed on Cars.com did not come from dealers enrolling in Cars.com...the listing sites all share the car data and then pay each otherFor example:Dealer signs with Cars.com, Dealer pays Cars.com a fee, Cars.com downloads dealer's inventory dailyCars.com and other auto sites forward dealer's inventory to Detroit TradingDetroit Trading forwards dealer's inventory to hundreds of third party lead generators and forwards non Cars.com dealer inventory to Cars.comCustomer goes to Cars.com and selects dealer's specific inventory unit...lead sent to dealer but no incremental earnings by Cars.comCars.com then sends customer listing of other cars that Cars.com received from Detroit Trading...each car clicked earns Cars.com $6-$12You could get a daily feed of a million VINs for the Ziegler website if you wanted...just go to: http://www.detroittrading.com/sellers/ …
lf very well when it's not that simple. Dealerships are used to blowing cannons of money at problems, even with littler cannons nowadays, not understanding much beyond that, imho.
That said, the value here in this post is awesome in that it explains fairly well that SEO has moved on. It's an awesome post, well written and insightful and valuable. Thank you, again!
One of the "SEO==Meta" sellers showed me how they got results for a dealership in another market. They had measurable gain and asked me to explain that gain, if SEO was oh-so-much-more-than-that??
I explained it this way: If your competitors in your market are using only page titles/meta with some searchable content, and you use that, too, but better, then you will have results. The minute someone actually USES back links, video, Social Media, micro-sites, etc. they will blow the competion away. I likened it to a footrace competition where folks ran past race cars they were actually allowed to use but didn't know or didn't try--but the first guy to grab a car WILL win the race. Until then, though, that fast runner will still look good . . .…
The Seller has been with the business for many years and would like to sell the business. He has a personal interest in relocating out of state to be closer to family.
