David Brondstetter commented on CDK Global's blog post Your Dealership's Worst Review
"Considering this particular dealer is an 11 out of 30 on their soon to be gone Google Zagat score, anything helps. I'm not so sure the dealer would be thrilled about putting a screen grab of their poor review in one more place.  (pro tip:…"

David Brondstetter replied to Ralph Paglia's discussion Is It Time For Car Dealers To Provide Customers With Online Review Resources?
"@Ryan. Thanks for your questions. I am not referencing any specific person but obviously the folks at Google feel that way. The folks at Yelp feel that way too. I've talk to other people who feel that way both inside the auto space and out. I…"

"Ralph, For the past few years we at SureCritic have been saying, "own your content or be at the mercy of those who do". If you've read any of my post, you know I have the utmost respect for Google and their model. Google uses data to…"

"@kevin, For sure we've seen it with Google reviews in general. As everyone knows, Google keeps tweaking their algorithm in response to perceived data integrity issues. In fact, we had some historical Google reviews data from April 2012 and use…"

David Brondstetter commented on Brian Pasch's blog post Google Review Policy Clarified and Documented
"I wonder when Google is going to start cracking down on businesses that have outsourced responding to reviews to a 3rd party company. Just a guess that it is inevitable. When Google sees thousands of review responses for thousands of businesses that…"

"interesting thoughts from Mike on this situation:  http://blumenthals.com/blog/2012/07/30/google-local-and-review-issues/ I have also noticed that some reviews have gone missing for some dealers in my area. I am guessing that Mike is probably…"

David Brondstetter commented on Joseph Little's blog post What's all this talk about Klout?
"Joe,   Thanks for the reply. Note that this is all in good fun and most people who know me well will tell you that I love a good debate. So, if you are going to take me literally on the "full time job" comment, then I would ask,…"

David Brondstetter commented on Joseph Little's blog post What's all this talk about Klout?
"I'll caveat the following by saying I may be wrong, but I'm calling BS on the "loan approval" statements. I looked at the screen shot they flashed when making that statement and it looks anything but legit. This is just a prime…"

David Brondstetter commented on Brian Pasch's blog post Business Networking Group Gets Busted For Yelp Review Posting Ring
"Kind of reminds me of groups of known friends and associates tweeting, retweeting and mentioning, etc, etc, each others content just to get each other's Klout score up. Both are just gaming the system. I wonder when Klout's going to tweak…"

Google to target "overoptimization"?

I saw this article on Search Engine Roundtable. It is a short, but interesting read suggesting that google is looking to crack down (yet again) on sites that have been overly optimized. The article suggests a focus on keyword stuffing and unrealistic number of back links. Here is the link to the article: …See More

ADM is a Professional Network, describe YOUR Value Proposition... "Why should anyone do business with you?"
SureCritic was founded on the belief that not all reviews are created equal. We hear the same story time and time again from prospective clients-reviews out there on the web just aren't representative of their Actual customer's experiences.

At SureCritic, our mission is to help businesses tell the true story of their customer's experiences. As a result, our clients benefit from improved credibility and a better online reputation at the same time.

When browsing reviews, look for the "Verified by SureCritic" logo, which has our assurance that this is an actual customer.

Reviews are here to stay. Now, the only real differentiator is believability. Let SureCritic show you how we can help. Contact us at sales@surecritic.com for more information.
What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?
I started my career over 20 years ago with Ford Motor Company in Detroit. Through the years I've worked with OEM's and dealerships alike. I've developed successful programs and services for both using technology and process. I currently focus on helping dealerships and independent repair shops with reputation management and social engagement. I am an automotive "devotee". I love this vertical and am passionate about helping with its continued success.

Responding to Negative Reviews: Take 5,696, 234...

Posted on February 20, 2012 at 6:18pm 0 Comments

I remember when online sales leads were the next big thing. Every article you read was about "How to handle and online lead". It's 2012 and you can replace "online lead" with "Negative Review". Everyone's got a answer and not surprisingly, they are pretty much all the same. 

So, in the interest of adding my 2 cents, I thought I'd post my take on things:…

Posted on February 19, 2012 at 3:00pm 8 Comments

For the occasional good article or two on BI, you need to wade through pages of crap. Here is an article on Business Insider about cheating Yelp, which falls squarely into the category of "crap" whereby the article falls just short of telling businesses to cheat on…
