Automotive Digital Marketing Resources

There is an abundance of information out there regarding automotive digital marketing. The challenge is in sifting though the high-quality content and the content that is geared strictly towards promoting a vendor's products.

The Automotive Digital Marketing Network is one of the best out there. Ralph has put together one of the strongest networks in the automotive sector, bringing vendors and dealers together to share ideas.

I post here, DrivingSales, DealerElite, and AutomotiveSEO.

Links May Die Someday for SEO, but Not Quite Yet

Posted on October 24, 2014 at 5:40pm 18 Comments

Inbound links still matter. Despite what you may here from SEO gurus around our industry, the power of high-quality, relevant, and natural inbound links to a dealer's website is still apparent. Google's Matt Cutts acknowledged that in the long run, this may not be the case.

That…

The Pursuit of Mediocrity is YOUR Best Friend

Posted on October 15, 2014 at 12:30am 1 Comment

The car business is loaded with lions and gazelles. Some are ferocious, competitive beasts who want nothing but the best and they're willing to do what it takes to acquire it. Others accept what they're given and they're happy to still be alive and thriving after the economic hardship came and…

Less is More in Calls-to-Action on Dealer Websites

Posted on September 28, 2014 at 3:15pm 12 Comments

The past two years has seen a decrease in the number of website leads for many dealers. We're getting more visitors and fewer people filling out lead forms. The trend has caused what I've seen as an increase in the number of calls to action on pages, particularly on inventory pages. This is a…

You Can't Optimize Two Dealers in the Same City with the Same Make

Posted on September 26, 2014 at 6:47pm 9 Comments

I can already hear the vendors scrambling to put together their rebuttals. I'm not going to dwell on the issue, but it's an important one to note.

For most dealers, it's okay to be in the mix. As long as you're on the first page on Google for the major keywords, you're doing just fine. Aggressive…

Thanks J.D.!  Ralph spent a good deal of effort last night on the phone with me getting me reinstated, and from what a novice IT guy like me could tell, he also arrived at another possibility of how it could have happened.  But, "All's well that ends well."  However, it is a little troubling, but totally believable, that somebody out there hates me.  Come to think of it, it's really not that troubling!
