New Google Maps Means New Ads and New Focus on Reviews

Are you ready for the new Google Maps?  Make sure you’re well positioned to take advantage of new opportunities to reach car buyers.  Google made their new Maps product public this week, and the changes are fairly substantial.  The layout is cleaner, fullscreen and more modern -- but more importantly, the revamped maps relocate business listings from the left sidebar directly onto the map  itself.  The upside: more exposure for your dealership on every local search.  The catch: You’ll have to…See More

Measure What Matters

You have Google Analytics implemented across all your dealer group's sites. You know that data based analysis grows more important to your dealership management teams and the decisions they make every year. You may have even heard Google's Avinash Kaushik railing against traditional web stats at the last Digital Dealer conference in Orlando. But you're not sure how to accurately measure what matters... Or which metrics matter more than the others.The short answer: Ignore any measurements or…See More
