I wanted to share the progress I've made on a new theme for Dealer Commerce. The guts of any dealer website predominantly revolve around the search and details pages. I thought it was pretty critical to really nail these pages on each custom theme I build. Here's what I've come up with so far:

I am a vocal advocate for leveraging Google Analytics to guide a dealership's online marketing strategy. Despite my pleas, a small percentage of dealer operators have a consistent process for analyzing Google Analytics data every month to spot trends or to prioritize marketing investments.
So I thought that I would write a few articles that utilize Google Analytics data charts to show hungry automotive marketing professionals and dealer operators how to leverage this great…Continue

Websites that have been established for a while always have the advantage over a new website when it comes to ranking with Google. Google tends to trust websites that have been around longer, and these websites have had more time to build good back links, which can make them difficult to compete with. Fortunately…Continue

Got “optimization block”? It happens to the best of us. However, since we now know the average modern car-shopper shops at least eight dealer websites, it’s more important than ever to make sure your website shows up early in their search and doesn’t get lost in the shuffle.
So what do you do when you’re fresh out of killer keyword combos? As Picasso said, good artists copy, great artists steal. Believe it or not this strategy can be…Continue

The truth is, this fixation on leads is short-sighted. According to a 2011 study done by AutoTrader.com and Polk* 69% of…Continue
