All this WHINING about True Car! It is a voluntary leads provider. If you choos not to participate, then DON'T. I signed up for ADM hoping for positivity but am discovering this site is worse than the dealership huddle!
Feature Again? Well, You deserve it. I just want to say, any dealers looking to get to #1 in your area should definitely use Brian. I own and SEO some very large and competitive sites, and I've analyzed several of Brian's campaigns with a fine tooth comb. Brian's definitely the real deal and can take you from last to first. Not many real SEO guys out there that can do what he can do. 90 % of the so called "SEO gurus" are college kids who took Internet Marketing in college and couldn't rank on the first page for "kumquat". I've found Brian to always be one of the first on the scene with the next great thing and I religiously read whatever he writes. Not just good information, but great information. I congratulate you Brian on a job well done. Keep up the great work.

PS. Congratulations on all the dealers who signed up for the PCG Automotive SEO Study. You've taken the first step to conquering your competition.
ADM members will surface common problems in the four TIPS categories in their comments on the post which Uncle Ralph will narrow down to five. Consultants on ADM will register on the post before the live webinar where each will be given a set time to address the problems and suggest best practices to resolve them to the accumulated live audience who will register with Ralph through an online webinar service before the event. After the webinar, participants will be asked to vote on each problem for the consultant(s) and their best practice with their comments on the post for all to read.
The winner will be the consultant with the most accumulated votes -- and of course anyone who followed the post and participated since we will all be able to listen and learn from eachother!
No pressure, but the new ADM Consultant Challenge promises to surface and share some cutting edge best practices and I/we would love to listen and learn from you along with the other contributors. After all, what are friends for!
Hi. I was wondering what the difference is between: "link:www.cherryhillvw.com" vs "links:www.cherryhillvw.com" in yahoo. Getting drastically different results. 131 inlinks for the "link" versus 7 for "links". Are both helpful? Should we be focusing on one or the other? Thanks, Pete.
Brian, I think any discussion about how to better serve the Spanish speaking and Latino communities is a big win for all involved... Please do get tht discussion thread going. I worked diligently at Spanish and Latino targeted online marketing for 2 years while at Courtesy Chevrolet... I used LatinoChevy.com as my primary website, but also built several Spanish language microsites and ran dozens of Spanish language Google Adwords campaigns... Over half of the contracts written in our F& I dept. were printed in Spanish language versions because so many of our customers were more comfortable in Spanish than in English... We all learned a lot, not all opf which is intuitive... It is a different consumer segment than Anglos and responds differently to different types of campaigns, and even the media used.
Regarding ADP Dynaic websites; Yes,the individual page titles and various meta tags for each page can be defined within the ADP Content Management Sysem using standard dealer site admin acess. There are individual fields for page titles and multple meta descriptors when changing content and other characteritics fr each page in th CMS.
It is great to see you here... I am in my home office all week working on several Digital Marketing proposals after one of those too-much-travel weeks facilitating Digital Advertising Dealer Summits that started in Phoenix, then Dallas, followed by Houston on Thursday and finishing with a Summit Meeting in San Antonio, TX. I am in my home office preparing for next week's gun fight and trying to get caught up on expense reports.
On behalf of both myself, and the rest of the 1,450+ member ADM family, welcome to our online community and file sharing repository... We are very happy to see you have joined our community of automotive marketing and sales professionals.
Please take a moment to share some more information about yourself and your professional role. More information links, some blog postings with PPT, XLS, DOC and PDF files attached are particularly welcome. And of course we all love to see and listen to your music, photo and video uploads. I pay extra for additional server storage capacity for ADM and any valuable content you upload to make use of it is all appreciated.
Please note that you can upload documents into any blog post, forum discussion, group, comments and other sections for ADM members to download. There are already hundreds of PowerPoints, Excel Spreadsheets, Word Doc's, PDF files and more... We would be thrilled to get you to upload a few of yours to share with the community.
VERY IMPORTANT - All of us at ADM very much appreciate that you took the time to complete your profile section by uploading a photo of yourself. Most ADM members would like to put a face with your name and profile... Based on what i have seen since starting the ADM Professional Community at the beginning of 2008, I can promise you that you'll get more out of ADM when other members see that you have uploaded a profile photo!
I love seeing more and more automotive professionals and auto industry colleagues like yourself join the ADM community... When I checked the membership section a moment ago, I was pleasantly surprised to see that as of today, and thanks to your enrollment we are now up to over 1,450 automotive sales and marketing professionals who have joined the ADM Community... With help from automotive marketing professionals like yourself, we broke the 1,000 member mark on the 4th of July, 2008!
Amazing support from an amazing industry... Makes the aggravation of flying around the country with a guy sitting next to me who keeps sticking his elbow into my ribs, somehow worth it!
