Save $300,000 On Your Dealership Website!

Sorry for the the sensationalist title but the fact of the matter is dealerships are getting fleeced on their websites. We took a realistic look at what dealerships spend over a five year period on their websites. So many dealerships are afraid to take control of their own website. It really is quite easy when you have the website built using an open source content management system. You can still display inventory easily, update specials and so much more. The video below explains a little more… Continue

SEO Link Quality Vs Link Quantity

Hello all, I have been getting a lot of questions lately about links, everyone wants them and there seems to be some fundamental misunderstandings at times about what an ideal link is, and how links effect search engine rankings. I blogged about it, and then made a video to share out on a few sites. I didn't want to post the same article all over the web so I went with video instead. If you choose you can read the article on… Continue

Why Do You Use PPC-No Seriously Tell Me?

I am going to make my best case for why PPC is a total waste of money in the automobile industry, and I invite you, the dealerships, or PPC salespeople to join the fun and make your case. This should be some fun, let’s keep it clean, and professional. In the interest of full disclosure I of course sell SEO, in many ways a direct competitor for PPC marketing dollars. (Even though we don’t agree with the logic) We do feel dealerships should do some PPC, as well as SEO, the problem we see are so… Continue

Dealing With Dealership Website Vendors

Anyone who takes care of dealerships online advertising you will inevitably have to make changes to your dealership website. In fact, those who stay on top of their websites are far more likely to succeed. The problem is most dealerships do not own their own website; they rent it from companies like Cobalt, BZ, IZMO, Vin Solutions, and others. Thus, whenever a change needs to be made the dealer must rely solely on their vendor’s backend tool if they wish to do it themselves, or a phone tree… Continue

Is Your Dealerships Link Profile A Toxic Mess?

Links links and more links something every website desires, especially in the dealership world where it is difficult to obtain high quality links. In many early link building campaigns where quantity still ruled over quality a lot of crummy link profiles were created. Now, to explain what a link profile is, that is basically the list of websites linking to yours, what pages they are linking to, where the links are coming from and the anchor text used in the link. If you are not familiar with… Continue

Cut Through the Bull- Take the Time to Do Your Own Research

After working in the car business for many years, and having the esteemed luxury of being able to dive in head first without any prior automobile experience I quickly found out that there were a lot of places to get “help”. With piles of trade magazines, weekly advice from OEM’s, and hundreds of websites out on the web to search through I found there were a lot of people sharing “advice”. It wasn’t until after I left the dealership did I really start to see the truth. At this point I should… Continue
