Meta Description Psychology

Posted by on September 27, 2011

 in Best Practices, SEO

With meta descriptions, you’re trying to target the intent of a consumer searching for information – presumably, to solve a problem (buy a car, get financing, car repair, etc).  You want to write information in the description that is direct and relevant to the subject of your page, and also the potential query.  When carefully crafted, these descriptions can earn you more clicks and ultimately more leads.

Dealer Website Page Titles For The Win!

Posted by on September 21, 2011

 in Best Practices, SEO

The page title is the text that appears at the top of your browser, and is used by both search engines and users.  When it comes to dealer website SEO it is of the highest importance for two reasons:  1) the title is highly indexed by search engines and affects your ranking, and 2) it is what appears on the search engine results page when a user searches with a keyword relevant to your dealership.  For these two reasons, you’ll need to spend time focusing not only on including keywords, but also on creating compelling copy that would entice a user to click on your link in the SERP.

How to Optimize for Social Search, According to Bing

Posted by on July 28, 2011

 in Best Practices, SEO

Social media dominates online activity, and now has a growing impact on search. Search engines are constantly changing their algorithms to make their search results more relevant for users, and social search is another way for them to do so. By annotating results that users’ social connections “like”, the online search experience is more personalized and trusted.

Recently, Google officially rolled out its social search worldwide, and Bing announced “Friend Effect” – search results derived from the web’s IQ (its existing rankings factors) and opinions of people that users trust most. Some of the social signals included in Google’s search results include content shared or created by friends, content recommended by friends using its +1 button, continue reading..

Basic SEO Guidelines for the Big 3 Search Engines

Posted by on July 21, 2011

 in Best Practices, SEO

When optimizing your dealer website, it is very important to know (and adhere closely to) the webmaster guidelines of the three major search engines: Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Not following these guidelines could result in your website being penalized by the search engines, which in the worst case scenario, results in the removal of your website from search results. In their guidelines, the search giants outline things that website owners should do (and not do) to ensure that their web pages are visible in the search engines.

To make sure that you’re optimizing and not harming your dealer website through your SEO efforts, I’ve listed the important items in the guidelines. Many of the recommendations from the Big 3 overlap, so under each guideline, I’ve listed recommendations that aren’t covered elsewhere. continue reading..

So The Car Dealership Groupon Deal Didn’t Work…

Posted by on July 15, 2011

 in Industry News

There was a big splash in the automotive news world a few days ago when we saw the first auto dealership Groupon offer. Twitter and blogs were all abuzz with industry experts, vendors, and dealers debating the deal, and offering opinions about whether it would work or not.  Now the deal has expired, and the minimum number of Groupon vouchers weren’t purchased, so the deal is null and void.

Of course, everyone is now jumping on the “here’s why it didn’t work” bandwagon… There’s a great post by Arnold Tijerina over at dealer-magazine.com called “Why the first car dealership Groupon failed” – give it a read, he’s got a few great points…

To summarize, he says the deal didn’t have value for the customer because customers EXPECT to negotiate with the dealer and bring the price down by at least $500 – so why would a Groupon be necessary?  Also, the dealer probably didn’t handle the Groupon correctly – as potential buyers were leaving comments debating the worth of the deal, the GM left a few comments of his own to try to prove to people how valuable the deal was: continue reading..

Groupon Offers First Auto Dealership Voucher

Posted by on July 12, 2011

 in Industry News

So I just saw a really interesting post over on Advertising Age – The first Groupon deal for an auto dealership was rolled out today for LaFontaine Buick GMC Cadillac in Highland, Michigan. Sure, we’ve seen a few Groupons for oil changes and service departments, but apparently this is the first voucher that would be applied to purchasing a vehicle.

According to the article, they’re not sure how it’s going to perform, and they’re a bit reluctant to be the first dealership in the country to attempt a Groupon deal – but they like the fact that they’re setting a precedent. continue reading..
