Dealer Website Page Titles For The Win!

Posted by on September 21, 2011

 in Best Practices, SEO

 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..

 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.

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..
