    2021 sounds dreamy. We're seeing 30-day notices to comply....or pay this fee and we'll go away.

    Website ADA Compliance - Lawsuits Coming (is your site built for the blind)

    BREAKING news! Carvana & Vroom is bleeding cash. Is Ecommerce in auto DOA?

    More power to them. I love everything about the brand and the product. I just can't wrap my monkey brain around a net loss of $82m and an ad cost per sale of $1,074. But hey, they're making progress. Last year Q1 ad cost per sale was $1,354. Also, they're stating 3.9m site unique visitors per...

    See You Later Autotrader!

    On second thought, I think I'm going to float the idea internally, that we change the name of our store to "floridacargurusautotradercarsdotcomtruecarcarsforsalecarmaxcarfaxfairhonckerautolistcarvana-cars.com." Then I'm gonna cancel CarGurus, ATC, Cars, etc, cuz, you know, f**k those guys...

    CarGurus - significant drop in traffic?

    It was clearly a smash and grab attempt that, well, judging from the complete lack of Cars' representative response, probably is not panning out the way they hoped it would. Any of the sources they were using to show this traffic are now most recently showing a rise in CG's organic traffic...

    CarGurus - significant drop in traffic?

    You must have missed the meme in the other thread regarding Cars.com SEO :D Sure, I was just showing the data from the horse's mouth rather than second hand from Carfax rep. Speaking of paid though, check this out for Carfax. What's your money on @Alexander Lau ? An agency running...

    Cars.com Have you looked at your dealers' SEO rankings since March 12th 2019?

    I would say that there is definitely a delicate dance being performed. But a route of passive education is being taken as opposed to outright direct claim-making or finger-pointing. It's a bold strategy Cotton, let's see if it pays off for them!

    CarGurus - significant drop in traffic?

    From the source: @joe.pistell hit it on the head with the big paid push by CG. Looks perfectly timed during the most recent organic slap on the wrist

    Looking like Carvana pulled CarGurus

    Anyone else noticing the lack of Carvana listings on CarGurus? I was specifically looking for them and typically you can pretty much search anything and their inventory would show. Not so today...I searched for several different makes and models and nothing doing. Maybe they did the 100% rate...
