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

    A couple of dealers we know received a notification that their website is not ADA compliant and may face a pending lawsuit...others in the industry have confirmed that they too have received a similar notice. If anyone is not familiar with ADA compliance - it is an ambiguous regulation...

    What do you guys think of everything that's happening with Facebook?

    Google once had competitors, they crushed them. Better management, better acquisitions, better execution. What happened to Alta Vista or Excite :) We forget how young these companies are. Government regulations are not up to speed with today’s tech and consumer usage. The anti trust lawsuits...

    If You Dropped AutoTrader - Where would you put the Money

    @Eley Duke Simple....Google (it is where you find intent based audiences). You can run some clever Display Marketing campaigns that target Dynamic Keywords, Domains, Interests, etc.

    A.I. ain't A.I. in automotive. It is B.S.

    I think we need to first start off with what the exact definition of AI "the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages." I think...

    Weird SERP with Google - What's Up With That?

    Chris, thanks. The results are looking better for some areas than others. Our pages are ranking fine, but it was just strange seeing dealers hours away on the SERP. Again could be the AI piece of Google. Here is an example from today: I am in LA (near UCLA) and my closest Honda Dealer...

    Weird SERP with Google - What's Up With That?

    We are seeing some strange things with Google Organic SERP's and was wondering if anyone is experiencing the same thing. Primarily around "dealer" keywords, i.e. honda dealer, honda dealers, honda dealership, honda dealer near me, etc. Google is pulling dealers from locations a flight away and...

    It's 2019. What is a good Web Lead Close Rate? [Insert "yeah but our leads are different" here]

    Great topic. I am a big believer in "deconstructionism" and this has led me to believe that leads = sales. The more exclusive the lead is the higher the closing rate, i.e. dealer website leads. In the deconstruction model of a car sale, two pieces of the "sale" are left on the table - The...

    Edmunds' Open Vehicle Data API Alternatives?

    Edmunds started restricting access to their API starting in 2016; turning off accounts and making users fill-out an application to get access. There really are none out there :2quiet: - We built our own

    DealerAuthority Third-Party Data & Social Media

    Anyway we can stop talking about Bounce Rate, Time on Site, Pages/Sessions - They are somewhat meaningful in a broad sense of "meaningful", which broken down is nothing more than "meaningless" :unclejoe: . (I think any dealer would take 1 page, 50% bounce rate, 45 sec time on site if it meant...
