    Dealer.com WWW issue for Secure Sites

    I've searched the forum and can't find a post on this, so figured I would throw it out there to help folks not aware of the issue. If you have a Dealer.com site, and are on the secure version (https), if you remove the WWW from the URL, the site won't resolve. Chrome gives an error: This...

    Automotive-websites holding dealers' Google Analytics history hostage?

    Ugh. Come on, really? Major automotive website companies (nameless at the moment), ad agencies also, telling dealers, "Sorry we can't transfer Admin for your Google Analytics, since we own that." So the dealer doesn't own their historical website performance stats? Aren't they paying you to...

    Thank you pages, Form abandonment tracking

    Any Google SiteLink Experts out there?

    I met with a medium size dealer group today, they presented an interesting challenge that I can't seem to find a successful example of, or an answer to. They have 6 or so stores, and they want their group-site SiteLinks to appear on Google organic search with each store listed. Typically with...

    Dealer.com is driving me nuts, what is the best alternative?

    Since being in the car business, I've always been stuck with Dealer.com. My biggest issue with them is that it takes FOREVER to get an update done to the website. Even if I do the coding myself, it takes forever for them to add one. And besides the fact they want to charge you for every little...

    Sticky Website Headers

    I like sticky headers, how about you? When you get to a website, one of the most annoying things to me is having the top header disappear as you scroll down, so you have to always scroll back up to see the menu and other things. I think sticky headers are the way to go on all devices, as well as...

    What Did You Pay for Your Dealer Websites?

    Hey everyone, I'm wondering what you have paid to have your dealer website created, or what you pay a third-party to maintain it. One of my previous clients paid $40K for a fully-fleshed out Wordpress site, with a nice inventory plugin, and a thorough finance application that did "progressive...

    Maximizing your OEM website

    A few months back our dealer group decided to get rid of our 3rd party website (VinSolutions) and decided to attempt to just upgrade and optimize our OEM website (Dealer.com thru Ford Direct). While I like the idea of not having 2 different websites competing with each other for search rankings...
