Even though I ranked DDC #2 for CDJR website vendors, I'd rank them near dead last for SEO.

You might be lucky for them to spend 30 minutes a month on your site - and you'll get a report saying they updated one page title, three meta descriptions, and created one citation listing for you on some obscure no-follow site.

You've got to be kidding me. What is even the point!

Completely agree with what Ryan Everson said. I work w/ many franchise dealerships using vanity sites, where they are still able to comply w/ the OEM cop-op requirements yet have a vanity site that is able to do what they need in terms of both on/off page SEO and better/more complete merchandising of their inventory (optional packages & exact features)

@KodyVoyles, we had a short conversation about DDC SEO a little while back here in the forums. It may interest you. Maybe.

Better off doing nothing to your website at all than paying them for this service.

May even end up worse after the fact.

They recycle content..change a few city names, and you pay for them to correct basic page and meta data that they should have gotten right in the first place.

I’d be surprised if they even got into google search console in anything they do..
