    That's crazy. I always laugh when I see crazy shit like that. They'll bitch about spending money on something that performs and helps to sell cars each month but turn around and spend money on something this.

    lol. That's the vendor who does that for those two pages above! Also they offer 2,000 Google +1's, yet I would LOVE to see any dealer order that, Google will de-list them from the SERPs without hesitation. (Hundreds of studies on this). I hate vendors like WikiMotive, they have no idea what their doing, even if you want to buy +1's they have to be in a very slow diverse dripfeed, which they know clearly nothing about. Offering a service that can destroy a dealership's website, I dislike the fact, but if a dealer wants to be unethical, I'm all for their websites getting de-listed.

    The only thing that $500 a month has done is put a negative number in their profit margin, since 5% are real follower. Smart consumer don't decide on where their next purchase will be based on FB likes.

    Cheers

    Also, you can buy 5K likes for ~$44 everywhere online.. (And that's a single order, bulk orders get them even lower), and on almost any SEO forum.. Simply send e-mail to random provider, and it's done in 1-3 days. Charging $500/Month is crazy. ex: 10K likes, a $1,000 Bill for $88 worth of products, not to mention it's social so good luck getting any value of it to begin with..

    Don't read anything at all into this.. cough.. but if you do a Google Image Search for "car dealer fail", a picture of the owner of Wikimotive is pretty close to the top of the results. Seriously. Just saying.
