Jake, I don't think there will ever be a solution to this with any major website provider. If you truly want unique content, you will have to go in and edit what is there or create your own. If you need some help or guidance, let me know, I have created over 1000 pages of custom content on our sites, and the payoff is tremendous in SEO if you are willing to take the time to do it...I agree. For example, to change our site text from "trebuchet ms" to "Arial" - which is simply changing the name in the css file - it will be $150.
That is crazy! Our rep said the high price is due to the hourly rate they charge, which must be around $1000 per hour because that is a 2 minute change - at the most!
Also, I am fed up with the so called "SEO experts" at Dealer.com. THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY'RE DOING and it seems to me they do not have any hands on experience - they just read whatever is on the latest SEO blogs & they do not understand the simple concept of DUPLICATE CONTENT HURTS YOUR RANKINGS.
They keep replacing our new & fresh content with the SAME CONTENT that is on every out-of-the-box Dealer.com website. Of course universal keywords are changed like [Dealer Name] [Dealer Make] [Street Address] [Town address] etc but Google is not stupid.
Just my 2cents...for now...could go on..
