    Interesting to see a new dealership site vendor Fox Dealer, the "#1 Fastest Growing Company in Automotive" on the Inc. 500.

    Crawling a few of their websites, they have a silly little error that you should demand resolved if considering them for website development. Their URLs are canonicalized to their non-trailing slash version, which itself 301 redirects to the trailing slash version.

    https://www.toyotaofhb.com/bad-credit-financing/
    Indexability: Non-Indexable
    Indexability Status: Canonicalised
    Canonical Link Element 1: https://www.toyotaofhb.com/bad-credit-financing
    Status Code: 301
    Redirect URI: https://www.toyotaofhb.com/bad-credit-financing/

    For those of you who have friends, Google treats URLs outside of your Home page with trailing slashes and those without as separate pages, even if it's the same content. It's dumb too because Googlebot will attempt to crawl canonicals. I'm sure it's a quick fix, but should definitely be requested none-the-less.

    Another great find, just like your others. Good for you, call their asses out! Don't believe any if that crap with "fastest growing..." it's pure lies and speculation. Do you know how many companies use that BS award icons? Reminds of the AWA.

    @Alexander Lau@Alexander Lau Thank you. Yeah, I worked at an agency that was on it for two years, but because they acquired two other companies during that time.

    Holy crap, option(s) overkill. Did they have a contest to see how much they'd be able to jam in the header, without the site breaking? ;-)

    Maybe an ethnic following...!? Never underestimate that demographic, "ethnicities."
