I got to thinking about Google rankings for car dealerships while I was looking for a Trooper to replace my Volvo wagon and noticed some car lots using a WordPress plugin for auto dealers called Car Demon. It’s a pretty slick plugin for quickly posting new additions to their inventory on their websites. Naturally, I was curious how effective it is for Search Engine Optimization so found a car on a car dealer’s website which uses the plugin and did a Google search for that car to see if his website showed up on Google page 1.
The plugin failed the test. His website wasn’t even in the top 100 Google results.
Google Rankings for Car Dealerships: Kirbyworks #1 in 3 Days
So I got to wondering what it would take to make this plugin get outstanding Google search results and made a dummy post on my website advertising the same car to see if my usual method of SEO would work. Within three days, maybe sooner since I didn’t check any earlier, my post was Google #1. Yep, three days, Google NUMERO UNO for “Mazda MX-5 for sale in Butler, MO,” and first page with my ruggedly handsome mug shot for most any variation of that term.
Damn I’m good.
I was #1 ahead of the big boys like cars.com, cargurus.com, getauto.com, web2carz.com, carsforsale.com, used-cars.corral.net, and carcomplaints.com. Who says you can’t compete with them?
Better Google Ranking for your Car Dealership Means More Business
Ya know, if you are a car dealer, people looking for a specific car in your town might just click on your website page if it’s in the Google #1 spot, doncha think? Having good Google ranking will do that for ya. By the way, are you still advertising in the Yellow Pages? If so, STOP WASTING YOUR MONEY and get with the times my friend. A lot of us haven’t touched a phone book in years. Internet advertising is where you need to be spending your money.
