In this week’s Wednesday Workshop, we talk about the importance of your dealership blog. Most dealers realize that SEO is vital to success, but there are still too many dealers who don’t have a blog as part of their dealership website. Your blog is vital – it lets you share useful and helpful information with customers and potential customers, it helps you get links from other sites, and it helps you build more local relevancy. Watch the video for all the details.

In this week’s Wednesday Workshop video, we share a warning about site grader tools. These tools are incredibly generic, so they won’t always return accurate results for your dealership’s website. The tools treat every site the same, yet your dealership site is completely different from your local plumber’s site. The warnings and errors that are returned by these tools don’t necessarily mean that there’s something wrong with your site. Watch the video for all the details, and check with your current provider before you make any hasty decisions based on the results of these reports.
