Bobby Sight | Managing Partner

“Dealers United crushes the Search game. It is a night and day difference.  With Dealers United, I actually talk to somebody, and I know what’s going on. They are accountable: when they say that they’re going to improve a page, or a category, or visibility for a certain city search, I see improvement in it. I have confidence that somebody’s working on it.”

Automotive Digital Marketing Strategy: SEO + SEM in Q1 2024

Part 1

A Content Rich Automotive SEO Strategy

The CHALLENGE

Rob Sight Ford had a hard time finding the right vendor to help improve their website’s ranking on search engines like Google. They tried different SEO solutions, but none of them delivered the content quality or traffic they were looking for to outrank their competition.

The SOLUTION

To align with Google’s focus on user experience, Dealers United implemented a comprehensive SEO approach targeting the entire sales funnel. We published articles optimized with relevant keywords and supported by extensive research and link-building efforts. For example, we created a Ford Bronco vs. Bronco Sport model comparison blog, which secured a top 5 national ranking! Articles like these help answer questions REAL shoppers are entering into Google, guiding the decision-making process, and ultimately driving highly qualified traffic to Rob Sight Ford.

  • Layering advanced audiences like device, time & previous shopping activity
  • New ad extensions for high priority models: 2023 F150s & overall F150s
