Glackin: Domain Authority Shouldn't Be Ignored

One of the worst sins committed by vendors in the automotive industry is that they tend to promote the things they're doing well while bashing the things they aren't doing well (or not doing at all). Domain Authority as it contributes to the overall organic rankings of dealer websites has been shown as a very clear indicator of success and should never be ignored, but that's exactly what many are doing.

Since, I also believe that a site worth having is a site worth optimizing, I see it as a very credible resource for gauging the overall health, as it pertains to search. You can download the toolbar here. It’s free.

In this article on DrivingSales, we see these perspectives and a third one expounded upon.

The first important point is that almost all dealer websites are either underutilized or incapable of being utilized at a high level. Here on DrivingSales the readership is more aware of this than the general dealership body, but even the people reading this article now have a good chance of falling into this category.
