eXtéresAUTO Wins ‘HIGHEST RATED’ DrivingSales Vendor Ratings Award

Company Ranks #1 in Dealer Satisfaction for SEO

ORLANDO, Fla.–(EON: Enhanced Online News)–The winners of the 2009 DrivingSales Vendor Ratings Awards were unveiled today, and eXtéresAUTO received the ‘Highest Rated’ ranking in dealer satisfaction for SEO. The awards program bestows one top ranking across nine major vendor categories – from websites, to third-party leads, to CRM – as determined by the thousands of dealers who are part of the DrivingSales community. eXtéresAUTO not only ranked #1 in SEO, they were the only ‘Top Rated’ vendor that combined a 4.9/5-star rating with an overall dealer recommendation rate of 98%.
“We are proud to present this award to eXtéresAUTO which has achieved a standard of excellence that is clearly resonating with dealers”
“We’re especially honored to win this #1-rated SEO award from DrivingSales, because their program uniquely measures the honest, real-world opinions of thousands of dealers who actually use these products and services,” noted eXtéresAUTO CEO, Richard Winch.
The awards will be presented at the 2010 NADA Convention in Orlando. The ‘Highest’ and ‘Top-Rated’ vendors will be featured in the inaugural issue of the DrivingSales Dealership Innovation Guide. The Guide, which also features cutting-edge, proven best practices, also spotlights eXtéresAUTO dealer Dick Hannah Honda’s success with the company’s SEO and Online Reputation Management solutions.
“We are proud to present this award to eXtéresAUTO which has achieved a standard of excellence that is clearly resonating with dealers,” said DrivingSales CEO and Founder Jared Hamilton. “This year’s award-winners have won recognition in one of the most challenging years on record for our industry. We salute them for their ongoing commitment to provide value to their dealer clients.”
The eXtéresAUTO SEO Difference: The company’s proprietary SEO technology works on an automated basis to constantly monitor complex algorithm changes at Google, Yahoo! and Bing, to ensure dealer clients’ websites ‘come up first’ – 24/7 – when potential customers are typing in over 1,200 relevant brand and local market search phrases.
And unlike any other dealer SEO vendor, eXtéresAUTO guarantees territory exclusivity: working with only one of each brand in any 10-city market, to assure clients dominate the search engines’ first pages. Dealerships using the company’s advanced SEO now achieve, on average, 83% first-page search engine placement rates – up from 14% before eXtéresAUTO. SEO is a critical component of the company’s comprehensive ‘Search Asset Management’ approach, which also integrates advanced Online Reputation Management, Piracy Solutions, Website Analytics – and more.
The DrivingSales award was not the only honor the company took home at the NADA Convention: eXtéresAUTO was also named one of the ‘Top Ten Companies to Watch in 2010’ by AutoSuccess magazine.
