SEO for Automotive Website

SEO By Design

Robert Maxim's auto repair websites are inherently search engine friendly. From the core structure, layout, and formatting of each page, to the auto repair SEO friendly URLs, your auto repair website will be way ahead of many custom build auto repair websites.

Many websites are created from an artistic style and look perspective but then require a huge SEO investment to make them search engine friendly. Or the other trick is to build an auto repair website with poor SEO and then push the website owner to pay for costly paid add programs to get it to perform (while skimming off a hefty commission on the paid ad management fees...)  Search Engine Optimization (SEO) improvement costs for a poorly constructed auto repair website can often equal or exceed the original website development costs! With Robert Maxim your auto repair website has been designed from the start with SEO being the strongest guiding factor.

Search Engine Marketing Plan

Auto repair SEO has two basic components: on-site SEO and off-site SEO actions. On-site auto repair SEO is the work done directly on your website like content writing, meta tag optimization, photos, internal linking, etcetera. Off-site auto repair SEO is work done on other websites like citation cleansing, back-link creation, profile creation and optimization, business reviews, videos, etc. The common ratio for effective SEO work is 15% on-site and 85% off-site.

Where should you Start?

Robert Maxim Website Solutions suggests the following steps to improving your auto repair website SEO. Before staring this work you should have an SEO specialist do a detailed SEO marketing plan with specific goals and action steps.

  1. On-site SEO Actions:
    1. start with a highly effective auto repair website design that is search engine friendly - structurally correct, SEO aware construction;
    2. if moving from an old website make sure all the old page addresses are redirected to the new website. THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT! See our information about moving from an existing website.
    3. create content that targets specific keywords that your customers are search for. Build pages for each specific service, vehicle type, and city you want to attract customers for. This has become THE most important part of on-site SEO!;
    4. optimize each webpage for specific keywords: content writing, keyword use, meta tags, and internal website links;
    5. publish as many customer testimonials and reviews as possible! This is extremely important for converting prospective customers into paying customers. No sense attracting viewers to your website if you don't get them to contact you and become a paying customer!
