Website monitoring. Does your website provider do that? Think again.

Today, website providers for auto dealers offer a number of services outside of hosting a dealer’s website. Many of those services include monitoring services like SEO audits, website analysis, backlink checkers, broken link checkers, and more. But, how does it all really work? In many cases, unmanned automation does the work including creating title tags, metadata and other important attributes to a website. Does that benefit your website? Maybe. But it depends on who is watching.

Who’s really watching your dealership website?

Large website providers have many resources and services to sell you, but monitoring isn’t their strong suit. Customer service is often geared towards upselling additional services rather than monitoring what you already have on your website. And exactly what is it that needs monitoring? Frankly, everything!

Webpages or the widgets within them can stop working due to a global upgrade or some other reason. Often times, neither the dealer nor the web provider representative is aware of the affect that the changes had on a website. Forms can stop working. Payment calculators might stop functioning. Metadata like title tags and descriptions might start being duplicated on all new pages. In some cases, the title tags and metadata couple be completely wiped clean, leaving only black spaces or defaulted tokens in its place. None of this is good for your website.
