Free analysis of your auto parts online marketing!

Even if you have an agency already managing your paid search campaigns in Google AdWords or in the Yahoo/Bing Network, qualified websites can receive a free analysis of current online automotive marketing. We might help you find ways to improve your ROI or organically increase your auto parts sales. (You’ll see terms like “organic search” or “natural search” used when referring to Search Engine Optimization, but it all means the same thing.)

In the aftermarket, online marketing is critical to reach today’s auto, marine and motorcycle shoppers

  • More than 4 out of 5 automotive enthusiasts begin their search online using Google, Bing and Yahoo. That’s what makes automotive PPC so important!
  • Consumers are constantly connected: they move effortlessly from computer to tablet to phone and your Internet marketing should, too.
  • Enthusiasts use the Internet to research products and make decisions on where to buy, as well as which brand to buy.
  • Internet marketing benefits manufacturers as much as it does retailers. Manufacturers can control their own branding message using PPC.

Automotive parts SEO Company, Sell More Online

Sell auto parts? We can create effective organic search campaigns to drive more sales to your website. You can reach buyers while they’re shopping and making buying and brand decisions. It’s important to develop page content in the context of what consumers are searching for, so we pay close attention to long tail keywords, like part type or make, model and year. You’ve probably heard “content is king” but context of a search is a close second (maybe context is the queen?). You’ll want your product pages to show up for searches with a high purchase intent.

Automotive parts SEO for Manufacturers

Reach shoppers making buying decisions by using effective organic search marketing and sell direct or send them to your dealers. More than half of all auto parts & accessories buyers visit manufacturer websites to do research before buying a product. Bring your new products to market quickly and create consumer demand and pull-through sales. Online marketing lets you take control of your brand.

Search Marketing for Race Tracks/Events

Increase ticket sales by being found on more search engines. SEO can be more effective than traditional media buys such as radio or TV advertising. We also specialize in Facebook, Twitter and other types of social marketing to reach your fans’ friends and expand your online organic reach. We utilize JSON-LD code and schema so Google recognizes events, times and ticket sales, and and displays these important things for search activity, often in the Google Knowledge Graph (also known as Position Zero).

Automotive Parts SEO for Aftermarket Manufacturers:

Manufacturers: even if you don’t sell online you should be visible online. Nine out of 10 aftermarket parts buyers do their part and brand research online before buying, even if they’re going to buy in a retail store.

Today’s parts buyers are obsessed with research before buying. It’s critical to be found online.

Automotive SEO companies vs. search agencies that work in any industry…see important differences:

Auto parts SEO is a different process in our industry than it is for other retailers or manufacturers because of the unique differences in our industry’s products and our industry’s consumers. Here’s a handy comparison of typical search engine optimization activities we think are important to growing your sales if you’re in the auto parts business. Keep this comparison in mind when talking to any digital agency that specializes in organic search.

Automotive online Marketing ActivityAutomotive SEO CompanyNon-Automotive Generalized SEO Company
Understanding “long tail” auto parts SEO terms, which are search phrases using 3 or more words) (See our article on long tail search for more information.)Auto parts and accessory consumers typically use long tail (3 or more) search terms, including year, make, or model combinations, vehicle submodel, or part type or function, etc. Examples: “2014 Mustang exhaust system” or “Cummins diesel turbo EGR.”Generalized companies without automotive experience, that try to work in many different industries, may not understand the value of long tail searches, may not understand the important differences in various long tail phrases, and may not understand differences between generations of car/truck models with different engines or chassis.
Being found organically for part numbers including long complex OEM part numbers:Today’s research-obsessed consumers often know the specific part number they’re looking for. Part number searches are searches with high purchase intent. These searches are often modified by brand terms of the manufacturer.Conventional search agencies aren’t likely to understand the level of importance part numbers play in organic search.
Understanding the latest automotive trends, especially new automotive products, important for automotive SEO companies:Understanding the latest industry trends and new products is important when strategically planning an online campaign. We attend the SEMA Show, AAPEX and the PRI Show every year and have our finger on the pulse of the automotive aftermarket.Non-automotive search companies aren’t aware of trends in the automotive parts aftermarket, and probably don’t qualify to get into the trade shows either.

SEO strategies: building compelling site content vs. building inbound links

For automotive parts search we get asked if we focus on creating inbound links to improve automotive rankings, or if we optimize organically by building unique and useable content, or is it a combination of both?

The answer is we like to emphasize site content with a slight priority over inbound links. Good, engaging content that provides useful information to the customer is what tends to rank highest organically. In other words, build pages for the reader, not for Google.

Relying on inbound links that aren’t built naturally—or worse, paid inbound links—is a good way to have your site penalized by Google, resulting in a drop in your organic rankings. For solid SEO that won’t backfire on you, we prefer to put a priority on your website and looking at your site structure, making sure it is correct with


tags for example. We like to verify that image alt tags are present and correctly optimized. We also like to make sure Google Webmaster Tools and Bing Webmaster Tools accounts are being fully utilized. And, most importantly, we make sure the page educates the consumer through well-thought-out, engaging automotive content.

How a foundation in market research aids in auto parts SEO

We are often asked about our market research background. To us, it’s important to base decisions on facts and data, not opinions. Most of what we do is based on our knowledge of enthusiast shopping and browsing behavior. We’ve surveyed over 500,000 race fans, car and truck enthusiasts, and hard parts buyers over the past few years. Plus, we do extensive keyword research for each individual client. All of this helps us create a cost-effective approach to providing superior services to our clients.
