Automotive SEO requires a deep understanding of the automotive industry as well as expertise in technical SEO and analyzing searcher psychology. To help business owners find an experienced automotive SEO partner, our team has analyzed 50+ agencies and ranked the top 8 based on the following factors:

  • Notable Clients: Experience working with automotive businesses is the best indicator of how well an SEO agency will perform with future clients in the industry.
  • Leadership Experience Score: We evaluated each agency’s top SEO experts and executives based on their experience in both SEO and the performance of previous automotive SEO campaigns.
  • Company Size: While size is not a direct indicator of agency skill, it correlates with both strong client retention and access to resources to handle a broad range of automotive SEO needs.
  • Years in Business: The SEO industry has undergone several drastic shifts over the last 20 years, and longer lived agencies have demonstrated their ability to adapt their strategy as Google updates their algorithm.
  • Headquarters Location: Companies located in major cities have access to a diverse talent pool, allowing them to consistently improve the quality of their services.

We also list each agency’s approach to SEO, and provide a brief description and analysis below.

Graham Oleson combines SEO with both digital and traditional advertising, and works almost exclusively with automobile dealerships.
