Lexus Enforces Single Domain Marketing Restrictions

Lexus compliance has been reminding dealers that they may only use their factory approved URL for marketing if the word "Lexus" is in the URL.  

This is not new in regards to their prohibition on microsites with the word "Lexus" in the domain name but recently I saw another variation on domain compliance.

Social Media & Online Directory Compliance


Dealers need to make sure that their primary OEM approved domain is the only website used to register business profiles on review sites like Google Places, DealerRater, Yelp, etc.  This also applies to any social media profiles that are setup with the dealership name.

Lexus is intent on making sure that all public directories or social media sites that have a website URL are all directing to the approved domain. So before you get a compliance "strike" for your dealership, make sure you check all your business and social media assets carefully.

Sorry, but this is just a sore subject for me. Most of the OEM MANDATED providers do a CRAP job of attributing the referral domain instead taking credit for all the results "they" generated. To be penalized by the Factory because you want to point your traffic to a site that performs, converts and doesn't mysteriously kick out your Google analytics code every 3 weeks is ridiculous.
