Are Your Indexed Websites Pages Up or Down According to Google

trend-600 By Brian Pasch

Google Webmaster Tools is a free software program that has great information about your website, yet few people actually look at Webmaster Tools every week.  I wanted to see if the trend, that I have been witnessing in Webmaster Tools, applies to members of DrivingSales.

Take a minute to log into Webmaster Tools and select the "Index Status" report from the menu, which is shown below.  For this dealer, their indexed website pages are down 200%.

Are your indexed pages, for your primary website, on the decline or are they increasing?  

I would love to see if we could get a 100+ data points from dealers across the country to see if Google's indexing of car dealership website pages has changed.

Will you share your trend today?

Please login to Google Webmaster Tools and find out.  Then post your results in the comments section and if you will, please post which website platform you are using.

Also, take a minute to tweet out this post or share it on Facebook so we can get more dealers to share their trend data.  Your anticipated cooperation is greatly appreciated.
