About the Product

Now introducing CarGurus SEM for dealers! We are combining our technology and data with your inventory to create a high efficiency search engine marketing program for your dealership. Our algorithms generate over a million keywords per dealership, each with their own unique bid, and creates dynamic ads to match that link directly to your site and update in real time based on your inventory. We also run retargeting campaigns through Google and Facebook to extend your reach.

Pros: I tried for three months. After spending almost $9000 They tracted around thirty phone calls. One third talked for 18-39 seconds. Did not move us up on Google search did not add one deal to business

Cons: I’m a dealer who gladly pays for results. I also want my money back after they could only show me stats of visitors to my website. No additional leads for the three months. I requested my money back which was not in their plan. I made offer to pay half as I would take half the blame for not getting clear understand of what they proposed to accomplish. Told me No. They wanted it all. This used to be a top drawer company. I’ve been with them since 2013. I have even eaten their extreme price incresss. $199 in 2013 to $1736 2018. They are following the path of autotrader. Same outcome may follow.

WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND GURUS!
