The importance of vital content is immense for all online marketing professionals. The ever increasing popularity of viral content is due to the fact that it can spread extremely quickly and can create backlinks in a breeze without spending much time or effort. These backlinks play a stellar role in generating a huge amount of traffic for the website by improving the search engine ranking of the website.

While we encourage individuals & vendors to contribute to the DrivingSales community, we also have a high watermark for the quality of content contributed. In this case, you've done a nice job of creating a catchy title for your post, however the post itself mentions nothing about these six steps - which is what the viewer is expecting to see upon clicking the title (The post itself sets itself up more for a lesson in back-linking rather than the art of create a viral video) This type of post would be more effective for you, and more helpful to our readers, if you included those 6 steps, along with 1 or 2 video examples. A well crafted blog post should demonstrate someone's authority, expertise and of course, any supporting examples of your skills. DrivingSales community members expect the highest quality information & resources - that's what has helped make this the premier destination for dealers to stay ahead of the game. We look forward to seeing more quality contributions from you. Thank you!

Our blog has articles to help dealerships take control of their own business versus spending thousands of dollars on vendors. The reason for not posting the full content is because search engines tend to not like duplication. Not good for either of us.
Eric Miltsch
Yes, you're correct. Google doesn't like duplication - when it's being used on a large scale spam campaign - which is clearly not your intention here. Plus, if your helpful blog posts are relevant and valuable, you're free to share elsewhere if you simply give proper attribution and links to the original article. That's actually good for both of us then. Thanks for your reply!
Bryan Armstrong
Speaking as a Dealer, I expect the article to be reflective of the Title. Please don't waste my time with a "Teaser" that then asks me to click through somewhere else.

It was strictly for SEO purposes gentlemen. I will be having a conversation with Eric to see how we can work together. The goal is to share the knowledge we have at V8 Apps with our dealers and to help them take back control of their finances. Also, if you click the link, it has the full content. There is no "SIGN UP NOW!!!" or "BUY BUY BUY" sign anywhere on the link. Eric, look forward to your call Thanks Smit.
