What is Googleopoloy? 

Google has 67% market share of search and is the number one search engine world, and what is crazy is the number two search engine is YouTube which is owned by Google. So it is safe to say that when it comes to online search, Google has the Monopoly. 

It is safe to say that everyone has heard of and or played the board game Monopoly and knows exactly what the object of that game is which is to lock things down! Control the board. Own it all. 

That is the same idea behind “Googleopoly”.  It is about accomplishing that same kind of domination but on the search engine Google rather than the board game Monopoly.

If you are a front line car sales professional, a internet director or the dealer principal him or herself, if you are looking to build a audience and gain visibility you need a “Googleopoly” strategy. 

Here is a quick rundown on how to execute a successful Googleopoly strategy that Sean V Bradley breaks down in this session. 

1. A Website Properly Optimized 

It should be a no brainer that a automotive dealership has a fully optimized website in todays market but where a lot of so called “automotive sales professionals” are missing the boat is by having their own personal website. 

It is not just about having a website but more so about having a AWESOME website with the onsite SEO executed properly.

In todays market you are not player if you do not have a website and your home base for your “Googleopoly” strategy is your website. It doesn’t matter if you are front line car sales professional, you need a website just as much as a entire dealership in todays market place. 

2.Video Seo 

Online video creates superstars! There is nothing more powerful when it comes to getting noticed as online video and YouTube (which you know is owned by Google) is the number second most popular search engine in the world as well as one of the top 3 most visited websites in the world. 

Video is 53% more likely to be clicked on in a search engine and not only that Google is looking for YouTube videos optimized properly so your chances of indexing and ranking on page one of Google are much higher when you use video. 

3.Social Media Optimization 


Social Media is another very important piece to your “Googleopoly” strategy. We all know by now the importance of social proof and the roll it plays in selling more cars but are you maximizing on its potential to help you dominate Google? 

There are several social channels that if optimized properly can contribute tremendously to your “Googleopoly” strategy and Google page one domination.  

4.Online Reputation Optimization
