Your Online Presence

There are 3.5 Billion Google Searches a day.  Consumers will be searching “Saab Takata airbag recall”.  The good news – all search is local search.  You want your website to rank organically and you may want to pay for some paid search opportunities.  Consumers click on the organic listings approximately 70% of the time.  Approximately 12% on the paid search.

Your Website

  • Update at least once per month – Google and other search engines love up to date content.  Google will not serve your website to a consumer if you do not update it often
  • Be sure your business information is correct all across the web.  Do you have multiple phone numbers circulating at different locations?  That could hurt how you rank on Google.
  • Have well written content about the recall
  • Reference relevant articles from different news outlets
  • Reference

Now that you have content, make sure your website visually represents the recall with these banner ads. When you click on the ads, they will open in another window.  Right click on image and Save Image As
