In this section I'll take you through the common myths that surround Car Wash SEO and debunk them including:

  • Blogging
  • Sitemap Submission
  • Keyword Tools
  • Link Building / Content Marketing

Yes, you have probably heard many say things like 'You have to blog', 'You need to have a Facebook page' or be on Twitter. You need to beg other websites for links.

No, none of that. These are SEO techniques which are not relevant to local businesses like car washes but people tend to spurt them out when they don't really understand Search Engine Optimization and how it should apply to a Car Wash which serves a particular geographical area.

But that doesn't mean you are going to bounce straight to the top of Google or Bing. You might but it could well take a few weeks. Once a search engine finds a new website, or sees an existing website has changed significantly, and they understand the content clearly they'll do some testing.

This might involve ranking you in their top 10 for certain searches 'now and then' and measuring how well people react to you compared to those who are currently ranking. For searches carried out dozens of times a day they are able to gather this information and make a decision within a matter of days. For more occasional search phrases it takes longer.

It costs but Google will tell you how well your website is being received by people (versus competitors) while at the same time giving Google the data it needs to make ranking decisions far faster. It works like this:
