  1. Wow. A very interesting article and a fascinating award system. Not only does it generate the drive for company’s to achieve the award status, but it causes them to adapt so that they comply with certain requirements with each award (e.g. organic search results).
    I am curious how much of an impact this is actually having, whether company’s are taking notice or ignoring it in favour of other methods.

  2. Many congrats to TK Carsites and have a blasting future :)

  3. Congratulations to the entire TK Carsites development team!

  4. Jim,
    Any idea when the AWA videos will be posted? I would love to see how the video shoot came out.

  5. Well i really don’t know about this awards before. Congrats to TK Carsites and Best of Luck for future :)

  9. The Automotive Website Awards seek to provide car dealers with an unbiased evaluation of automotive website platforms and integrated search marketing tools.

  10. Have worked with several automotive dealer website companies over the last 5 years and these guys are the absolute worst. Pathetic SEO on the sites, simple changes take days, if not weeks. Unfriendly corporate feel when you talk to someone there. I would suggest staying away from TK and go with one of the better automotive website companies out there. Whoever wrote this must have been given some type of monetary consideration. These guys are now very poor at doing what they claim they do.

  11. Way cool! Some extremely valid points! I appreciate you penning this article plus the rest of the site is also really good.
