Broomfield, CO, USA – October 14, 2021 – As the North American vehicle shortage continues, MotorCloud — the first true search engine for car buyers – is experiencing surges in website traffic. Shoppers are turning to its whole-market solution, which provides access to all the vehicles in the entire car market, in one site.
Monthly unique visitors to MotorCloud.com are up 239% over the last two quarters. Searches for trucks, electric vehicles and exotics are up the most, by 187%, 212% and 252% respectively.
A combination of factors has caused this. Shoppers are looking beyond traditional sites like Cars.com, AutoTrader and CarGurus, in an effort to track down harder to find inventory. Dealers are shifting ad dollars away from traditional sites to focus more on driving traffic to their social media accounts, and their own websites and through SEO, SEM and other search-related tactics.
MotorCloud is uniquely positioned to facilitate both of these movements, as the first true search engine for cars. The automotive startup enables users to search once and see all vehicle listings, anywhere online, streamlining the car shopping experience by using the Google model: simplicity and relevance.
MotorCloud (http://www.motorcloud.com) has compiled over 3 million vehicle listings, the interface is dead simple, and it works lightning fast on mobile.
As private seller cars become a more important source of inventory for dealers, MotorCloud’s Cloud Cash app makes it easier for people to sell their car by providing bids from multiple dealers at once. This frees up a new source of used vehicles at a time when they are hard to find and exorbitantly priced.
Shattering the Myth of Transparent Search
Typically, online car shoppers are shown pre-screened, curated results. They’re shown the cars that dealers paid to have shown. And shoppers have to do this on site after site to compare vehicles. There are often other relevant vehicles in a given area, but shoppers may not see them because traditional car listing sites emphasize dealer-sponsored search results. They like it this way. It’s profitable. But it doesn’t give you transparency on the car market.
MotorCloud democratizes car shopping.
