make their car-buying experience simpler, easier and more effective
DAYTON, Ohio – Dec. 1, 2009 – CarLocate.com, a nationwide new and used vehicle search Web site, today announced two new features that enable consumers to better interact with CarLocate.com and its content. The CarLocate.com blog offers consumers automotive news and information about the car buying process. The "Share" button allows consumers to easily bookmark and share their favorite vehicle listings from CarLocate.com to social Web sites so they can seek feedback from people in their social networks.
"We know that consumers use a number of different sources to learn more about buying a car and to help them determine which car to buy," said Nicole Case, general manager of CarLocate.com. "That's why, in addition to the vehicle research section and automotive articles already on our site, we've added the CarLocate.com blog and the option to share vehicle details on social sites. These are two more ways consumers can gather and exchange information to help them make the best possible decision on buying a car and improve their overall experience."
The CarLocate.com blog features a variety of information about the car buying process – from car news to consumer advice to law and regulation changes that affect car buyers. CarLocate.com will use comments left on blog posts to help shape content going forward.
"Early visitors to the site told us that they wanted to be able to share vehicle information from CarLocate.com to their favorite social networking sites," said Case. "So, we added the 'Share' button to each vehicle details page so car shoppers can quickly and easily share a vehicle's information across nearly 200 Web sites. This includes some of the most popular social sites such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and StumbleUpon."
