Trusted Saskatoon Auto Body Experts at Superior Auto Body Share 5 Fall Driving Safety Tips

Trusted Saskatoon Auto body Pros at Superior Auto Body in Saskatoon has been in business since 1961, and Superior Auto Body has been an SGI APPROVED Saskatoon Auto body shop since SGI started the program in 1982. There are many reasons they have so many loyal longstanding clients from all over the city, but mostly it is the small, personal touches that they offer to people who have been unfortunate enough to require their services. They offer newer model courtesy cars and vans for their clients... and they will also pick up your vehicle, take it to your SGI appointment for you, and deliver the courtesy car to you at home. In their latest Saskatoon Autobody and Collision Repair Tips article, they share 5 fall driving safety tips.

FALL DRIVING SAFETY TIPS FROM SUPERIOR AUTOBODY

Here are 5 fall driving safety tips to stay safe on the road this season. 

1. CHECK YOUR VEHICLE'S TIRE PRESSURE

Fluctuating temperatures cause tire inflation levels to change. As temperature drops, tire pressure also drops, so be sure to keep an eye on your vehicle’s tire pressure to avoid flat tires. Underinflated tires alter your ability to steer and handle your vehicle. Keep you and your family safe this fall by checking tire pressure frequently using a tire pressure gauge and always ensure your tires are inflated to their recommended PSI.

2. BEWARE OF WILDLIFE ON THE ROAD

Particularly in the early morning and late evenings, be sure to look out for wildlife on the road. Fall is the peak season for wildlife collisions. Be sure to drive slowly and exercise caution where animal sign crossings appear and flash high beams to alert animals to stay away.

3. BE CONSCIOUS OF CHANGING WEATHER

As the weather gets colder and temperatures drop overnight, icy patches are present on roads. Be sure to reduce speed and drive cautiously to avoid collisions. As temperatures drop frost covers our windshields in the mornings. Be sure to fully defrost your windshield before driving to maximize visibility. 

Now that summer has come to an end, school is back in session. Beware of rush hour traffic and children crossing the streets, and slow down in school zones to keep everyone safe. The fall season is also indicative of overnight road maintenance so beware of construction zones and reduce your speed accordingly.

4. BE MINDFUL OF FEWER DAYLIGHT HOURS

As the days get shorter, darkness sets in earlier, and we have to commute more frequently in the dark. Ensure the headlights and taillights on your vehicle are in good working condition to have the clearest view possible of the road ahead.

In the fall season, sun glare is something to be mindful of. During dawn and dusk on your commute, you might find the sun to be directly in your eyes. Ensure you maintain optimal visibility by wearing sunglasses and keep your windshield clean. 

5. PREPARE FOR WINTER

The fall season is the perfect time to prepare your vehicle for winter, as you never know when the snow will fly. Update your emergency kit by adding some fall and winter essentials to ensure you are prepared. This should include items such as a flashlight, booster cables, a warm blanket, a waterproof jacket, extra socks and shoes,  a first aid kit, and water. 

In preparation for winter, it is also a good idea to replace your windshield wiper blades, check windshield washer fluid levels, and install winter tires on your vehicle to improve traction and safety on the road.

These are a few tips to help you stay safe on the road this fall. When you’re driving, you should focus only on the road that is in front of you and if you get in any collision or accident, contact Superior Autobody for all your vehicle repair needs.


If you’ve been involved in a collision and are looking to restore your vehicle back to its original form, contact the team at Superior Auto Body Today.

Citations, mentions, and SEO - how being a Trusted Saskatoon partner positively impacts local Google rankings

Citations, mentions, and SEO explained by Sara, owner of Trusted Saskatoon. 

There are many benefits to being a Trusted Saskatoon partner. My local team spends all of our time and energy promoting the Saskatoon partners on the directory as the best options in their industry in Saskatoon and the surrounding area. Once a business passes our unique verification process we invest in consistent advertising and we promote them both individually, and as a community as trustworthy, reputable locally owned, and accountable businesses. We do not do this because they ' bought our favour', we do it because they have proven themselves to be trusted.  Each of the businesses listed on Trusted Saskatoon has signed a contract where they agree to uphold the 5 Trusted Guarantees of Service. 

There is a lot of work and effort that goes on behind the scenes that may not be immediately obvious or understood by our Partners. In this article, I explain how my team helps our partner's websites rank higher in local search independently of their listings on our Saskatoon directory.

 

The SEO Impact Being Trusted Has On Our Partners Local Search Rankings

The key to being found online is having correct, consistent information online. That combined with fresh\new, relevant content on sites that are both yours and NOT yours, is what the internet and search engines really value!   
This is where local SEO citations and mentions on high-quality local directories such as Trusted Saskatoon, on social media, and other trustworthy websites and sources come into play.

What are citations and how do they impact local SEO?

Citations are online mentions of your business on 3rd party websites. If your business is listed on Trustedaskatoon.com, that counts as a local citation. The same goes if your business information is mentioned or featured on 3rd party blog posts or online newspaper/media articles- such as the Star Phoenix new faces new places for example. Citations and online mentions are important for local businesses online since they send out signals that tell Google and the other major search engines they can trust your Saskatoon business.

Why do we recommend focusing on citation building?

We all want to be on the 1st page of Google for our category in our local market for our main target search keywords. If your website ranks higher in search, then it should attract more visitors, generate leads and that should lead to more business. 

To be well ranked in local searches, you need to make sure the search engines have all of the correct information they need about your business. If your most important data is not consistent, the search engines are less likely to put your website forward as a high-ranking option for local prospects searching for your products and/or servcies. 

How The Local Search SEO Point System Works

Google is essentially the head librarian of the web, and as there are over 570,000 new websites added per DAY to the internet it’s a HUGE job! As such, Google has lots of 24/7 ‘library assistants’ helping with the massive and ongoing task of ranking the approximate 1.7 billion websites currently listed on the world wide web. If these assistants, or ‘web crawlers’, find links on 3rd party websites that link back to your business’s website, then they know it is trustworthy and you will earn an SEO point. If that backlink is on a quality local website, like www.trustedsaskatoon.com, then you are awarded additional, highly valued local SEO ‘points’. The same is true for citations; if web crawlers find your business information listed in important online directories, mentioned on other people's blogs, and featured in articles / local news, it solidifies the fact that they can trust your business information to be correct.

Citation building is a small but important piece of the local search marketing puzzle. Our team is working on our clients' behalf to ensure the information we have about them on Trusted Saskatoon is up to date and relevant.

Check out the video below for more information, and if you have questions please do reach out to our team!  

What’s the difference between online citations and online mentions? 

An online mention is when a business or brand is referenced, or "mentioned" on the internet. While often referring exclusively to social media mentions, they also count every time an online publication, website or blog ‘ mentions’  a brand or business name. If the mentions are combined with backlinks to your website and over 300 words of rich locally-focused content all the better.  By rich, we mean that the content includes elements such as quality, copyright-free images, relevant keywords, embedded videos, location-specific words, etc. If that is the case, then the value of that mention increases A LOT! This is why we ask our Partners to work with us to provide information about their specific business/ industry. We take that information and write quality Trusted Saskatoon Tips that feature them as the local experts in their industry!  

When we tag our Partners on our Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, or Twitter platforms the search engines and the web crawlers take note, this, in turn, adds additional SEO POINTS and improves their website’s organic search value. Their business and websites gain more ‘authority' within their respective industry categories in local search. Positive SEO leads to increased visibility, which can then prompt more mentions and further increased SEO points. Less is definitely NOT more when it comes to citations, mentions, and links to websites.

If Partners want to make the most of our expertise, promotions, and online klout, then they need to provide us with more information in the form of interesting, helpful and engaging expert tips about their industry. Our team will do the rest, we know how to take the content and get as many ‘ SEO points ‘ as possible. We then pay to promote that content locally so it reaches your ideal prospects. The more we can help our clients build a solid citation and link-building foundation the better they rank in local searches for their categories.  Our goal is that our Trusted Saskatoon Partners get their unfair share of leads in their categories locally online!

Trusted Saskatoon Auto Body Experts at Superior Auto Body Explain How to Avoid Collisions

Trusted Saskatoon Auto body Pros at Superior Auto Body in Saskatoon has been in business since 1961, and Superior Auto Body has been an SGI APPROVED Saskatoon Auto body shop since SGI started the program in 1982. There are many reasons they have so many loyal longstanding clients from all over the city, but mostly it is the small, personal touches that they offer to people who have been unfortunate enough to require their services. They offer newer model courtesy cars and vans for their clients... and they will also pick up your vehicle, take it to your SGI appointment for you, and deliver the courtesy car to you at home. In their latest Saskatoon Collision Repair Tips article, they discuss 5 common causes of auto collisions and how to avoid them.  

5 COMMON CAUSES OF AUTO COLLISIONS AND HOW TO AVOID THEM

Auto Collisions are quite often referred to as accidents. However, the reality is that auto collisions happen for a reason and can usually be avoided. Here are 5 common causes of auto collisions and how to avoid them. 

1. DISTRACTED DRIVING

Distracted driving is the leading cause of auto collisions. Driving is an important task, and it is imperative that the driver is fully aware of all surroundings and remains alert at all times. With the number of distractions for drivers such as texting, checking themselves out in the mirror, eating, changing the music, or even talking on the phone, it is no wonder distracted driving is the most common cause of collisions. 

To reduce the chance of a collision, distracted driving should be avoided. Distracted driving can be avoided by only using your cellphone in emergency situations using the Bluetooth feature, and not eating, texting, or attempting to multitask when you are behind the wheel. The driver must prioritize driving free from distractions to avoid collisions. 


2. EXCEEDING THE SPEED LIMIT

Speed limits exist and are enforced for a reason. When the speed limit is exceeded, the driver has less time to react to potential hazards. Even if you are running late, slow down. Speeding is not worth the risk to yourself, passengers, and other drivers. Following the posted speed limit will help to avoid collisions by giving the driver time to react to unforeseen circumstances. 

3. IMPAIRED DRIVING

Impaired driving is an inexcusable behaviour that causes auto collisions and destroys lives. It is every driver’s responsibility to ensure that they are fit to operate a motor vehicle before getting behind the wheel. To avoid a collision, do not get behind the wheel if you are impaired, and always plan a safe ride home. With ride-sharing apps such as Uber, a safe ride home is more accessible than ever. There is no excuse for driving impaired, and we must ensure the safety of our community. 

4. INCLEMENT WEATHER

Though inclement weather is a cause of auto collisions that is out of the driver’s control, it is important to exercise caution when driving conditions are unfavourable. Snow, ice, heavy rain, and fog are just some of the inclement weather conditions that are not ideal for driving. 

If you do find yourself caught driving in a storm, avoid a collision by slowing down and staying focused on the road. When driving in a storm ensure your windshield is kept clear to optimize visibility, and always pay closer attention to the road than usual.

5. TAILGATING

Following too close behind the vehicle in front of you is known as tailgating, and this driving behaviour can easily cause an auto collision. To avoid a rear-end collision with the vehicle in front of you, always maintain a safe following distance of at least three seconds. 

When you’re driving, you should focus only on the road that is in front of you and if you get in any collision or accident, contact Superior Autobody for all your vehicle repair needs.


If you’ve been involved in a collision and are looking to restore your vehicle back to its original form, contact the team at Superior Auto Body Today.
