Kenyans love cars, I guess it’s a dream of many people to own a car after getting their jobs, or making better deals in their businesses. For buyers and sellers of cars in Kenya, there are two leading websites you can get the information about your desired car, the price and be able to negotiate with the seller. For sellers, you have to place ads (both free and paid) to these websites in order to get buyers for your car.
Top Car Websites in Kenya
I have chosen the two websites http://www.cheki.co.ke/ and http://www.autobazaar.co.ke/ based on Alexa ranking among other factors. Alexa ranking helps in determining the authority of a website based on the number of visitor viewing that particular website.
Autobazaar.co.ke vs Cheki.co.ke: Buying or Selling a Car in Kenya?
This is the top car website in Kenya because it has an Alexa ranking of 50 in the country and a global ranking of 74,252 (as at 25th January, 2013, it is important to note that the traffic statistics can change overnight depending on the marketing strategies of the competitors).
Autobazaar has 71 sites linking to it indicating that the site does not have a high authority in the eyes of the search engines such as Google, Yahoo, Bing and Ask. The common keyword that the site gets traffic from is ‘used cars for sale in Kenya’ and ‘used cars meaning that Kenyans are opting to buying the used cars.
For buyers, this is a good place to get information about the car you want to buy and make a comparison of prices from other websites. It is easy to navigate but I sincerely don’t like their arrangements.
Cheki Cars in Kenya http://www.cheki.co.ke/
This is the second top car website in Kenya based on its Alexa ranking of 56 in the country and a global ranking of 62,973 (refer above).
Cheki has a good online reputation with 986 sites linking to the car website. This means that the sites ranks on top of search results on Google and Bing on certain keywords compared to other car websites in Kenya. The top keyword is ‘used cars Kenya’ and ‘used cars for sale in Kenya’. As mentioned above, it shows that Kenyans love used cars.
I personally love this website, it’s easy to navigate, lots of cars listed on the website and no many ads on the site like it is the case for Autobazaar.
So, do you intend to sell your car in Kenya? Do you expect to buy a car in Kenya? The above two car website in Kenya can give you a rough estimate of how much your car is likely to cost.
Advice: Make appropriate inquiries before buying a car from a seller you contact from any of the websites, conman thrive because of our ignorance
