    Thanks for your invaluable tips.

    I have tried this multiple landing page scenario. It seemed to work great at first, but now I think Google has shunned it. Bing and Yahoo rate it well.

    I have 25 specific city pages, 12 with similar text and 13 with another.

    I’ll have to do some experimentations to see if I can get back in Google’s good graces.

    Darren: I just stumbled upon this post while viewing some of your other posts. Would you still recommend this strategy? I have a client, we have successfully optimized his site locally in our county and many towns but not all towns. I tried the footer with city listings, it hasn’t seemed to work, now I’m concerned about being penalized. Last week my new clients website was showing on page 1 under many keywords, today I did an analysis and we have dropped under several keywords. Any suggestions you can share?

      I would absolutely recommend this. As far as your client, is it a new site as well? Did you make changes to the site? Add content? Change themes? All of those things could have an effect. Or, Google could just be switching things up a bit.

    Thank you for the information. It does sound like a lot of work making location specific landing pages for all towns but I’m going to give it a try. And, yes the site is still fairly new, not yet 2 months old, and I have been adding content.

    Site pulls much better for keywords on Bing and Yahoo. Google seems a bit tougher to rank on, but I think most people use Google. I’ve read several articles about Bing having the edge, I don’t see that. Maybe I’m just “old school”.

    Darren, so here it is a year later, with all the Google changes, do you feel this is still a good practice? If so, how different should the pages be? Thanks

      I think the basis for the article still rules. Don’t stuff keywords, use them in the proper context on the page in order to let search engines know what the page is about…but at the same time, answer a question that your best client or customer would ask.
