    Analyzing a generic keyword with no geo modifier for multiple locations

    Thanks as always Linda! Managed to relocate it on Chrome. I think In Bright you set the location initially and cant add multiple cities, as opposed to Whitespark where you seem to be able to select numerous cities within the same report. So it seems it the demo anyway. I'll look into it in...

    Hack to Check for Google Local Penalties

    Fair point, I will try with some other clients when I find some time. When I am in the dashboard the listing is suspended, yet I still have the option to see the listing in Google maps and Google search. I will get to the bottom of it, and post Google's answer ( new thread) on the off chance...

    Location in page title

    Thanks everyone for all your input! It sounds kinda crazy, but what works for me is always asking myself "Am I describing this page properly?" and does the subject matter (generally a service/product) warrant having the city included. It works for me anyway :) although I get some strange...
