    Ranking for surrounding cities

    I'm not a newbie at SEO, actually had my hands in it now for 14 years, but not at the local level.

    To rank a site for surround cities, are there on-site tips we can apply? I know google has gotten so sophisticated with all it's updates, it's scary to over-optimize a site now, but to rank for say cities in a 10 mile radius what can we do "on-site" that will help?

    I'm well aware of page and description titles, but I don't know if it's still okay to have a statement on the homepage saying something like...

    "Also serving city, city, city and city."

    Or, if there are more effective strategies to do this and improve those rankings?

    I was referring to organic seo not places.

    Re: Ranking for surrounding cities

    trentster you replied as if you are Mike.

    And in a different thread you confused us replying the OTHER way around. (Mike replied to trentsters post.)

    It appears you are the same person.
