    Examples of Amazing Local Landing Pages - List them Here!

    With Miriam's recent Moz post (https://moz.com/blog/overcoming-your...-landing-pages) I wanted to start a discussion here to see what examples of great local service area pages you've seen from small businesses?

    I'll start with a few:

    Thanks so much Joy. You totally read my mind and I would've posted that if I had 2 hands.
    Plus was really hoping someone would share Miriam's post.

    Great minds think alike!
    Thanks again.

    Re: Examples of Amazing Local Landing Pages - List them Here!

    We took a slightly different approach for our client -- a pet resort in Truckee that wanted to act as a "service-area" business for the larger resort area. They wanted to attract visitors/dog owners coming to various ski resorts in the Tahoe region. The goal was to have the owners bring their dog(s) on vacation rather than board them back home - and leave them with our client while on the slopes.

    So we created a variation of location landing pages that addressed that goal:

    Standard landing page:

    Truckee-Tahoe Pet Lodge in Truckee, CA

    Example ski tourist landing page:

    Bring Your Dog to Squaw Valley - Luxury Dog Boarding Suites

    Eventually, the goal is to rank for resort location keywords for searchers driving to the Tahoe region from the Sacramento-Stockton-Modesto region.

    Thank you Joy for the post. While we used email forms in the past with not real good results, I think its time to do it again. This is one of the landing pages we use EuroPerformance_BMW_Service_Repair I would love to hear your feedback.

    Thanks Again.

    Re: Examples of Amazing Local Landing Pages - List them Here!

    Ed,

    I like the landing page concept you have, but I do have a few suggestions for you. One, like you mentioned, it might be time to test the contact form again. Contact forms are critical for people who want to get more info about the service, but aren't ready to make that big step and call a person. I actually do this a lot... especially when I don't have time to make a call now; I'll fill out a contact form. Personally I find it better to schedule a call via email instead of making a call on first visit. Softer conversions are always a good idea to add in.

    My second tip is to link back to your main website. I find it a little more trustworthy if I can visit a full website and check out a little more info before I give you my contact info.

    Once again, these are both personal feelings about landing pages so the only way to figure out whether they will work is by running statistically relevant A/B tests yourself. Just because something works for another business, doesn't mean it'll work for you. Test, test, and test some more

    Hi Erick,

    Thank you for the good and helpful feedback.

    You are right about the softer conversions, some people are hesitant to call the first time. Regarding the link back to the website, I am glad you mentioned it. We use to include it in all of them, but I hadn't noticed that our web designer is not doing it now. Time to have a nice conversation with her about the link and start adding the email forms. The A/B testing, yes its a definite must do.

    Thanks again Erick.

    Re: Examples of Amazing Local Landing Pages - List them Here!

    Great topic! Very curious to see some good examples, preferably that not only look good, but also rank well organically in different cities.

    Just today I was analyzing a competitor who has a large number of local landing pages that all rank really well for high-volume keywords. I would have posted them here as a success story, if backlink analysis in majestic hadn't revealed the truth behind their success - it's all bought/hacked backlinks with relevant anchors.

    This edition of wbf is also relevant for this thread.

    San Ramon, CA Plumber | Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Drain Services - this example from JoyHawkins' post while looks good and clean, seems suboptimal to me at the very least. All their landing pages have duplicate content (e.g. Antioch, CA Plumber | Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Drain Services).

    Maybe it's just me, but for me that page doesn't look right. The footer area says "this is a bottom slider area" or something like that, and the content looks like it's supposed to be in columns but it doesn't seem to be aligned like it should. is that page no longer supposed to be actively in use?
