    Target dominant location using the homepage

    Hi LSF members, a question: If a company has one primary business location and one much smaller office in another city, would you use geo-target the primary location with the homepage and have a separate landing page for the small office. Or would you still create 2 separate geo-pages?
    Thanks

    Re: Target dominant location using the homepage

    Hi Blaine,

    Home usually has the most ranking power so I would use it for the main location.

    But for the benefit of the customers be sure to have a link to the other page.

    We did some URL testing after seeing this post. The results weren't 100% across the board, however, most sites did see a lift in rankings.

    Re: Target dominant location using the homepage

    I would target the main location on all pages of the site except the location page for the other office. I'll pretend it's an insurance office, here are the keywords I'd target.



    Home Page: Insurance Toronto
    Location Page (Toronto) - Insurance Agent Toronto
    Location Page (suburb) - Insurance Richmond Hill
    Auto Insurance Page - Auto Insurance Toronto
    Home Insurance Page - Home Insurance Toronto

    Etc...
