We normally do keyword research and will start with Google ad data for traffic (now able to target to the city we're targeting) then push all our main terms and their geo modified versions through Moz keyword tool to find SEO ranking difficulty to determine which terms to target. Here is an example:
Keyword

<colgroup><col></colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>
Avg. monthly searches

<colgroup><col></colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>
Competition

<colgroup><col width="65" style="width:65pt"> </colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>
Moz

<colgroup><col width="65" style="width:65pt"> </colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>
personal injury lawyer

<colgroup><col></colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>
18100.8858
Personal Injury Lawyer in Portland

<colgroup><col></colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>
170.9243

<tbody>
</tbody>

With this client's link profile, we should be able to rank for personal injury lawyer and has so much more average search volume than the geo modified version. Everything I read says we need the geo-modifier in the title, url, etc. Would you still say we should only target the portland version? They take cases in both Oregon and Washington states.
