Yeah, just be careful with it... I prefer using counties instead of cities. If you use cities, it's literally using the legal boundaries of the city. Counties obviously covers all of the cities.I know this is an old thread but I'm just wondering: is this still true?
I added about 20 small surrounding cities a long time ago. I just had a pretty savvy with GMB friend tell me that his views dropped after adding service areas, so he removed them. I found this post via Google search of the question.
Do you currently recommend service areas? Do you know whether they could possibly cause a negative impact on ranking in those areas?
