The Nitty Gritty Of City Landing Pages For Local Businesses

If you own a local business and are investigating ways to utilize the web to promote your company, chances are, you?ve come across discussions of strategies involving city landing pages.

The creation of high quality city landing pages may not be the right strategy for every local business, but when done properly for appropriate business models, they can increase your visibility on the web and generate new leads, calls and conversions for your business. In this article, I?ve attempted to cover the FAQs I most often encounter?

Oh, thank you so much for mentioning this, Linda! And thanks for the nice comment, Phil.

I'd love to have the time to blog more often. I used to, but it just seems like there aren't enough hours in the day. I hope that quality can make up for a paucity of quantity.

Very much appreciate this being shared with our awesome community here!
