Good morning,

I'm left scratching my head a little with this one. In a nutshell I usually create an inner page for my client e.g to avoid blending the results and loosing the organic listing.

A client has requested I use their contact page as the designated inner page. Initially I cant see a problem with it as I can jazz up the contact page, change the title, H1 ect.... as per my usual strategy.

The only concern I have is I've never seen a Plus Local listing with or

My gut feeling is to create a completely separate inner page and keep the contact page as it is.

Please note they don't have multiple business locations, just the one. Thoughts on a postcard please ;)

HaHa Mornin' Gio. I'm getting ready for bed! :)

Interesting strategy for keeping an organic listing. I've flipped it the other way before. Ranked the internal page organically and linked home to G+L.

I don't think you normally see anyone link to contact us just because that page is normally pretty barren of content. But I don't see why you could not link to contact us page as long as it was beefed up with relevent content. But a page named /citykeyword.html would likely rank higher. But then again I always have felt like Google probably looks at the contact us page is the most important location page on local sites, so maybe it would be fine.
