For clarity, directory type with multiple clients/businesses sharing one domain:
www,dallas-professionals,com with sub-pages as follows:
The upside to having individual websites is that you can laser focus your content for relativity and you can sell your site, outright, should you choose to do so. You can also grab an exact-match domain for keyword targeting/SEO. However, you will have to purchase multiple domains and you are likely to do more work/maintenance in the long run. You will also not get the benefits of having a fuller, authoritative site with lots of inner-linking. You will also lose more in the event that you are unable to lease that property.
I'm leaning towards more authoritative sites with a directory-style domain that targets individual towns/cities.
What is the general consensus?
