Best options to dominate my local area?

Hey guys, I am looking into trying to dominate in my area for computer repair, last I had heard on this subject to avoid being penalized it would be best practice to only add one or two separate pages at the most for different local areas. Here in Queens, NY there are many cities so that would be risky to try to cover all areas.

I am immediately situated in South Ozone park but annexed to Ozone Park, Jamaica and Richmond hill so those alone will involve 4 pages. I guess best I can do is maybe add a separate page for only my immediate area and zip code which is south ozone park but anything I can do for the other three areas mentioned or any better way to "safely" go about this please?

      Hello and sorry for the late reply, was doing some heavy kw research, now that I got the best kw's with low competition how should I list it, like this kw as an example "computer repair services":

      computer repair services south ozone park, queens, NY 11420

      or just

      computer repair services south ozone park

      or

      computer repair services south ozone park 11420


      Which of those three will be best please?

        When you say "low competition" I hope you don't mean the competition reported by the Google Keyword Planner. That has nothing to do with if a keyword is easy or hard to rank for.

          No, research done mainly by competition reports plus GSC. Just need to know which would be best for this to add this kw as a whole "computer repair services south ozone park, queens, NY 11420"
          so it will cover my local area [south ozone park] with my zip code [11420] in my County [Queens] and my State [NY].

          Or if to go with only my town "Computer repair services South Ozone Park" and leave out the rest?

            Well, computer repair services south ozone park 11420 looks pretty shitty. No idea how you would put that into content in a way without it looking like trash.

            It really won't matter which one you use.

    No, that kw "computer repair services" was just as an example and will not be one of my focus kw's. What I am asking is for local customers targetting, should I put only my town after whatever kw or should I also add my zip code or county or state to it to cover outside my town area at the same time, that is my question here.

      I wouldn't put the town, zip code, county, or state.

      Flash drive data recovery isn't a local keyword. In this case (global keyword) you would need to associate a local keyword with your ranked webpage.

      You're talking about two different types of SEO in this thread local + global keywords.

        South ozone park is the town in which I am located so that's where my focus should be as priority not so?

        If I want to target a wider area then my countty [borough] is queens which is made up of many towns [cities] and all of the many cities make up New York State.

  • You can also run Facebook ads for targeted city or area, SMO also a good option for local businesses.
