is an online directory.

When I research this domain, I find that some local keywords (city+state) are on page one of google, while other keywords are on the 3rd+ page. The site is doesn't have any additional backlinks pointing to to the page 1 keywords. I'm trying to figure out why some keywords rank on page one while others don't. Also I'm trying to figure out how I could get all city and state keywords ranked on page one of google for a site like this.

Here are some keywords that rank on page one of google:
"podiatrist Jupiter fl" 3rd under local listings.

Where as ""podiatrist memphis tn" ranks 18th.

what would I need to do to optimize "podiatrist memphis tn" to get hirer on the rankings?

    Build links using the anchor text "podiatrist memphis tn" pointing to the ranking URL "". You should see improvement in terms of ranking from just building links using that method.

    Do local listing for the same keyword for which you want high rank in SERP. Also do blog commenting, forum posting, blogging using your targeted keyword. This will help you in generating backlinks and ultimately your keyword will get high position in SERP.
