Getting Exposure in "Areas We Serve"

"It's one thing to optimize a company's website for the city in which its located. However, it's far more difficult to gain local search exposure for cities that the company serves, but is not physically located in." claims Tyler Tafelsky, OIC's lead SEO analyst. "Multi-city SEO programs are always a bit of challenge, especially when presented with situations like Leeway Ceramic Tile."

Tile Bloomington ILIn targeting Leeway Ceramic Tile's core geo-targets of Bloomington, Morton, Peru, and Peoria, OIC needed to establish keyword relevancy for these area, all while respecting the validity of each page and searcher intent. In doing so, OIC expanded upon the website and created new pages for "Areas We Serve."

This neutral means of establishing keywords relevancy was sufficient to communicate to both users and search engines that Leeway Ceramic Tile does indeed service customers in Bloomington, Morton, Peru, and Peoria without implying any false information or tangible locations that do not actually exist (a common issue in the local SEO profession among "black hats".)

So far, the both campaigns are gaining tread and Leeway Ceramic Tile is already realizing an influx of quality traffic to the website. All of the new pages have been crawled and indexed by Google, Bing, and Yahoo, and most of them are ranking on page one (some near the top.) OIC looks forward to a bright future with Leeway Ceramic Tile and helping the tile dealer gain increased visibility in the search engines.
