Local SEO - City List on web page


,

First post here and wanted to get your suggestion.

I run a local service business in a city with many smaller cities around it. I want to get business in each city. Currently I have my cities that I service in a list on the left hand side of all my pages.

1. Am I getting any benefit out of listing each city on every page
2. Am I better off just listing this on my homepage

Other posts have suggested creating a seperate page for each city, but I feel that this may confuse my customers.

My site is www azbouncepro com if anyone has a suggestion.

Thx.

Do I need a street address for local seo?....

Hi all, New to the forum and looking forward to the conversation. Here's my situation. I currently do my work from my home office but am looking to establish an office outside for a place to meet with clients. I would also like to take advantage of the SEO advantages that come with that. I live in a community that is in one state (North Augusta, SC - USA), and I really would like to get an office in North Augusta if possible. However, there is more opportunity for business in Augusta, Georgia which is still a part of the same community (just across the river). However, I'm wondering if I really want to get first page placement, for example, for "augusta web design" will not having a physical street address in Augusta work against me. Any thoughts on that Just been trying to work through this as I look for office space. Appreciate your thoughts.

Name servers and seo

, I have multiple related and interlinked sites which were on same shared ip. Now i changed host and i have 5 available ip's. What do you think it's better for seo: 1) to put every site on same ip with name servers (for example site1 and ns1.site1 and ns2.site1 on ip1, site2 and ns1.site2 and ns2.site2 on ip2, etc...). 2) to use 3 ip's to spread sites on them and 2 ip's for name servers (in this case every site would be on ns1.site1 and ns2.site1). 3)to use all 5 ip's for sites and name servers but name servers on different ip's and domains (on first ip: site1, ns1.site2, ns1.site3 second ip: site2, ns1.site1, ns2.site3, third ip: site3, ns2.site1, ns2.site2, etc.) 4)some other variation you think it's better... Directly linked sites would be on different ip's of course.

Are "popups" hurting your seo??

anybody here lost ranking after using a dynamic popup/under/ etc - I read this somewhere I dont want to test it myself only to find out its true , The way you do it wont be spammy, its what information your giving to me. Sell me some crap like meds or enlarge my penis then its spammy. But if you really are offering something useful adn relevent to the page then this I wouldn't see as spammy. And thats assuming you make it passed my spam filters and pop up blockers!

Help with new seo

Hi all, I am new to SEO so I've come to ask for your professional advice. I am currently putting a website together for a friend which is hoping to boost their online market. The website I have done is powered by Joomla and is using the seo option to change the urls to look like html pages instead of 1 php script. Firstly I would like to know which is better to use... 1. Domain.com/electrical-training.html 2. Domain.com/electrical-training 3. Domain.com/courses/electrical-training.html Also does it matter whether I use - or _ Secondly, if the company provides electrical training in several areas, do i add a page for each town. Eg, Electrical Training In Paris, Electrical Training In London, etc... Would i then put the sub-areas as text within these areas Finally, can someone explain briefly how landing pages work and should I be using them
