    A suggestion – before you put the city name, make sure that people favor location that instead of the county name (or a nearby bigger city) using a keyword ranking tool.

    Hi Jay, excellent point, people don’t always use the city name for local searches. I’ll have a video lesson in the future on free keyword research tools for just this type of occasion.
