Hi, I am trying to come up with the easiest and best way to rank a service business URL for branches in multiple cities to each come up in the local directory search map.
If you are trying to submit and rank a URL for local geo targeted cities, but had a national URL like examples.com, would I be able to submit to Google city by city by adding the city to the end or the beginning as a sub-domain; and which style would rank easier if so. Here are the examples just so you see what I mean.
www.example.com - national www.example.com/boston www.boston.example.com
So my goal is, if possible, build a network of sites where I can just add the city and we can get ranked locally for the same concept, but in the different cities. Or would I have to have a different URL for every city to get picked up in the local searches in the map area which wold require building lots of different websites and obviously much more time consuming and difficult than dynamically adding the cities and editing the new landing pages accordingly.
