    Question How to rank a page for a keyword in multiple cities?


    Hi,

    My website is targeting whole country. It's not location related. We dont have offices but we serve the whole nation. We dont have pages to cover multiple cities.

    For one specific keyword, we used to rank in multiple locations but now we are ranking only on few locations (first page) and in other locations, we are not ranking at all. But the keywords are not location-related.

    Why the same page optimized for same keyword ranking first page in few locations and not ranking in some locations.

    Thanks a lot

    You need to specify all the interesting locations on your page with keywords. It can be cities, districts, streets. Anything you need. And, of course, the keywords should be on the page. Locations can be specified optionally next to the keyword.

    You need to check the location, specify the targeted location.

    Doorway pages, city pages, location pages…there are many names for these pages on a website but they all aim to achieve the same thing. They want to target keywords for a specific location. While these pages worked for targeting local cities for several decades, Google has recently put the kibosh on them and even announced an effort to go after websites that have them specifically.

    1. Relevance – how well your search term matches the query
    2. Distance – how far your query is from the business
    3. Prominence – how well known they are plus stuff like (links, reviews, articles, and directories)

    it's possible that you are using country targeted keywords,

    you should find keywords with your targeted location, google keyword planner help you for it, you can find your targeted cities
    keywords, you should set your targeted country and city in keyword planner tool, add keywords in the site which are most searches and should add in your meta tags and content.

    you surely will get rank, your goal must be fixed that which types of audience you want and which location from,
    you can also choose your targeted city related keywords.

    If you are targeting for specific country or location then mention it in your blog.
    It will definitely show up in results.
