    Individual Local Landing Pages


    I'm trying to do some targeting for multiple areas my business offers service in and want to avoid getting hit for duplicate content. If I do individual pages for each area should I do completely separate content for each local page or can I get away with copying the page and changing the info about what area it's referring to?

    Does anyone have any examples of the best practice for pulling this off? I was thinking of on the main page providing links to the other pages and marking it as "Other Areas we Service" and for the links put the keyword and location we are targeting as the anchor text and title value.

    Thoughts, ideas?
