We need to clarify that this discussion evolved from how to get your pages found in search results for multiple (search query +suburb name), not how to get your Google "My Business" pages to list for multiple suburbs.
There is a risk in forums of grabbing little bits of advice and over expanding their application. This maybe one example...
"...JohnAimit has suggested something similar in one of his posts, listing suburbs in the global footer."
The objective of site-wide footers is to expand the range of words for which a long tailed query can qualify.
So, if someone searches for, "driving lessons for teens on manual cars" and you have a page that ranks near top of the SERPs for this phrase, a footer that includes all your service area suburbs would probably ensure the same page ranked #1 for any search variant that also included any of your suburbs serviced.
I did not intend folk to think that simply adding suburb names in site-wide footers will be enough to attain a top ranking for more competitive search terms.
I also know you are in a market where near duplicate content of suburb names abound to target all of them +one search term. Take hope from the fact that such tactics are the easiest to knock out of the SERPs and that they target such a tiny volume of search queries.
This SEO search tactic is flawed becuase it wrongly presumes that most searches are made using one search term in combination with different suburb names. WRONG!!!!
There may be thousands of different search queries that include a suburb name. Inclusion of the suburb name anywhere on a page may be a very minor ranking factor.
So, I strongly recommend that you avoid creating near duplicate pages where all that changes is the suburb name.
This does not necessarily need to be approached as a separate page for each suburb. You could publish pages for:
1. L & P Driving lessonsEvery one of these 8 pages could include "areas we service" info and "reviews/testimonials" by suburb. Just make sure that when you publish a review, discuss where a specific staff memeber works, you include the suburb location in the text and in any image alt tags.
2. Lessons for mature drivers
3. Learner permit preparation
4. Overseas licence conversions
5. Freeway and city driving lessons
6. Driving lessons on automatic cars
7. Driving lessons on manual vehicles
8. Driving lessons with female tutors
I would expect your overall SE referrals to be better if you built your target suburb names into as many of your pages' content as possible rather than creating a single "suburb" page.
I offered this example of a competitor who adopts this type of SEO tactic. (NB. It is not a particularly strong example for Melbourne's western suburbs.)
