    What do you suggest for SEO?


    For my violin teaching site, is it important to list only the three locations I teach in and/or surrounding areas? My concern is SEO.

    Thank you.

    I personally would put that on the contact us page, list all 3 locations.

    For the SEO in the begining start with with one local keyword which is less competitive means "violin teaching in locationA", in the meta tag and heading tag use this keyword. In the content use this keyword and use keywords for the other two locations. In this way you proceed.

    artbeat, I did an inspect element for the contact page, and the body of the text of the contact page is only an h2 not an h1. Should I still list my three locations?

    You can add the locations in a number of places. In addition to the Contact page, the About Us page would also be a good option. You can even add a "Proudly serving...XYZ" in you meta description or footer. Your location doesn't have to (and shouldn't) be an H1.

    Hi There,

    I would recommend to create 3 location specific pages and optimise those pages with SEO friendly Title and meta descriptions. Content needs to be developed as per the target keywords based on competitor's content analysis.

    You can create separate pages for each cities and use city name in content and url but dont do keyword stuffing. If you have physical offices in those locations then create your google my business page for all those locations and do good quality local seo to increase rankings. Google is smart enough now to find if you have physical address or not. If you dont have any office in areas you are trying to rank then google will not give you much value like other local businesses have. <snip>

    This.

    Create a separate page for each city you want to target and link to those pages from the home page. This way the links you send to your home page will also be helping your city pages.

    No - that is a subdomain and would be treated as a completely different website by google.

    - mysite.com/violin-lessons-mytown/
    - mysite.com/violin-lessons-thattown/
    - mysite.com/violing-lessons-othertown/

    As a general note be a little wary. Everyone who has commented on this thread has absolutely no reputation (with the exception of Test-OK). One of them has already been banned (probably for trying to lever in some links in the mistaken idea they would count for something).

    That doesn't mean someone with no reputation should not be listened to, they might be new to this forum. But whatever they say should be taken with caution and not acted on until you have a second opinion from someone with reputation.

    PS1 - get yourself onto WordPress, your site has loads of great content but its presentation is a disaster
    PS2 - I think you could do really well attracting links/traffic if you put some of your tips and content on YouTube and optimized it correctly
