    I am attempting to improve my electrical contracting website. I wanted to do geo-local service pages for each town and zip, for example GFCI Smithtown XXXX1,GFCI Jonestown XXXX2, etc... If I included an infographic that explained how a GFCI worked and or saved lives does this affect the duplicate content rules? or Do I just name the pic xxxxtownGFCIExplain.jpg for the town it is in?

    My reasoning were that most people just don't "get" electricity or how it works. So if I can have some type of visual or every page that I can get. I can attempt to cultivate the image of the electrician whom explains stuff to you. I believe the Big G00gle will find that to be reader experience worthy. I just don't have the time to do a custom infographic for every city and condition.

    Worst case, have a generic GFCI page and a specific town landing page with links for all the terms that lead off with their own page? Much less work I guess, but I am trying to dominate my local service area.

    Merry Christmas

    Got a couple questions for you actually if you don't mind?

    I am in the Contracting business for low voltage systems and was actually planning on getting into this niche myself since it doesn't look like there is much competition for certain key phrases.

    Don't want to know your specific niche but how are you doing in it? PR wise and monetarily.

    Also what have you focused your niche on without giving it away if you can. Would really like to pick your brain ;)

    I heard duplicate content only really matters if it is on your site more than once. Otherwise it becomes syndication, which is something different and gets confused easily.
