    The_demon is correct about setting up custom landing pages. I'm assuming that you have a local business, so by setting up each city-targeted landing page, you can build citations for that city location and procure backlinks from local businesses in that area (as well as other authoritative backlinks) to help boost your position.

    If you decide to go the landing page route, remember to keep the content on each landing page unique. An old client of mine had their local business set up this way and it ranked fairly well in each city. Even if your site just targets those cities and you don't have a local business, it's still a good idea to keep duplicate content off of your site.

    Additionally, there's a local SEO section on this site that you may help you in future endeavours. I always recommend reading Techxan's posts if you can find them as he knew what he was talking about it when local SEO was concerned.

    thank you very much , i know landing page are benefit , but i am talking about global ranking key like : 'airplane ' if i search in Boston than i am #13 and if i search in Los angels than # 9 and serpbook and all tracking tools say that i rank for airpalne # 3.
    so is there another method to do that without creating landing page like (domain/city)?
