    Ordered 5 more niche edits and 20 other decent links.

    I also started building out service location pages that target "window cleaning + area within city", have done about 5 so far manually and will do 95 more with a spinner most likely. The 5 I already did got indexed within hours and they all rank on page 1 and some are #1

    after building those pages, ill build 100 more that target "gutter cleaning + area within city"

    Im not really too sure if making this many location pages will end up hurting my site or not, but im just going to try it

    I am trying to become successful in rank and rent. I am trying Maps listings and websites. I am thinking about starting a thread about where to outsource everything needed for rank and rent. For example, best sources for GMB verifications, citations, backlinks, content creation, reviews, and whatever else is needed. If anyone knows any threads of this nature, please let me know.

    Havent built any more location pages yet,I just made a big table and listed all post codes and the areas that we service that go with that post code and also link out from this location table to the page targeting that area. This page is ranking for keywords in areas that I dont even service (not ranking well, so I guess thats good. most are position 90) Hopefully that doesnt become an issue, impressions are up purely because of the location page that lists all 100 suburbs mainly.

    Nice progress. Good luck with finding clients. If you need any help, just ping me. I did local SEO and found success in selling social media services so I know how the whole operation goes.

    why you didnt focus on just one location and scale in it why did you choose to try a lot of locations 'pages" in one site ?
    i thnk it will be better to not target a lot of locations in just one site

    I am only targeting one city. the location pages I built target specific areas in that city.

    my homepage targets the main keyword which is "window cleaning + city"
    the location pages target "window cleaning + suburb"

    Update

    Added 30 location pages targeting suburbs. Didn’t spin the content just used duplicate content. All of these location pages are indexed, and seem to be ranking decent

    All your suburb pages are just the same as the main page just changing the city for the suburb?

    they were yeah, Ive actually removed them as they get basically no search volume and its probably not worth having in case I get penalised for duplicate content.

    Just searched for local trades, plumbers, cleaners, electricians, roofers, carpet cleaners, etc checked competition using ahrefs free backlinks checker and ubersuggest to check search volume.

    Dont want to invest in ahrefs until I know I can rank a site

    I ranked it first then tried selling the leads.

    People just seems to have enough customers in that area and I suck selling the idea. think thats the biggest issue.

    so what I do atm is trying to sell the leads before I get them if that makes sence

    So you make a website for example: taxi driver. Then you try to rank this site goold and rent it to a real taxi driver in your city?
