    I have a yellow page-ish directory which is currently doing the google dance.

    My question is about ranking for keywords. I am building links for my main keywords in my domain, which has let me hit page 1 of google during the dance - but how do you recommend dealing with other keywords related to the businesses in the directory?

    for example, lets say my website is OrlandoListings.com (just an example). I rank on the 1st page of google for the keywords "orlando listings". However, I also have thousands of businesses in my directory, everything from lawn mowers, to insurance companies to bars. Can i possibly rank for keywords related to these companies without spending tons of money buying backlinks with the related keywords for anchor text?

    I am working an offline angle on the directory - my major concern is when approaching a (lawn mowing) business they say "well you may rank #1 on google for orlando listings, but you don't rank at all for orlando lawn mowers".

    any suggestions?

    Make a folder for each location and a page for each buisness

    Not by hand (That would take you forever, but im sure there is an automated Tool out there)

    So google would spider

    And anyone searching South Beach Burritos would most likely get to your site
