    Hello BHW. I have an SEO client that wants to rank for 7 - 9 different local terms within 24 different towns. My plan is to create pages on the clients website for each individual combination, totaling 168 - 216 new pages. This seems crazy, but as far as I know this is the best / only way to target the individual terms correctly.

    Does anyone have any other ideas, or is this the route I should take?

    Good luck with duplicate content penalties mate... instead of 200, write 50 and include 4 locations in each. just my 2 cents.

    My plan is to write up templates for each service and use variables to easily populate different keywords. I've been considering the duplicate content issue, but I think I will be able to mitigate it quite a bit using this approach.

    duplicate content just prevents google from posting the same content twice in a search results. if he wants to rank in different cities, he isn't trying to get the same content on google twice anyway for any particular search - so there shouldn't be a penalty. if you throw the name of the city on each page, that should tell google which site to choose to list for each search

    Why not just buy unique content?

    In the end I may buy some content, but I don't believe I will. This is a client who will be paying top dollar, so I'm comfortable writing whatever content I need myself. However, I'm not too worried about duplicate content.
