    Nope, Don't Try to Rank for it

    Actually, If I were you, I wouldn't try to rank for anything, Instead, I would to do a little bit of reading first

    How many monthly searches does your keyword get?
    Can you monetize it?
    Can you beat the SERP competition?

    That's all you need to be asking yourself. :D

    If you need to ask this question then you shouldn't be selling SEO services.

    Seriously. How are you going to sell a service if you need to ask this? Do some keyword research, some competition analysis and make a decision.

    Yes. Lots of clients. (come on - you have SEO skills and you need to ask this?)

    Every city is different. Since you have SEO skills rank some lead capture pages and test. Do multiple landing pages, rotate them out, see what works and go from there.

    Neither do i live in your city neither do you live in mine. Sorry to be rude but your question is completely out of context.
    There is money to be made if your city has searches for keyword seo city. if thats what you wanted to ask.

    I would not hire you as my SEO consultant if you are still going around in SEO forum asking question like that. I think you should start reading more, experiment more before start up your business. Good luck.

    I am sorry I have to agree with everyone else you need to do a lot more reading & learning before you start wanting to charge people for your services.
